At the point of immediate contact, the ALTA touch activated wireless button sensor sends a notification signal, that is based on the priority of the contact. Only immediate contact notification is sent. To ensure successful delivery of the signal to the receiving system, the button press sensor is equipped with an LED response indicator.

The sensors from ALTA offer an extended range, which is up to 3 to 4 times longer than other sensor platforms in the market. This extended range also provides enhanced non-line-of-sight reach, up to 1,200+ feet, especially through walls (12-14 walls typical).
The Wireless Button Press Sensor makes use of cutting-edge Frequency-hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology. This, in turn, offers the sensors greater interference immunity, when in close proximity to other wireless devices. The increased immunity helps in seamless connectivity and transmission of data in real time.
ALTA sensors are backed by a state-of-the-art power management system that offers almost twice the battery life of Monnit’s standard wireless sensors.
- Coin cell sensors battery life: Up to 3+ years
- AA and Industrial sensors battery life: 12+ years.
Monnit’s new Encrypt-RF® Security (256-bit Diffie Hellman key exchange and AES-128 CBC encryption for all sensor data messages) is deeply integrated into all ALTA products. This provides robust security at all communication points, i.e. from the sensor to the gateway, gateway to software, and then back again.
Integrated onboard data storage allows ALTA sensors to store data messages if communication to a wireless gateway is disrupted (power outage, Internet outage, or out of range). Undelivered messages are stored in the sensor’s memory (up to the last 512 messages) and are also timestamped. Once the gateway communication is restored, the messages are automatically transmitted.
Over-the-air updates allow ALTA products to be updated remotely if new fixes or features become available.
The standard version of this sensor is powered by two replaceable 1.5 V AA size batteries (included with purchase). This sensor is also available with a line power option. The line powered version of this sensor has a barrel power connector allowing it to be powered by a standard 3.0 – 3.8 V power supply (Included with Line Power option upgrade).
The line powered version also uses two standard 1.5 V AA batteries as backup for uninterrupted operation in the event of line power outage.
Power options must be selected at time of purchase, as the internal hardware of the sensor must be changed to support the selected power requirements.
