ZENSIE basic concepts


Here are some of the main concepts that will help you get to know your ZENSIE.

What is a Check in ZENSIE?
A check contains all the information needed for setting up a sensor and receiving data from it.

How do we define Organizations and Locations in ZENSIE?
Organizations can have multiple locations. This feature is helpful when you want to monitor different environments located in different areas. For example, if you monitor room occupancy and you have two buildings, you can create two locations under the same organization.

User roles in ZENSIE
There are three roles:

  • owners
  • editors
  • followers

Depending on the role the user has, several features (permissions) are available. For example, the owner of the organization can invite users. Editors and followers cannot invite users.

The ZENSIE side bar


The first part of the ZENSIE side bar provides access to the main functionality of the dashboard:

Explore: visualize data in a graph and compare different sensor values.

Notifications: see all the notifications in your organization and create new ones.
