The free web-based device management console from Radio Bridge allows you to:
- Easily provision devices on various LoRaWAN networks
- Create charts and visualizations for your data
- Set up alerts and notifications
- Reconfigure sensors in the field
Radio Bridge provides a fully integrated device management console for the automatic provisioning,
monitoring, and configuration of sensors in the field. It also provides visualizations and advanced notification
features that allow for full sensor-to-cloud solutions.
The Data Visualization features allow you to create graphical charts and plot data over time.
All of the uplink sensor messages defined in the user guides are decoded in a human readable format, and with a push of a button can be converted to a graphic visualization.
You can also set up email or text message alerts when certain sensor events occur. In this way, the console along with the hardware devices can provide a full sensor to cloud solution for basic monitoring applications. Adding your own application on top of the console is easy through the APIs provided.
The Advanced Notifications features allow you to set up various conditions to receive alerts and notifications
Set up various scenarios and conditions under which you will receive notifications. Alerts can be sent via email or text message, and reconfigurable in the console anytime.
For example, you may want an alert if the measurement from, say, a temperature or voltage sensor falls above, below, or between two values. You may want to know if a door or dry contact sensor remains in a particular state for an extended period of time. You may want to know if the battery voltage drops below a certain point on an entire group of sensors. Radio Bridge has you covered in most scenarios, and we’re always adding logic to expand these capabilities.
Provisioning means activating the device so it can talk to the appropriate wireless network. Radio Bridge sensors can be activated for any supported network through the console.
For example, if you want to use a Radio Bridge sensor on a managed LoRaWAN network such as machineQ, Senet, Loriot, or others, simply add it to the Radio Bridge console and that device will be automatically provisioned on the network without any engagement between you and the network provider. That means you can start from scratch by purchasing a Radio Bridge sensor from one of our distributors, add it to the console, and immediately start receiving wireless messages on the console.
Radio Bridge sensors have configuration options that allow the user to modify the behavior and characteristics of the sensor. A new configuration can be sent through a downlink message over the wireless network to the device after it has been deployed in the field.
The console has an easy to use configuration section for each sensor that allows the user to graphically select a new configuration and queue it for a downlink. It also provides status so the user can confirm the downlink was received correctly.
Much like the uplink message decoding, all of the downlink parameters are defined in the user guides provided on each product page.
The Radio Bridge console can be used as a stand-alone end user application using the provisioning, monitoring, and configuration options described above, along with configurable email or text message notifications. Many customers choose to build the final end-user application “on top of” the console while still utilizing the features provided by the console itself. This is accomplished through the API feature which provides a simple RESTful interface for uplink sensor messages and downlink configuration.
For example, when a sensor sends an uplink message, a POST request is made to the user defined server which contains all of the parameters related to that sensor message including the raw payload, a human readable decode, signal strength, time stamp, etc. For an end-user application to create a new downlink configuration, a simple POST request is made to the console containing the downlink string. When the configuration is sent to the console, the downlink is queued and sent down to the sensor at the next opportunity.
