Sensors view in ZENSIE

By clicking on the hamburger menu, and next, on the Sensors tab you’ll open the Sensors view.

At the Sensors view there is a list of all sensors and web checks created for an organization. At this view, you can:

How to change the name of a sensor

We recommend that you give your sensors some meaningful names. To change the name you’ll have to do the following:

  1. Go to Sensors view from the side bar.
  2. Click on a sensor.
  3. Go to Settings tab.
  4. Change the name of the sensor.
  5. Click SAVE

How to change the monitoring frequency

Did you know you can control when and how often your sensors collect data? We’ll explain both options below.

1. Monitoring Frequency

To change the frequency of the data collection, go to the Sensors view and click on a sensor. Go to Settings, and Advanced Settings.

The FREQUENCY field indicates how many times within an hour, a Gateway will request data from a sensor. The default value is 60 seconds, which means data are sent every minute.

Some common frequencies you can use:

  • every 5 minutes: change the frequency value to 300
  • every hour: change the frequency value to 3600
  • etc.

Currently, most of the sensor devices do not support monitoring frequency less than a minute. If you try to put the frequency of such a sensor device to less than 60, you will see a warning message.

2. Scheduled Monitoring

There might be situations in which you only would like to have data from Monday to Friday, for example. To schedule this monitoring we use CRON jobs. CRON is an expression that helps you specify the times and the days for collecting your data.

To create a CRON job, go to Sensors view, click on a sensor check and select the Settings tab. At the Advanced settings you will find the CRON field.

For example, if you want to collect data on weekdays (from Monday to Friday) and from 8:00am until 17:00 then you can use the following expression:

If you are not familiar with CRON expressions you can use on online CRON converter (for example here).

How to use tags in ZENSIE

Tags are used to group sensor checks together. You can use tags to filter your list of checks and find the ones you are looking for quicker and easier.

For example if you have sensors placed on meetings rooms you can make a tag and group all those sensor checks. Next time you want to find all sensors installed in meeting rooms, you just have to click the tag and filter the results.

Creating tags

To create a tag, go to the Checks view and click on “+Create tag”. Add a name for the tag and press ENTER.

Assigning tags to checks

To assign a tag to one or more checks:

Select the sensor checks you want to tag.

Click at the ADD TAGS, on the bottom and select the tag you want to add. Or add a tag in the bottom green field at once.

How to filter sensors in ZENSIE

To filter checks, go to the Sensors view.

At the side menu, you can filter checks using the Tags, the Locations, Type and/or Status.

For example, I want to see all the sensors from the first batch tag, located in Kwekerij Moors Asten, that are temperature sensors and are paused. As you can see, it’s easy to select each of these variables just by check marking the appropriate boxes.
