Overview

The recommended Canteen Monnit temperature sensor self-install procedures are detailed below. The Phase 1 - Off-Site Planning iMonnit tasks (steps two through four) can be performed off-site if the location information, gateway, and sensor details are known. The Phase 2 - On-Site Setup includes the on-site software installation, physical hardware setup, and connectivity confirmation procedures.

 

Phase 1 – Off-Site Planning

  2. A location is created or confirmed as existing on the iMonnit website. This can be done by Canteen personnel (or 365 Support).
  3. A gateway device is associated with or confirmed as existing at the location in iMonnit. This can be done by Canteen personnel (or 365 Support).
  4. Sensors are associated with the gateway device and location in iMonnit. This can be done by Canteen personnel (or 365 Support).
