SmartSense: Asset Management

This guide will assist you in understanding and managing assets as they relate to your SmartSense solution. An asset is a piece of equipment or an area being monitored that your sensor is attached to. The sensor monitors the asset's temperature to ensure that it is within the designated range.

When a sensor is attached to an asset or near an asset, it immediately begins reporting the temperature for that area. For example, to monitor a frozen food section of a grocery store a sensor would be attached inside the freezer. That freezer, its make and model, becomes the asset being monitored. Tags can be added to the asset for more specificity, such as "Ice Cream Freezer," "Walk-In Cooler," etc.

Here is some common terminology associated with asset management:

  • Asset: The area of equipment your sensor(s) are monitoring (ex. Freezer, Cooler, Compartment, Ambient Room, etc.)
  • Device: Refers to a sensor (B Sensor, Z Sensor, B Repeater, etc.) or gateway
  • Gateway: A device that transmits temperature or humidity data from the sensor to the SmartSense dashboard
  • Sensor: A device that takes asset temperature or humidity readings and passes them through the gateway
  • Excursion: Any temperature or humidity breach outside the designated range
  • Alarm: The designated threshold attached to an asset, which triggers a notification when breached (can be dependent on temperature, humidity, differential pressure, etc.)
  • Notification: A message sent to a designated individual via email, SMS text, or phone call to alert a user that an asset's alarm has been triggered
  • Tag: A label or keyword assigned to an asset (or assets) for the purpose of identifying and classifying
