Learn how to add a new Sensor to OneVue or update its assigned network with the OneVue Wired Device Configurator (OWDC) app.
Watch the short training video.
The following details what's required to configure a new sensor with the OWDC app.
Android device requirements
Android OS version 4.4 or later.
Support USB Host or USB OTG mode. To verify USB support, check with the Android device manufacturer.
Minimum 25% battery life remaining.
Connection cable (not supplied)
The cable connects the Primex device to your Android device and also provides the power source to the Primex device during configuration.
During configuration, the Sensor is assigned to an existing Network Profile.
From the OWDC app, you cannot create a new Network Profile. Before you begin, from OneVue verify a Network Profile exists or create a new Network Profile. From OneVue, go to Devices > Networks. To create a new network, from the bottom section select +New.
For a Non-DHCP network, during configuration you will be required to provide the device's static IP address.
OWDC cannot be used with devices that require EAP-TLS certificates for network authentication or any type of network certificate. Devices requiring this type of authentication must be configured through Device Preconfiguration, and when the devices arrive onsite the certificates are required to be uploaded to the devices using the Primex Device Configuration software. The devices will then be able to successfully authenticate to the facility's network and check-in to OneVue.
What is the sensor monitoring?
Its assigned Monitored Asset. You can create a new Monitored Asset or if assigning to an existing Monitored asset you can enter the exact name as it appears in OneVue.
OneVue Business Unit assigned to the Sensor and its assigned Monitored Asset. From the app, you cannot create a new Business Unit.
Normal Condition (Range)
The Normal Condition (range) is the expected, normal operating condition of the Monitored Asset and is dependent on sensor type.
Temperature: low to high range in Fahrenheit or Celsius.
Humidity: low to high range in RH.
Differential Pressure: Positive or Negative pressure and either the Minimum or Maximum INH20 or PASCAL.
Water Leak: Normal Condition is always set to Dry and cannot be changed.
Contact Closure: Normal Condition is always set to Closed and cannot be changed.
From your Android device, open the OWDC app.
Enter your OneVue username and password (required to be assigned to the Account Admin Role).
Remove AC power from the sensor device. During the next step, it receives power from its connection to your Android device. If battery power is enabled, leave this on.
Set the Sensor into configuration mode > connect the sensor to your Android device using a USB OTG or a USB C cable (dependent on your device).
App displays "Add Device" and its LCD displays "Con", which indicates it's in configuration mode.
To assign or update its network > select a Network Type > select an available Network > and select Next.
Configure or edit its primary settings. For a dual type sensor, this step appears twice.
What are you monitoring?: either enter a new Monitored Asset or if assigning an existing Monitored Asset enter its exact name as it appears in OneVue.
Business Unit: select an existing Business Unit. If you edit the current assigned Business Unit, the Business Unit assigned to the sensor and Monitored Asset are both updated.
Range (Normal Condition ): enter the expected normal condition for what the sensor is monitoring (Monitored Asset).
The app configures the Sensor and displays its configuration status.
Do not remove the connection between the Sensor and your Android device until prompted.
When the Disconnect Device message appears, remove the wired connection between the Sensor and your Android device and reapply AC power to the sensor.
Once disconnected, the app verifies the device successfully checked-in to OneVue. If after 15 minutes it does not check-in, the app displays a status message.
Temp Sensor only: its LCD may display "Err" due to a no probe connection. To clear the error state and reset the Lo/Hi Collection Period, insert a probe into the sensor jack and press and release the sensor Alarm Silence button .
All sensor models: if a firmware update is available, it may also take time to download firmware (Sensor LCD displays UP).
You can now configure additional devices or close the app when you’re done.
