The Meraki MT12 Water Leak Detection Sensor

Like everything Meraki makes, the Meraki MT12 is easily and masterfully controlled from the cloud. Meraki’s cloud platform allows you to deploy anywhere, and control everything. Real easy. So what is it?

The Meraki MT12

The MT12 is a water leak detection sensor. It helps protect from failed HVAC systems, adverse weather conditions, and leaky pipes. Because these are bad things. And, like all the MT sensors, the MT12 automatically pairs with Wi-Fi 6 MR access points and 2nd Generation MV smart cameras via BLE. This gives near-instant setup and seamless scalability.

You can quickly set up and manage as many environmental sensors as you want, to monitor temperature, humidity, leaks, and intrusion. Just insert the batteries and add to the dashboard. Just peel and stick. It’s literally that simple. MT environmental sensors automatically connect to existing MR and MV devices. No more on-premise servers, dedicated gateways, and management software.

Features of the Meraki MT12

The MT12 includes an 8′ water leak detection cable and can be extended up to 16′. It is sensitive enough to detect as little as 3 mL of liquid, and is IPX5-rated for durability. In addition, it has five days on-board storage and up to five years of battery life. It also has An otional AC-to-USB-C power adapter. You can build on top of the Meraki platform using APIs or the vast partner community and customize workplace operations.

And it’s built from the ground up to be easy to manage without compromising on power and flexibility. You can have your choice of flexible alerts via email, SMS, mobile push notifications and Webhooks.

And the MT12 is secure!

Of course it is! Each Meraki MT sensor features a Trust Anchor module. This securely authenticates the device and encrypts all communication with the sensor gateways. Combined with automated firmware updates, the MT12 packs a powerful security punch in a smart package.

In conclusion

There’s a lot of different components to IT infrastructure that vary tremendously in scale, cost, and complexity. It all depends on the size of your organization, and the size of your budget. But there’s on thing that pretty much ALL IT networking gear has in common: It likes to be dry.

So, Meraki has introduced sensors like the MT12 to accomplish this Very affordably, and VERY easily. Other solutions tend to be complicated to install. They also don’t scale and are tough to use. They do not give businesses simple and reliable visibility into their critical assets. The MT series remedies this by enabling you to maximize network uptimes, reduce equipment failure and unnecessary site visits, and deliver great customer service.

These sensors are simple, scalable and secure. And they connect to the dashboard using the MV/MR which removes the need for expensive gateways. Customers can now gain real-time visibility into their critical business environment form a single pane of glass.
