You can monitor your sensors at any time

Let’s now move on to the other news of the moment: the content of the exclusive area.

The goal of this page is to allow each of you to quickly and interactively consult your sensors.

Once you enter the “MySensors” area, you will see a screen similar to this one.

This new version adds features to make this process interactive and more informative.

New Features

  1. Sorting: thanks to the buttons at the top page you can sort the list of sensors the way you like. The features currently available are:
    • Air Quality: Displays the sensors with the best overall air quality, also called AQI and vice versa.
    • Reliability: Displays the sensors that sent fewer streams than expected in the previous day and vice versa.
    • Status: Displays the sensors that sent the last stream and vice versa.
  2. Infobox: the time at which all information was received is displayed.
  3. Update: this button will allow you to refresh the information in this exclusive area.
  4. Search bar: will allow you to search for a sensor by Device ID or by Sensor ID.
  5. Information about the sensor: inside the left side section you can find useful information about the selected sensors.

Top Features

Let’s conclude the article by talking about the features we are mostly proud of, and which we think will help the user:

  1. Data export: once a sensor has been selected, you will be allowed to download the complete data that your sensor has recorded. This feature returns the hourly average of measurements for up to 31 days.
  2. Export of rewards: it is possible to download two CSV files containing all the information regarding the transactions read directly from the algorithm blockchain. After selecting the desired sensors and time interval, you can download a first file containing all the transactions and a second file containing a summary of what is present in the first file.
  3. Selection of the type of measurement to be displayed in the graphs. (For example CO, CO2, NO2, AQI, PM2.5 etc).
  4. Possibility to access this exclusive section also from a mobile phone.

Keep watching our Planet and stay tuned for more announcements coming soon!
