In the connectivity module, you will be able to see the connections and devices in the default List window or in a Network Tree window. The List allows the user to add, remove, or archive devices and sensors, edit their configurations, analyze the communication quality and the status of each device. The Network Tree brings visibility of how the devices and loggers are interacting with the gateways.
Here you have visibility of your connections, devices and sensors. It is also possible to share, edit names or delete devices and instruments.
The system counts with a color code that means:
In the first access, you'll be requested to add a Thread. Make sure you have properly set up your Thread network and the LED is flashing green. Once you have your Thread on, please follow the steps below.
* You will be redirected to the Thread's configuration page.
The Network Tree can be accessed by clicking on the button highlighted (blue) in the image and is a great tool to see all THREADs, devices, sensors and connections on a single screen. The layout moves in descending order from left to right. You can perform all of the same functions as on the main Network List page while visualizing devices and instrument associations.
If you notice any device with a yellow icon, it means you have selected it by checking its box on the left side of the connection/device's name. Holding Ctrl (Command on a Mac System) and clicking on a sensor or device in the network tree will also turn them yellow. The yellow text signifies that the selected sensors can be modified using the tools populated at the top of the Network Tree, which are explained below.
This page provides a quick view of the communication quality and the periods in which THREADs have been online or offline.
When the Thread is working as a Gateway, its name will be shown in green.
Accessibility, Packet Loss, and Latency Jitter are the three potential issues that can affect a connection's communication quality. Ensure your device is properly installed within line-of-sight of a Thread or is equipped with a functioning cellular microchip. Yellow and Orange stripes mean the Thread is connected but with bad communication quality during that timeframe.
