Getting started with the Amatis Dashboard

After commissioning is complete and your Amatis lighting controls site is operational, you can set your Amatis Dashboard to monitor energy savings and system data.

Monitor occupancy rates, light levels, and temperature fluctuations. If baseline data is provided prior to adding lighting controls you can compare in total energy, dollars, C02, and percent savings.

 

Key features

Real-time data collection

The following data points are collected from Amatis system devices and can be added or removed from your dashboard graphs based on your preferences:

Data points Description
AH Timeout After hours occupancy mode
Baseline Watts The number of watts the connected load used to draw or would draw without controls
Baseline Wh daily energy consumption for comparison against actuals energy consumption
Current Measured current
DLH Enable Enabled daylight harvest
DLH Min Minimum daylight harvest level 
DLH Targ Daylight harvest target level
Energy Measured energy
Fault Device error
Humid Relative humidity in a location where sensor is placed
Light Light level
NH Timeout Normal hours occupancy mode 
Occ Enable Enabled occupancy 
Occupied If motion is detected by a sensor
Power* Measured power
Relay Open or closed
RSSI Relative Signal Strength Integrity
Sensor ID Sensor device ID
Temp Measured temperature in a location where sensor is placed
Voltage Measured voltage

*Lighting, drivers and sensor loads contribute to power/energy consumption reported in a data point*

 

Data graphing

  • The aggregated data is automatically graphed in various formats in the dashboard, or you can customize graphs as you like. The graphs can be used for both energy monitoring and troubleshooting your site.
  • Your data will be tracked from the moment your site's dashboard is setup and stored forever. After 90 days, your data will be consolidated into 4-hour increments to optimize your graphing. However, you can still graph immediate data as low as the minute frequency.

Prep

If you're ready to use the Amatis Dashboard, make sure to 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 access your Amatis Dashboard account, but your AMBR will not report any live system data to your dashboard while disconnected.

 

Baselining setup

The best way to see the impact of your new lighting controls system is to compare changes in total energy, dollars, C02 and percent savings. 

 

1. Prepare the following information to set up your baseline:

  • Baseline Watts - the number of watts the connected load used to draw or would draw without controls
  • Baseline Wh - daily energy consumption for comparison against actual energy consumption

The new wattage is also needed to establish a comparison.

  • If your fixtures are controlled by an Amatis Smart Driver, then you'll need to calculate the consumed energy based on the wattage of the fixture multiplied by the percentage output of the driver. This information will then be added to your device in the Amatis App to establish your baseline.

  • If your fixtures are controlled by an Amatis Advanced Load Controller (ALC), then new wattage and time will be provided by the ALC device, since the ALC measures power. 

 

2. Provide your baseline information to your Amatis representative. 

 

3. You will be notified when your baseline data has been uploaded to the Amatis Dashboard, along with confirmation that your site's Amatis system is reporting back data. Your Amatis Dashboard will be automatically populated with:

  • Lighting statistics
  • Controls savings
  • Lighting energy
  • Weather in your area

4. Customize your dashboard

By selecting the cog icon in the upper right of each dash quadrant, you can rearrange the your content.
