The Monnit Wi-Fi open/closed sensor provides information on the
status of doors, windows, cabinets, etc. Know if a building or
specific area is being accessed when it should not be, or if a door
or window has been left open. An integrated 802.11 b/g
transmitter allows the device to 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 Utility
for Windows, keeping the user's Wi-Fi network secure. User
defined 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
Sensor Monitoring software and is viewable from any web
enabled device. Email and SMS messages can be configured
through the online system to alert the user immediately when a
defined parameter has been met or exceeded.
