Devices

A device is a data stream which generates measurement data on a location. It can be an IoT device or a webhook from a gateway or a connection to an existing database.

IoT Device

In case the measurement data comes directly from an IoT device then this IoT device can be connected to a location. This is done by filling in the unique hashID which is listed on the device. In case the measurement data comes from another data source though for example a webhook, then the connection process is carried out in the same way. To see how to generate hashIDs or how to set up such links see the connectivity environment section.

It is also possible to set the measurement frequency of the device in the same overview. Many devices have the ability to adjust the measurements frequency remotely.

Commands

Many devices also use bi-directional communication to activate specific functionality, change measurement frequency or update the device firmware. You can view the specific device commands by going to commands. There you can schedule a new command or you can see the history of executed or planned commands. The device supplier can configure which commands are visible in the monitoring environment.

Search syntax

It is possible to search the commands with different constraints such as whether commands were executed, for specific devices, which user created the command and whether it was planned on or before a specific date.
