We've been working hard over the last year and a half to completely rewrite the Senseware Engine for faster performance and new features. Stay tuned for more announcements on this subject soon!
You can now create a public page to display your Indoor Air Quality to tenants, parents, customers, etc.
Our New Analytics App has been released. Contact the Senseware team for a personalized demo.
Reports performances improved
We have completely revamped our Reports App to make it faster and more robust when reports contain a lot of data
If you are using csv reports, data will be automatically compressed to fit as an email attachment, or will be stored on the Senseware servers if the size is above 20MB
The charts on the pdf reports have been redesigned to match more closely what you see on your Dashboards
You can now manually run your report directly from your reports page
[Beta] Layouts released
You can now upload floor plans as a true .pdf or .svg and overlay your modules on one or multiple floors via the Layout tool for each Installation
You can now view how your modules connect to each other via the Layout view in the System Status. Toggle the view to see the usual System Status View
You can now add a Layout widget to your dashboard to see your data directly on your floor plans, and if any thresholds are met
Installation Summaries released
You can now see high level information about how much hardware is online/offline and how many data streams are active
You can now create your own reports and download them or automatically receive them via email.
Dashboards Feature Updates
1. Generate Dashboards
You can now automatically generate a new dashboard with widgets and charts based on all modules or data types from a single installation.
Generate a dashboard by module to create a separate category for each Node and the connected bridge and sensors. Generate a dashboard by data type to create a separate category for each data type that our system has pre-defined. If you're not sure which method works best for you, remember, you can always edit and move the widgets created in one category to a different category.
a. Select the installation you would like to create a dashboard in the 'Installation' drop-down menu
b. Click the 'Generate Dashboard' button
c. Select the organization the dashboard should be associated with, dashboard permissions, and whether you would like the data to be organized by data type or module
d. Click 'Submit' and you will have a fully-featured dashboard in seconds!
2. Generate Widgets in Dashboards
In addition to generating a new dashboard based on an installation, we've created a new feature where you can generate widgets based on modules from other installations onto an existing dashboard. This allows you to easily combine data from multiple installations into a single dashboard.
a. Select the dashboard you wish to update in the 'Dashboard' drop-down menu
b. Click the 'Generate' button to the upper right of the page
c. Select which installation you'd like to draw information from
d. Select how you would like the data organized (by data type or module).
e. Select the modules you would like to add data from. By default, the Bulk Generate tool will select all modules available in the installation, but you can unselect the modules you don't need
f. Click 'Add To Dashboard' and the new data will be added to the bottom of the existing dashboard in a new category
Additional Dashboard Improvements
We've also made some major improvements to the dashboard loading time, that will load more data into charts much faster

Thresholds are now editable in the Account Notifications

Controls App Release
Senseware’s Controls App is a centralized location to configure, set and monitor your controls using our Timer Control Bridge or Modbus Control Bridge.

Setting multiple schedules to easily and remotely toggle between normal hours and holiday hours
Creating conditional controls to trigger equipment based on Sensor environmental conditions
Grouping multiple points of control under one schedule
