Dashboards: There are no limits the number of dashboards you may create. Most dashboards represent locations. However, some users have broken-down dashboards to represent a specific group of appliances. This means the system is incredibly flexible. You may also create dashboards that are private (on a login credential basis) or create dashboards that can be viewed by your entire team.

Panels: Next, each dashboard will contain at least (1) panel. A panel is designed to host widgets that display an appliance or device's status. Panels are used to separate views based on gauge or graph style data sets. There are no limits to how many widgets a panel may hold. Panels will resize themselves and their corresponding widgets based on screen size.

Widgets: Accordingly, widgets display the current status of your monitored appliances and/or devices. They are separated into two main groups are are controlled by the selected panel type. The two types of widgets are gauges and graphs. Gauges are used to show current status as graphs are designed to display historic views of their assigned appliance and/or device. 

There are (5) types of gauges:

  1. Round: Designed for various measurement type sensors
  2. Linear: Designed for various measurement type sensors
  3. Digital: Primarily used for on/off devices
  4. Consumption: Only used for monitored (hand soap) products
  5. Text: Designed for various measurement type sensors.
