Collaborators Connect Wireless Sensors To The Cloud

Monnit Corp. is partnering with Cradlepoint to offer wireless sensor-to-cloud connectivity solutions for IoT. Under the partnership, Monnit’s ALTA wireless sensor adapters integrate with Cradlepoint wireless edge routers to provide reliable and secure connectivity of sensors to cloud-based monitoring applications.


Monnit claims its ALTA products offer four times the wireless range (1,200+ feet, non-line-of-site) and significantly stronger battery life than traditional sensors (12+ years on two AA batteries at 10-minute check-ins). The components also include bank-level security for data transmissions, onboard memory for data logging and over-the-air updates allowing for remote maintenance and feature enhancements.
