The Storage Monitor acts basically like a Storage Drawer, but connected to your RS system. Sneak right click it with an empty hand to open its menu, where you can set what block you want to display. Then, you can punch it to pull a single item out, sneak punch to pull a stack, or right click to insert items.

The Wireless Transmitter allows you to access the RS system within 16 blocks of itself using Wireless Grids of any type.
To set the Wireless Grid to the RS system, sneak right click it on the Controller.
The Detector will emit a Redstone signal according to how its set. You can set it to emit when it has over, under, or exactly a specific amount of a specific item or fluid.
