Getting started with the Amatis App

The Amatis app allows you to easily interact with newly controlled devices, create virtual zones, and guides through the commissioning process. Commissioning a mesh network can begin after installing your devices and logging into the app. We’ve made our app as user-friendly as your favorite websites, allowing you to easily interact with your newly installed Amatis devices.

Note: this document is based on version 4.9 of the Amatis App.

Prep

If you're ready to use the Amatis App, make sure you confirm the following before moving forward:

1. You have completed the installation of an Amatis system at your site, which means you've installed your various fixtures, Advanced Load Controllers or Smart Drivers, sensors, and switches.

2. Confirm your network has power and the lights are on.

3. Your Amatis Border Router (AMBR) is plugged in, accessible through your buildings' Internet firewalls, and recognized in the Amatis app and dashboard.

Heads Up!
If AMBR is not fully connected to the internet with a blinking blue LED, you will still be able to register yourself as a user and create a site, but will not be able to enable any functionality on the connected devices.

Commission your site

Commissioning the mesh network can begin after installing your devices and logging into the app, in three basic steps.

Step 1: Create a location

Adding a new location, the area you want to establish as a new lighting control zone.

  • Select "Add your first location."
  • Choose a descriptive name for locations that can be easily understood by the next person who uses the app. Try to use room numbers, floor numbers, descriptions of the space, like office or conference room, or cardinal directions.
  • Choose "Room Type" to help categorize your location.


Step 2: Add devices to your location

  • Select “Click to add devices” to get started.
  • The Devices drawer will display on the screen. In the top list, you can see what devices were added to your AMBR network during the AMBR configuration process.
  • Start by referencing your floor plan to determine which devices should be added to your location, then select them from the list. You can either select them directly or use the search bar to find them by entering the last 4-digits of the unique wireless IDs on your floor plan. Once added the devices to your location, they will populate in the list below.
  • If you have a question about which device is in which location because it’s not clear on your plan, you can click on the light bulb icon to the right of its name, and the device will perform an on-off sequence.
  • Check the green checkmark to save the devices to your location.

 

Step 3: Customize location settings

Configure your location for functions like occupancy detection and daylight harvesting. This simple process can be used again and again as you add more locations to your site which can always be modified later.

  • You can access this drawer anytime by clicking the cog Cogs.png icon.

  • The drawer features a puzzle piece icon puzzle-piece.png that provides can choose to adopt existing room templates with pre-defined settings for various lighting controls strategies if they make sense for your space.

  • The drawer also features a copy Copy.png icon that allows you to save your own room templates with specific lighting controls settings for future use.

In order for settings in the Location Features drawer to take effect on your location's devices, you'll need to sync.
