Website – Organisation

Now we have a working controller we need a better user interface to enable us to add sensors, modify zones and perform all of the configuration. The hub website uses Google Charts for graphs, and also employs an Org Chart for the Organisation interface. This is more touch-friendly than a table.

Use the following command to fetch the files required for this feature:

wget -nH --cut-dirs=4 --reject "index.html*" -P /var/www/html/ -i /var/www/html/manifest2.txt

Unlike the controller, the website will dynamically update, so you should be able to login, choose the Organisation menu option and view the Zones, Sensors, etc.

At this point, you may want to create a new temperature sensor and restore the virtual sensor that we hijacked for testing. Within the edit forms there is a Duplicate button for all organisation objects, so it is very easy to clone sensors, actuators, etc.

While we are doing some administration,  we can setup some sensor alerts. This is described in the next post.
