This article acts as a walkthrough for the demo leak detection dashboard. Included is an explanation of the scenario and how to use the provided demo sensors in the context of this dashboard.
This scenario is used to show a possible use case for MobiusFlow in the context of leak detection. This leak could come in the form of a simple water leak in a commercial plumbing application or a chemical leak in an industrial application. The dashboard is used to display the leak status and notify the user if a leak is detected and the subsequent actions which have been taken to rectify the problem.
In a real-world situation, dedicated sensors would be used such as the ones described in the table below.
EnOcean Mechanical Water Sensor
EnOcean Wireless Zone Valve Actuator
|Allows for automatic and immediate supply shut off.|
Upon navigating to the leak detection dashboard the following pane is presented.
This shows that currently; no leak has been detected, the water supply valve is open, there is no detected water, and there are no notifications.
Triggering the Leak
To trigger the leak, simply hold down any of the buttons on the demo switch included in the demo kit. The switch is used to simulate the detected water leak. The result is shown in the following screenshot.
Explanation of Result
As can be seen from the screenshot above, the leak has now been detected and the user is alerted.
As explained in the scenario overview section of this article, a typical system would be used with a wirelessly controllable valve actuator. The dashboard is showing that this valve has successfully closed the water supply.
Finally, the notifications show that an email has been sent to the maintenance team to allow for a timely fix to the leak. Setting up instant email alerts relating to any situation or combination of situations can be performed easily and simply within MobiusFlow.
