MQTT is here! 🚀

Shared by Mikael • January 30, 2024

A lot of use-cases require real-time data, yet exposing an integration end-point directly to the internet is not always an option. For example, in building control, strict and complicated local network setups typically rule out a push-based integration approach.

Hello, MQTT! 👋

Our new MQTT integration complements our existing webhook offering to enable industry-standard, pull-based, sensor data streaming for everyone. Because your cloud, or device, initiates the connection, the integration works even if you are behind a strict firewall or behind a router (NAT).

Test it out in the dashboard by navigating to Integrations —> MQTT, set up a new MQTT client and you’re good to go. You can now use any MQTT client library or plugin to consume your sensor data in real-time.

Please see our developer site for more information on how to MQTT SUBSCRIBE to your real-time data!

Keep devices and hubs online with our new status pages

If your devices or hubs are offline they can't provide any insights about your buildings. Our new status page helps you ensure that everything is online and working.

Get an overview of offline devices and hubs across all your buildings. To learn more about buildings with issues you can visit the detailed status page for each building.

This is both a useful tool to monitor ongoing installations until everything is online and working and to ensure that everything is up and running over time

Stay tuned for future improvements: We're working on surfacing connection issues as well as improved suggestions of why a device or hub might be online.

🥵 We know it has been a pain to update the display settings for your View devices one by one. No more!

You can now go to the device page in any building, select the "Configure devices" button at the top, and set your preferred display settings for all devices in the building. Your current display settings won't be affected until you make a change.

Look out for even more building level device configurations, coming soon!

Introducing Time over thresholds – get the insights that matter in seconds 🎉

Shared by Mikael • January 30, 2024

It can be a struggle to translate data into what really matters. That’s why we’re introducing a completely new way of analyzing the data from all devices in the building: aggregated time over selected thresholds.

With this, you can easily monitor trends, discover patterns and investigate exactly where and when air quality issues happened.

How it works

  • Go to any building in your account, and you will see CO2 is enabled by default.
  • Select additional sensors you want to monitor and select their threshold. These are saved and visible for any user who visits the same page.
  • See the trend over time or toggle to see devices sorted by severity.
  • View data from just one day to 31 days. Live data is available for the current date (updated hourly)

Currently available sensors are CO2, VOCs, PM 2.5, Temperature and Humidity - all with a range of threshold options. Stay tuned for future improvements, we are just getting started.

Shared by Mikael • January 30, 2024

It is now possible to configure the VOC sensor on Wave Plus devices. Disabling VOC will double the estimated battery life to up to 4 years with fresh lithium batteries.

You can easily configure all Wave Plus devices in a building by clicking "Configure devices" on the building Devices tab.

More improvements to device configuration options are in the pipeline, so stay tuned.
