The Cisco Meraki MT10 a cloud managed Temperature and Humidity sensor that is exceptionally simple to configure and deploy due to its integration with the Meraki dashboard and the use of BLE technology. The MT family eliminates the complex and costly setup required by traditional solutions by removing the limitations of placement of these sensors.
About this Guide
This guide provides instructions on how to install and configure your MT10 Environmental Sensors.
- Rainbow - MT is initializing or looking for a gateway.
- Solid Green(for n seconds) - Connected to a gateway.
- Solid Amber(for n seconds) - MT could not find a gateway to connect
- Flashing Green - MT is upgrading its firmware.
- Flashing Amber - MT is running on a low battery.
NOTE: To conserve battery life, the LEDs on the MT10 don't always remain ON.
General Purpose Button
The MT10 has a general purpose button on the top which allows you to wake up the sensor and test if it is able to connect to a gateway. This will also upload the latest sensor data to the gateway.
Factory Reset Button
Next to the battery compartment, there is a pinhole button to factory reset the sensor. If the button is pressed and held for at least ﬁve seconds and then released, the sensor will reboot and it will be restored to its original factory settings by deleting all configuration information stored on the unit.
The MT10 sensors have a USB-C Port on the bottom that can be used to provide an alternate source of power using a compatible accessory.

Configure Your Network in Dashboard
The following is a brief overview only of the steps required to add an MT10 to your network. For detailed instructions about creating, configuring and managing Meraki Sensor networks, refer to the online documentation (https://documentation.meraki.com/MT).
- Login to http://dashboard.meraki.com. If this is your first time, create a new account.
- Find the network to which you plan to add your sensor or create a new network.
- Add the sensors to your network. You will need your Meraki order number (found on your invoice) or the serial number of each sensor, which looks like Qxxx-xxxx-xxxx, and is found on the back of the unit or included in the box.
- Add the gateway(MV or MR) to the same network as the sensor.
List of Compatible Gateways:
|MV12(W/NE), MV22(X), MV32, MV72(X)||MR36, MR45, MR46, MR46E, MR55, MR56, MR76, MR86|
WARNING: Environmental Sensors are only supported with 2nd Gen MV Cameras and Wifi 6 Compatible APs.
Minimum Firmware Version
MT sensors can only connect to a compatible MV gateway running MV 4.8+. Please refer to Managing Firmware Upgrade to schedule an upgrade.
In order to use a compatible MR device as a gateway for MT sensors, the Network in question should be set to MR27.4.1. This is a patch release that is based off MR 27.5(latest stable) with additional support for MT sensors. Please refer to Managing Firmware Upgrade to schedule an upgrade.
Each MT10 comes with a Quick Install Guide within the box. This pamphlet contains detailed step by step guides and images to assist you in the physical installation of the sensors.
Choosing your Mounting Location
As MT sensors rely on a gateway for connectivity to the Dashboard, while choosing a mounting location, make sure that a working compatible gateway is in range of the sensor.
Some examples of ideal mounting locations:
- On a wall for ambient temperature and humidity readings.
- Inside a rack to monitor the rack temperature.
For most mounting scenarios, the MT10 has flexible options to provide quick and simple mounting. The instructions are as follows:
1. Start by removing the battery compartment cap and inserting the 2 AA battery into the battery compartment.
2. In order to mount the sensor on different locations, there are 3 options
a. Screws - The mounting plate can be directly screwed onto the wall
b. VHB Tape - Double-sided VHB tape can be used to stick the mounting plate on any type of surface.
c. Magnet - Stick the magnet on any surface and the mounting plate can be stuck to the Magnet.
Once the mounting plate is on the desired surface, slide the MT10 sensor onto the plate and use the included Torx screw to secure the sensor.
Testing the Connection
Once the device is mounted at the desired location and added to a network with a compatible gateway, press the General Purpose Button on the top of the sensor to wake up the sensor and sync with the nearest gateway. Refer to LED Indicators section for more details on the status of the sensor.
When the sensor is connecting to a gateway for the 1st time, it will blink Green LED which indicates that it is upgrading to the latest firmware configured on the Dashboard
