View Floor Plan

All devices such as sensors, gateways, switches in the system are either commissioned or uncommissioned. A device“from the factory” starts in the uncommissioned state. As a part of the installation, it is commissioned. When commissioned, it will be placed on a floor, and an icon for the device will be shown on the floor plan. 

The floor plan displays the location of devices such as sensors, gateways, plugloads, switches on the floor with icons to locate them. Note that the gateway and all sensors bound to that gateway must be on the same floor. The icons for sensors change color depending on the attribute being shown.
