Managing your i-Senses:

Monitors and Monitor Groups

Each i-Sense monitor is uniquely identified by the serial number printed on its label, and may also be given a name that can easily identify it. Each monitor is registered by a site user to their own account, and is initially administered by and visible to that user account. Once the number of monitors in your account becomes large enough, maintenance can be difficult. This is where Monitor Groups come in.

Monitor Groups typically contain multiple monitors. A Monitor Group can be shared by zero or more Users and zero or more User Groups (for more information on User Groups, see this page). When this is done, each User or User Group will share all monitors in the Monitor Group. Furthermore, all monitors in the Monitor Group will be shared the same way, either read-only or read/write.

For example, you may want a Monitor Group for each plant location and put all monitors at a location in the associated Monitor Group. You may want to create a Monitor Group for each function, like putting all monitors wired to refrigeration units in one Monitor Group, all monitors wired to assembly lines in another Monitor Group. They can be edited at any time to incorporate any changes that take place.

A monitor can below to zero, one, or many Monitor Groups, so you can divide access control up as finely as you like.

Monitor Groups can be used in conjunction with User Groups and Permissions to build a complex system that is easy to maintain.
