Allowing Sensors to Update Meter Readings by Linking a Meter to the Sensor

Facility managers can link meters to sensors. Once linked, FacilityBot will automatically update meter readings based on sensor data.

Linking Meters to Sensors

  • Log in to FacilityBot Manager Portal. 
  • Go to Settings then Sensors. 
  • Click on the “+ New” button on the upper right.
  • A floating editing panel will appear. Enter the sensor name and trigger condition. 
  • Click on Add Meter to link the sensor to a meter.
  • Once done, click Ok. 

Sending Test Data

We can send test data to simulate the automation. 

  • Mouse over on the sensor and click on Send Test Data.
  • Send attest data using JSON format.
  • FacilityBot will log the changes and automatically update the meter reading. 

Viewing Updated Meter Readings

To view the new meter reading,

  • Go to Features then Meters. 
  • Hover on the meter and click on the New Meter Reading Icon. 
  • The meter reading history will be updated with the new meter reading from the sensor.
