How to create a new dashboard in ZENSIE


You can create different dashboard views and group checks together. For example, you can have a dashboard with all sensors monitoring meeting rooms, another one with all sensors monitoring parking spots, etc.

To create a new dashboard:

  1. Click on the plus icon, at the top right corner.
  2. Enter a name for the new dashboard.
  3. Click Create.

How to add a new widget to ZENSIE dashboards


To add a new widget to your dashboard:

  2. Select a widget type.

What is a single value widget?

Single value widgets show only one value from the selected sensor(s). You create a widget for a single check, or you can create a widget for multiple checks:

What is a chart widget?

Chart widgets contain graphs with multiple data points for a selected time frame. You can create a chart widget for a single check, or you can create a chart widget for multiple checks:

How to add single value widgets


To add a single value widget to your dashboard, first you have to select an aggregation method:

  • Show one sensor per widget: create one widget for every sensor you select.
  • Combine sensors and show one value: create one widget for multiple sensors.

Next, select the sensors you want to add to the widget(s), and click NEXT:

You can also adjust the widget by adding a title and selecting a time period. On the right side of the screen you can see a preview of the widget(s) that will be created.

How to add chart widgets


Chart widgets contain graphs with multiple data points for a selected time frame. First, you choose what type of chart you want to create:

  • Single charts: display individual graphs for every sensor you select.
  • Combine sensors in one widget: display data from multiple sensors in one graph.
  • Aggregate sensors in one widget: show aggregated data (eg. averages) of multiple sensors in one graph.

Single charts and Combined sensors

For single charts or combined sensors you can select the sensors you want to add to the widget(s), and click NEXT:

Next you can:

  • Change the title of the widget(s).
  • Select the time period of the graph. For example, if you want to display data of last week, select “Last 7 days”.
  • Select the interval size which indicates the frequency of the data. For example, if you want to see what happens on an hourly basis, select “per hour”. Or if you want to see daily data select “per day”.
  • Select the statistics you would like to see (averages, min, max or sums). The default selection is averages.

Aggregate sensors in one chart

For aggregated sensors you either

  • select the sensors one by one from the list,
  • or multiple sensors at once by using tags.

Note that in order to aggregate data from multiple sensors, the sensors must be of the same type. For example, all temperature sensors, or all presence sensors. You can’t create aggregations using different type sensors.

In the example above, we selected all sensors with the tag “Room climate”.

You can also select multiple tags. For example, “Room climate” , “First Floor”.

When you select more than two tags, you must also choose whether you want the sensors to belong to:

  • at least one of the tags (logical OR operator), or
  • in all of the tags (logical AND operator)

For example:

To create a graph using all sensors that show the “room climate” in the “first floor”, you need to select “All of the tags”.

To create a graph using all sensors from “first floor” and “second floor”, you need to select “At least one of the tags”.
