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.

This article describes the Floor Plan view in which you can set the size of icons or perform tasks that affect the visual appearance of the Floor plan. For information about the device icons and their statuses, refer to the articles Device Icons and Connectivity Status Icons.

To view the floor plan display,

  1. Click Facilities in the left panel.
  2. Select a Floor.
  3. Select the Floor Plan tab. The following screen is displayed.

Daylight groups provide a uniform dim level across a group of fixtures for improved aesthetics. The lights
are dimmed or brightened to achieve a uniform group light level in response to fluctuations in daylight.
Daylight groups aim to find the right balance between aesthetics, occupant comfort, and energy efficiency. 

To determine which fixtures already belong to a Daylight group,

  1. Click the Facilities tab, select a Floor from the left panel.
  2. Select the Floor Plan tab.
  3. Select the Daylight Group from the View option.

View Network Health

The Enlighted Manage provides visibility into the network infrastructure's performance and health to help identify opportunities to improve network performance. Refer to the following articles for scheduling and running a network test.

This article explains how to view the network health results.

Viewing Network Health

Network health continuously monitors the network to measure connectivity based on messages that the Manage continuously sends and receives. You can view the following network health metrics of devices from the floor plan of a facility.

  1. Transaction Fail Rate – Percentage of transactions that fail between the sensor and the Manage. A transaction fail rate lower than 30% is unlikely to result in failed transactions. For substantially higher than 30% transaction failure, contact Enlighted Support to address the high rate.
  2. Transaction Effort – Number of attempts to send a message divided by the number of transactions. For example, a Transaction Effort = 1 means that every attempt succeeded. A Transaction Effort = 3 means that on average, it took three attempts to complete a transaction.
  3. Data Loss Rate – The percentage of packets that sensors attempted to send to Enlighted Manage was never received.

To view network health metrics,

  1. Select a floor in the facilities left panel.
  2. Click the Floor Plan tab.
  3. Select Network in the view drop-down. A couple of network-related drop-down lists appear next to the Network drop-down list.
  4. In the Diagnostics drop-down, select Network Health.
  5. Select the metric in the Metric drop-down list.
  6. To be more specific in your search, select a Gateway from the dropdown.
  7. Choose a date from the calendar.
  8. Check the Show values checkbox to display values on the floor plan.

Network_health_2.png

The floor plan displays a colored view of the sensors showing the metrics below each sensor. The legend to the right identifies the values for easy reference. Hovering over a sensor brings up sensor details, including the corresponding metric value, as shown below for the sensor.

View Area Occupancy

An area is a grouping of sensors on a floor. By selecting and activating sensors in the area on the floor plan to be zone sensors, the sensors provide lighting-based occupancy information to Manage. See Activating Zone Sensors in the Area article. You can view lighting-based area occupancy status for all zone sensor activated areas on a floor level at any time.

To view area occupancy, in the Facilities left panel,

  1. Click on the floor name. On the floor plan display, underneath the Floor Plan tab, is a drop-down list labeled View.
  2. Select Fixture Area in the drop-down. The area occupancy view of all areas at the floor level is displayed.

An example of the area occupancy view is shown below.

EM_AGArea.jpg

Each area in the area occupancy view is marked with a distinctive color indicating area occupancy status:

  • Red – Area occupied
  • Green – Area unoccupied
  • Gray – Sensors are not reporting occupancy data. This may occur if all the sensors in the area are faulty or the sensors in the area are disabled.

View Occupancy Heatmap

The Heatmap provides a color map to show the relative amount of activity on a floor based on occupancy. The visualization makes it easy to identify areas on the floor that have the highest activity and areas on the floor that are not being used.

Heatmaps are generated by tracking occupants’ motion and activity in the area around each sensor. The sensors register activities such as moving hands while seated, waving hands, walking, or typing. The maps use different colors to represent different levels of activity as shown in the legend. Shades such as orange or red indicate a greater amount of activity compared to shades such as green or blue.

To view heatmap for a floor,

  1. In the Facilities left panel, click on the floor.
  2. On the floor plan display, underneath the Floor Plan tab, is a drop-down list labelled View. Select Occupancy Heatmap in the drop-down list.
  3. Select a start and end date. You can select a maximum range of 30 days in the calendar.
  4. Choose a start and end time.
  5. Click Apply to view the Occupancy Heatmap.

The Area dropdown list displays two options:

  • Assign Area – Selecting an area, causes the selected devices to become members of the area. A fixture may be a member of a single area, at most. Thus, for devices already a member of an area, this will first remove the devices before adding them as members to the selected area.
  • Unassign Area – Removes the selected devices from any area to which they are assigned.
SC_ConfigureGroups.png Create/Configure Groups – Results in a pop-up for configuring devices to be part of a group.
  • Create Motion Group – Configure devices to be a part of a motion group. 
  • Create Switch Group – Configure devices to be a part of a switch group.
  • Create Daylight Group – Configure sensors or fixtures to be part of a daylight group, so they respond to maintain a consistent light level based on available daylight. 
  • Configure Groups – Configure devices to be a part of a motion group and switch group. 
SC_ConfigureHopper.png Configure Hopper – Results in a pop-up for configuring the selected fixture to be configured as a hopper.
  • Enable Hopper – The selected fixture can broadcast messages to other fixtures in its range.
  • Disable Hopper – The selected fixture’s hopper function is de-selected.
SC_TW.png Configure Tunable White – Results in configuring the selected fixture for Tunable White. A tunable white fixture can vary the Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) from cool to warm white.
  • Enable Tunable White – The color temperature of the selected fixtures can be adjusted to the desired color tuning.
  • Disable Tunable White – Disables Tunable White function for the selected fixtures.

  • Run Throughput Test Now – Measures the maximum throughput that the network can support with a Packet Error Rate.
SC_Otheroption.png
  • Set Target Ambient Light Level – Results in setting the target ambient light level for daylight harvesting automatically or manually. The sensors dim the fixture to maintain an ambient light level reading at the set target ambient light. This is also used to calculate the group light level for sensors in a daylight group. You can set the threshold manually based on the selected sensors current ambient value that is displayed. Perform the automatic calibration at night and set the fixtures to a light level of 100% before clicking the Submit button.
  • Enable Emergency Fixture – This allows a fixture on the floor plan display to be identified as an emergency fixture.
  • Change Gateway – Change sensors to a different gateway.
