MT30 Datasheet - Smart Automation Button



Organizations are turning toward digital technologies to streamline processes, create new customer experiences, and adapt to evolving business challenges. 


The Cisco Meraki MT30, part of the Meraki MT sensor portfolio, is a smart automation button designed to automate common tasks or trigger specific actions at the press of a button. MT30 comes with an automation builder feature on the Meraki dashboard that makes it easy to build workflows custom to your business needs, including native integrations with other Meraki products. 


With the click of a button, MT30 can alert staff members when a customer needs assistance, turn off Wi-Fi to help students focus in school, replenish material on a manufacturing line, or control office lighting to decrease energy consumption. With MT30 and the cloud-first Meraki platform, anything is possible. 

Smart sensors. Smarter businesses

Meraki MT accelerates deployment, simplifies management, and provides data-driven business outcomes. Wire-free installation, flexible mounting options, and automatic pairing make it easy to provision thousands of sensors in a short amount of time. Centralized cloud management and open APIs enable MT sensors to be managed alongside other networked devices or integrated with any business system.
