Each sensor has a unique profile where you can view and manage its monitoring and device gateway settings.
Device Preconfiguration (new order only)
Device Preconfiguration automates the configuration of Primex network devices for use with your OneVue account before they arrive at your facility - eliminating the need to manually configure a device onsite. Device Preconfiguration is completed after an order is placed with Primex and completed online from your OneVue account. Your OneVue account ID, the devices' assigned network and settings provided are configured into each device and the devices are labeled before they are shipped from Primex - it's an easy online process that allows devices to be ready for use when they arrive at your facility.
OWDC app (new order and post-install)
The OneVue Wired Device Configurator (OWDC) Android™ app provides the experience of managing Primex network devices locally at a device on a mobile platform. The app provides the flexibility and convenience to add new devices to OneVue and also view or edit a device's primary settings. Once you download the app from the Google Play™ store (it’s free!), you connect a Primex network device to your Android device and the app guides you through the entire process. It's a simple, easy process that provides onsite configuration.
Sensor Profile (post-install)
From the profile of a sensor you can view and manage its monitoring and device gateway settings.
Assigned Monitored Asset
A Monitored Asset is what a sensor is to monitor and each sensor is assigned to a Monitored Asset. OneVue links the sensor data to its assigned Monitored Asset.
Normal Condition (range)
The Normal Condition (range) is the expected, normal operating condition of the Monitored Asset and is dependent on sensor type.
For example, when monitoring temperature or humidity set to the lowest and highest acceptable range. When a reading is not within its Normal Condition, the Monitored Asset is set to a Warning state with an Out of Range status. When the last reading remains Out of Range for longer than the time period set in its Alarm Delay setting, the sensor and its Monitored Asset are set to an Alarm state with a status of Out of Range, Past Alarm Delay.
Probe Life (OneVue Probes with CertiTrak)
View the details of the CertiTrak probe serial number including its unique Calibration Date Report and details. Option to set its time interval that calibration testing is to be performed (Probe Re-Certification).
The Alarm Delay sets the amount of time OneVue delays setting the sensor and Monitored Asset to an Alarm state when in an Out of Range status. When it remains in an Out of Range for time period set in its Alarm Delay setting, the sensor and its Monitored Asset are set to an Alarm state with a status of Out of Range, Past Alarm Delay.
If the Alarm Delay setting is set to 0 (zero) an Out of Range status immediately results in an Alarm state with the status of Out of Range, Past Alarm Delay.
A state change allows a user assigned to an admin role to change the state of a sensor. Although OneVue monitors and manages the state of a sensor, this feature is designed to provide a function that allows a user to change the state of a sensor.
From a sensor profile, selecting the Gateway ID link opens its gateway profile.
Primary network assigned to the device. During its check-in sequence to OneVue, the device attempts to connect to this network first. If the connection fails, the device automatically attempts to connect to its alternate network.
This network serves as a backup network. When a device cannot establish a connection to its primary network, it automatically attempts to connect to its assigned alternate network.
A Monitored Asset's assigned sensor samples and logs a reading at the frequency set in its Logging Interval setting. All logged readings are then sent to OneVue at the frequency set the sensor's Check-in Interval frequency.
The Check-in Interval sets the frequency a sensor connects to the facility's network and sends its logged readings to OneVue. Also, during each check-in any pending setting updates are downloaded to the sensor.
The Unresponsive Timeout setting is designed to monitor the network connection and check-in frequency of a Primex device. It sets the maximum amount of time a Primex device can go without a check-in to OneVue. When this time limit is exceeded, the device is set to an Alarm state with an Unresponsive status.
Primex sensors have an audio alert that is activated when in a reading alarm state. The audio alert emits a series of beeps to notify surrounding staff of the reading alarm condition. By default, set to disabled.
Primex devices have internal programming, referred to as micro firmware that controls how it operates. Its internal radio component has firmware as well that controls how it communicates over a network, referred to as radio firmware. By default, firmware is set to update automatically, which is strongly recommended by Primex.
