Visualizing sensor data with ZENSIE heatmaps

January 11, 2018

At 30MHz, we’re always looking for new ways to make sensory data accessible, and easily applicable to our customers’ business contexts.  We provide customers with all the building blocks of a smart sensing network, out of the box. Team members of any technical skill level can deploy sensors, set up a private mesh network, and dive deep into sensory data on the ZENSIE dashboard. We’ve found that the best way to guarantee that we’re building the product our customers want and need is to keep them involved in our product roadmap. One of the results? The ZENSIE heat maps feature, which makes it easy to visualize sensor value concentrations in a tangible color-coded overview, spotting trends straight away.

“The heat map gives very interesting insights. For example, you immediately see the impact of uninsulated transport pipes on the climate of your greenhouse.” Eef Zwinkels – Technical Account Manager Royal Brinkman
