Monnit Corporation's ALTA Insure

Debuting February 2019, the premise of Monnit’s ALTA Insure program is simple: lose the loss. 

ALTA Insure fuses the CRE-proven ALTA remote monitoring platform and iMonnit software, creating a facility monitoring program. At ALTA Insure’s core are enterprise-grade wireless sensors that enable building operators to monitor what matters most via PC or smartphone. If something goes wrong, sensors trigger an alert via text, email, or call; steps can be taken to protect people, places, and things. More than 70 sensor types provide boiler room to boardroom coverage.

Cost savings

For $310 (one sensor and one gateway), a facility can be protected. And the ROI is exponential: One pilot installation saved a customer $500,000+ in losses from frozen pipes and water damage. Monnit Wireless Sensors can help lower operating costs too—drop-in current meters identify increasing power consumption that foreshadows machine failure; vibration sensors point to declining machine health.

Technological advancements

ALTA Insure’s sensors and gateways have an industry-leading wireless range (1,200+ feet, non-line-of-site); each gateway can accommodate 100 sensors. Monnit’s Encrypt-RF® technology provides bank-grade security via 256-bit exchange and AES-128 CTR for data messages.


With ALTA Insure, users own their data and can access it anytime, anywhere with iMonnit software via PC or smartphone app. iMonnit Basic for essential monitoring configuration is free; iMonnit Premiere provides advanced management for $39 annually.

Tenant satisfaction

As a building’s check engine light™, ALTA Insure gives owners and operators data-driven insight to lower costs, enhance reliability, and bolster tenant satisfaction and lease renewals.
