This chapter contains information about Sensors. Sensor is a device that pushes data into the twinzo system.
In this manual, we will go through the sensor usage basics and how to work with the sensors in twinzo system.
After a successful login and clicking on the sensor tab, you will see the main sensor screen. Here you can find all the sensors that you added earlier, or a blank page if you did not add any sensors till now.
As you can see, there are no sensors added, so we are going to show you how to add one.
Creating new sensor
Click on the + button in the right menu panel. A new sensor menu window will pop up.
As you can see there are two main setting tabs for the sensor such as:
Sensor and Account.
In the Sensor tab you will find:
Name of the sensor
In this column you can write any name of the sensor.
Mac address is 00:00:00:00:00:00 by default and there is no need to change it. If you have some specific mac address you can just rewrite it any time you need to.
Sector is a place where the sensor will be located. These are the floors of the company.
Areas are specific locations on the floor. You need to select an area where the sensor is located. If you do not have any areas you can leave this column blank.
Version is a program that belongs to the specific sensor type. It chooses how the sensor will work and what type of data it will be sending. You should know what version of the sensor you will be using. If you do not know, what version will you use, contact your supervisor.
Is a column where you can add some additional description or info for the sensor.
In the Account tab you will find:
Login name & Password
Here you need to fill up the name and password for the sensor so it can login into the twinzo system. It is important because when a sensor wants to send some data to our twinzo system he needs to login. Without login the sensor can not send any data. You can choose your own password or just generate one by clicking on the lock user button.
Now we can create a new sensor by filling up the blank spaces with our configuration.
