This article acts as a walkthrough for the EnOcean demo Server Room Monitoring 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 Server Room Monitoring or any other temperature, light, and humidity monitoring application.
In a typical server room, temperature and humidity are important factors in ensuring safe operation. As such, in this scenario temperature and humidity will be closely monitored to ensure a safe operating environment. If either of these factors drifts outside operating limits, the user will immediately receive an alert. The lighting level in the server room is also monitored to ensure the lights are not left on. If a high illumination level within the server room is detected, the user will receive a notification allowing the lights to be turned off therefore saving energy.
In a real-world situation, dedicated sensors would be used such as the ones described in the table below.
|Temperature & Humidity||
EnOcean Temperature and Humidity Sensor
|Separate lighting and humidity sensors could be used instead of a combined sensor.|
EnOcean Indoor Light Sensor
EnOcean DALI Smart Lighting System
|Not required in this scenario, only suggested if smart lighting is desired in a similar scenario.|
On navigating to the Server Room Monitoring dashboard the following pane is presented.
In the above screenshot, all factors are within operating limits and the lighting level is low enough to confirm the lights have not been left on. This is reflected by all factors showing 'Ok' in the notifications cluster. Moving the demo multi-sensor near a window or bright light source will likely trigger the dashboard to notify the user that the lights have been left on. This is shown in the screenshot below.
If the temperature or humidity goes outside of the preset high and low limits the dashboard will notify the user of the potentially dangerous operating state.
