The Monnit Wi-Fi activity sensor is a vibration sensing unit with an
integrated 802.11 b/g radio transmitter that can be easily
programmed to work with any existing Wi-Fi network. This version of
the Wi-Fi sensor uses a detachable high gain antenna to provide a
20-30% increase in range over the standard Wi-Fi sensor. Monnit
Wi-Fi sensors can be easily programmed with Wi-Fi network security
via a low cost USB programming cable, available here, and the free
MoWi Setup Utility for Windows® PC's, keeping the user's Wi-Fi
network secure. User defined transmission intervals (heartbeats) and
sensor threshold settings ensure that sensor data is received when
needed, based on the application. All sensor data is stored securely
in the iMonnit Online Sensor Monitoring software and is viewable
from any web enabled device. Email and SMS text messages can be
configured through the online system to alert the user immediately
when a defined parameter has been met or exceeded.
