Gravio is built in a way that allows us to easily extend new sensor families. On the website https://www.gravio.com/product#Gravio-Rent you can see a range of hardware sensors Gravio supports off the shelf. If you require other sensors to be connected, please do not hesitate to get in touch via Slack or e-mail under support@gravio.com

As of today, we support two types of widely known sensor standards:

Installing Zigbee Drivers

In order to use the Zigbee devices, you need to either use the Gravio Hub or use the below depicted Gravio Zigbee USB receiver dongle with your PC/Mac that will run the Edge Server:

Installing the Zigbee Driver on your PC

After installing Gravio HubKit and inserting the USB receiver dongle in the PC, please install the dedicated driver software as follows:

  1. Start “GravioTools” from the Start menu
  2. GravioTools will be displayed in the Windows tray
  3. Right-Click GravioTools and select “Install Gravio receiver driver” from the menu
  4. Install the driver
  5. The receiver is now ready to connect to your sensors

Installing the Zigbee Driver on your Mac
  1. Please select “Install Gravio receiver driver” from Gravo Service menu.
  2. Press “Install” on the dialogue screen.
  3. The Gravio receiver driver installer will start. Please press “Continue” to install the driver.
  4. The receiver is now ready to connect to your sensors

Note: The EnOcean sensors do not require any additional driver as the EnOcean driver is built into the Gravio HubKit application. If you have Gravio HubKit and the EnOcean dongle connected, you are ready to connect to your sensors out of the box.

Adding Devices to the Layers

Now that you are ready to connect to the sensors, you need to bind the receiver(s) to the layers you want to receive the data to. In order to do this, start Gravio Studio for Mac or PC, connect to your Gravio HubKit and add an Area and a Layer:
