Exploring Device Data

To view all the data messages sent from a single device to UnaConnect, or to edit/update the configuration and information of a single device:
  1. On the left navigation bar, click on the Devices tab, and the Devices page is displayed.
  2. In the All Devices section, click on the device name that you want to view or edit, you will land in the Device Data & Configuration page for the individual device with several tabs on the top of the page to display different data types sent from the device. The default tab is the Sensor Data tab.
  3. To view the data in the time of interest, you can click on the Relative Time from now section and click on the relative time buttons to load the data for the selected times.
  4. You may also toggle the Auto Refresh (1min) to auto refresh for the latest data, or click on the refresh button anytime to manually trigger a refresh for the latest data.
  5. Another option to see the data in the time of interest is to click on the Time Range section, select the from and to dates then click the Submit button to load the data for the selected times.

The Sensor Data tab is the main tab that displays all the messages containing raw data that have been sent from the device. The messages are transmitted over Sigfox, LTE-M or NB-IoT networks to the UnaConnect platform. UnaConnect then aggregates and translates the raw data (in a format defined by the device payload) into variables and values. For example: timestamp and motion detection data of a motion sensor.
In the Graph section:
  1. Click on the Metrics dropdown menu to select the data types that you want to visualize.
  2. Enter the Tick Total value to change the scale of the horizontal axis.
  3. If you want to replace null value by other values, click on the Null Data checkbox and enter the value to replace null.
In the Device data section:
  1. The table displays the timestamp of each message, the data contained in each message that have been processed or translated by UnaConnect, and the raw data in the message sent from the device.
  2. The data and raw messages are based on the different device types, modes and events that triggered each of the messages to be sent from the device.
  3. Click on the Export button to export a CSV file of all the sensor data messages sent from the device.

The Event Data tab displays all the messages containing descriptions of the events that are device-related such as downlink messages, downlink acknowledgement messages, Sigfox network error messages along with the timestamp of these events.
In the Events data section, the table displays the timestamp of each message, the type of event message such as downlink, downlink acknowledgement or network error messages etc., and the data contained in the message as processed or translated by UnaConnect.

The Location Data tab displays all the messages containing the coordinates (latitude, longitude and the radius of precision) for the location of the device with its timestamps. The location data is based on the applicable network such as Sigfox and is only available for devices with the network capabilities.
The Location data section displays the timestamp of each message with the latitude, longitude and radius of precision (in meters) of the location data. You may click on the messages to see the location of the device visually on the Location Map when it sent the message.
The Location Map section visually displays the locations corresponding to each of the messages.
  1. Click on the Show Path checkbox to visually see a projected path between the markers tracking the location of the device along with the message sent.
  2. Click on the Precision slider to change the filter by the range of precision that is applied to the location data of the messages.
  3. You may click on the markers on the map to view a pop up with latitude, longitude and radius of precision information, the corresponding message in the Location data section will also be highlighted.

The Telemetry Data tab displays the messages containing the quality of the signal measured by the number of Sigfox network base stations that received the messages, the RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) for each message and the radio configuration zone. The telemetry data is based on the Sigfox network and is only available if Sigfox data-advanced callback is set up for Sigfox network devices.
In the Graph section:
  1. Click on the Metrics dropdown menu to select if you want to visualize signal score, number of base stations or average RSSI.
  2. Enter the Tick Total value to change the scale of the horizontal axis.
In the Signal data section:
  1. The table displays the timestamp of each message, the signal score, average RSSI, number of Sigfox base stations and the radio configuration for each message sent from the device.
  2. The data and raw messages are based on the different device types, modes and events that triggered each of the messages to be sent from the device.
Please refer to the Signal Score section for more information.
