Exporting sensor data from your iMonnit account

The following steps will guide you through the process of exporting your sensor data to a CSV file and help you understand the format of the data file.

Exporting Sensor Data.

  • Click on the sensor name in the “Sensor List” window.
  • Click the “Export” tab from the sensor data window.
  • Choose the information that you want to export.(You can export data for the viewed sensor, or choose to include data from all sensors in the sensor’s network or the entire account.)
  • Click the “Export Data” button.
  • The .csv file will be downloaded to your browsers default download directory. You can open thisfile in any spreadsheet editing program such as Microsoft® Excel.

Data File – Column (Field) Definitions

1. MessageID: Unique identifier of the message in our database.

2. Sensor ID: If multiple sensors are exported you can distinguish which reading was from which using this number even if the names for some reason are the same.

3. Date: The date the message was transmitted from the sensor.

4. Sensor: Name you have given the sensor to Identify it.

5. Signal Strength: Strength of communication signal between the sensor and the gateway, shown as percentage value.

6. Received Signal: the signal strength measured in RSSI (From Wikipedia: In telecommunications, Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) is a measurement of the power present in a received radio signal.) This is the number that is used to calculate the “Signal Strength” column which we show as a percentage. For certain engineers this column is more useful than the calculated percentage so we display both to fulfill all the needs of our users.

7. Sensor State: Binary field represented as an integer containing information about the state or the sensor when the message was transmitted. (See “Sensor State” information below).

8. Battery: Estimated life remaining of the battery.

9. Text: Data transformed and presented as it is shown in the monitoring portal.

10. Data: Raw data as it is stored from the sensor.

11. Alert: Boolean indicating if this reading triggered a notification to be sent from the system.

12. Voltage: actual voltage measured at the sensor battery used to calculate battery percentage, similar to Received Signal you can use one or the other or both if they help you.

13. Plot Value: Data presented with any transforms applied but without additional text labels.

14. GatewayID: The Identifier of the gateway that relayed the data from the sensor.

Sensor State (Explained)

The integer presented here is generated from a single byte of stored data. A byte consists of 8 bits of data that we read as Boolean (True (1)/False (0)) fields.

Sensor State Information

Using a temperature sensor as an example.

If the sensor is using factory calibrations the Calibrate Active field is set True (1) so the bit values are 00010000 and it is represented as 16.

If the sensor is outside the Min or Max threshold, the Aware State is set True (1) so the bit values are
00000010 and it is represented as 2.

If the customer has calibrated the sensor this field the Calibrate Active field is set False (0) AND the sensor is operating inside the Min and Max Thresholds, the bits look like 00000000 this is represented as 0.

If the sensor is using factory calibrations and it is outside the threshold the bit values are 00010010 and it is represented as 18 (16 + 2 because both the bit in the 16 value is set and the bit in the 2 value is set).

Note: These two are the only bits that typically observed outside of our testing procedures.

Using Wireless Sensors For Monitoring Heating and Cooling Systems

Heating and Cooling System Temperature Monitoring

Are you monitoring your Heating and Cooling systems for efficient operation and predictive maintenance? Do you know how often your HVAC system is running and if it is running within its correct specifications? Deviations from specified parameters if left unchecked, can cause expensive repairs and downtime.

Using Monnit WIT Wireless Sensors to remotely monitor your HVAC systems, allows you to maintain efficient operation and schedule maintenance or other actions to avoid the consequences of failure, before the failure occurs. Monnit wireless sensor systems can help you monitor equipment to help you detect issues before they become serious and costly. We recommend using Monnit’s wireless temperature sensors to monitor temperatures around your building and Monnit’s affordable wireless activity timer sensors to track and monitor the operation of your HVAC equipment.

Detect HVAC issues before costly failures occur with Monnit Wireless Sensors!
