Lesson: Adding a sensor

We’re changing our user interface. Some info may not yet be up to date. Please check From classic to new UI.

In this lesson you’ll learn how to view sensors and add new ones.

  1. Go to the menu Infrastructure > Device list.
  2. Select the device you want to view or edit.
  3. On the Sensors tab all sensors that currently exist for the device are listed. In the list you can turn the sensors on or off using the Active switch, change the order of the sensors (the sensor in the first row is the primary sensor, and always shows up in data summaries), and edit a sensor by clicking on the sensor’s name.
  4. Add a new sensor to the device by clicking Add sensor at the top right of the screen. You can choose from a wide range of different sensors, depending on the type of your device. Select a type and click Add sensor.
  5. On the Default settings tab, fill in the sensor information. Just like a device, a sensor has a description and short code. Other settings, like the sample and storage frequency are set here as well.
  6. On the Warning and error levels tab you have to set threshold values for triggering a warning or an error. Most sensor types allow you to set different values for warning levels and error levels.
