Application Guide: LoRa Sensor Data to a Dashboard

Application Guide: LoRa Sensor Data to a Dashboard


This Appication Guide is intended to teach the complete process of getting wireless LoRa (RAW) sensor data to the dashboard (or influx/postgres) for visualization. 

Preparation

To complete this Application Guide you will need to be familliar with the following topics.  See the articles listed below to learn about the preparation requirements:
  1. Accessing Rubix Platform
  2. Navigating Rubix Platform
  3. Accessing Grafana Dashboards
  4. Navigating Grafana Dashboards
  5. Building Grafana Dashboards

Application Process Summary

  1. Droplet: Installation and Configuration / MicroEdge: Installation and Configuration - First we must have our LoRa sensors correctly configured.  Refer to the linked articles to ensure that your LoRa devices have been set up and installed correctly. 
  2. Rubix Platform: LoRa Network Configuration - The LoRa Network (in Rubix Platform UI) must be set up correctly to receive LoRa data packets from the LoRa sensors.  Refer to the linked article to ensure that your LoRa Network has been configured correctly.
  3. Adding and Editing Wireless LoRa Droplet Sensors / Rubix Platform: Adding and Editing Wireless Microedge Sensors - Next we need to add the LoRa sensors to the Rubix Platform. Refer to the linked article to ensure that your LoRa sensors have been added to Rubix Platform Correctly.
  4. Rubix Platform: Mapping LoRa Points to Rubix Points - Once we have the LoRa sensor data in Rubix Platform, we will need to transfer the values to Rubix Points which are used to store history data in the database. Refer to the linked article to ensure that your LoRa -> Rubix Point mapping is implemented correctly. 
  5. Configuring Database Histories - In order for the Rubix Points to store their history data in a database, the database information must be entered in the Rubix Point Server config.  Refer to the linked article to ensure that your database endpoint is configured correctly. 
  6. Visualizing Database Data in Grafana - Now that we have our sensor data stored in a database, we will work in Grafana to visualize this data.  Refer to the linked article to learn how to show the database data in Grafana.
