In the Devices tab, you manage the devices connected to a HubKit by adding, removing and configuring them, including their physical location.
In order to keep the data stores organised and efficient, Gravio features two dimensions how to place and assign sensors:
- The Areas
- The Layers
Adding Areas to the Server
Areas define a physical location, such as for example “3rd Floor West”, “Seminar Room”, “Entrance Area” etc.
Areas can have multiple Layers, which are used to group sensor information according to their functionalities, e.g. “Temperature Layer” or the “Camera Devices Layer”. All layers must contain the same sensor device types.
Adding an Area is easy, simply click on the “+” mark at top right and you can add a new Area.
We suggest you add a photo to identify the Layer easily in the future.
Adding Layers to the Areas
Next, let’s add a few layers to an area. Give the Layer a meaningful name …
… and choose the type of sensors the Layer should incorporate.
Depending on what device you choose, you have different options. Gravio supports:
- Physical Sensor Devices
- Software Sensors
- MQTT Subscriptions
