Get Fixture Dim Level by Floor

This API returns the 'current' dim level of fixtures on a floor. The API uses pagination with the ‘page’  query parameters to paginate through the items in a collection. Pagination reduces the overall payload size and increases the API performance.

The sensors in Manage are classified into the following four types; only emergency and fixtured sensors may have dim levels:

  1. Emergency sensors: Sensors designated as emergency fixtures in Manage 
  2. Desk sensors: Sensors designated as desk sensors 
  3. Fixtureless sensors: Sensors designed as fixtureless, including desk sensors
  4. Fixtured sensors: Sensors that are not designated as fixtureless; exclusive of 'fixtureless' and inclusive of ‘emergency’ sensors

    • returns ‘-1’ as dimlevel
  • 'fixtured' (only returns sensors that are not designated as fixtureless, completely exclusive of fixtureless, completely inclusive of ‘Emergency’).
