Editing a Zone's Sensors

To edit a Zone's Sensors:

1.Click on the Sites radio button.


Click on the View Data icon on the relevant Site's Dashboard icon. See Figure 664 below:

Edit Mode Window


By default, the Edit Mode window for the Zone at the top of the left-hand menu is displayed.

To display another Zone's Edit Mode window, click on the entry for the required Zone in the left-hand menu. For an example. See Figure 674 below:

Change Zone2


Note:Edit Mode is only available if you have the correct access Permissions.
If you do not have the correct access Permissions, the following message window will be displayed. See Figure 675 below:

ii.In the left-hand list, click on the required Sensor's icon, i.e.: Sensor Icon.


In table in the Zone's Edit Mode window, click on the required Sensor's name in the Sensor Name column. See Figure 677 below:

Edit Mode Window for Sensor

5.Edit the displayed details as required:

The Editable Details are:

Sensor Name

Here you can type a name for the Sensor that means something in relation to either the type of measurement that the Sensor is making or the location, for example, RH/T Room 1 or Room 1.

For this example we are going to call our Sensor, 'RH/T Room 1'.

Hardware Serial No

This is the Transmitter's Serial Number and can be found on the back of the transmitter.
You can either:
Enter the Serial Number in the dialog box in the following format: 0113-00001
Enter a 0 (zero).
If a 0 (zero) is entered, the Serial Number will be filled in automatically by the EMS Management Application when the Sensor is synchronised. For details see Document: IM6000 EMS Remote Management Tool User Guide.

Control Device Group:

The Control Device Group is the wireless receiving device that will receive the data from the transmitters.

The Control Device Group is selected from the drop-down menu.

oSelect the Control Device Group which corresponds to the Site and is compatible with the wireless transmitters used at that Site.

oFor more details see the Adding Control Devices section.

oFor this example, we are going to select Hanwell.

Physical ID

This is the Unique Sensor ID, it can be in the range 1 to 255.

For this example we are going to select Sensor 1.

If the Physical ID is already used by another Sensor, the System will suggest the next available ID.

Logging Interval (Mins)

The time, in minutes, between the Sensor's Logging/Parameter Sampling events.

Send Interval

For certain Families of Sensor (for example iSense) this Value sets the interval between times when logged data is sent to the Hanwell Remote Data Service.

CAUTION:Changing the Send Interval and Internal Logging Interval (Mins) values in EMS (Edit Mode) for an iSense Unit will flush any unsent data from the iSense Unit’s memory.

The Optional Details are:


This is the measurement Units for each of the channels for the Sensor/Transmitter.

These cannot be changed here as they are set by the Sensor/Transmitter install.

Sensor Out of Service

This feature allows you to temporally take a Sensor out of service. This is useful if the Sensor/Transmitter is measuring something that is turned off for a period and monitoring is not required.

It avoids alarms being generated while the Sensor/Transmitter is not required.

Out of Service Sensors are displayed with blue text in the Live View.

Has Digital Input

Checking this box registers that at least one of the Sensor's channels monitors a digital signal.


Second Location

The Location and Second Location fields allow you to put notes against the Sensor to assist with physically locating the Sensor/Transmitter within a building.

These are aide-mémoires only, serve no operational function within the software and are not mandatory.

Sensor Property functionality is accessed by clicking on the relevant panes at the bottom of the Edit Mode window. See Figure 679 below (Click on the relevant image to navigate to information on the parameters for each Sensor Property):

6.Once you are happy with the details click on the Save button to save the Sensor's edited details.

Click on the Back button to cancel editing the Sensor's details.

The Sensor's details are updated and you are returned to the Zone's Edit Mode window.

A green dialog box is displayed in the Edit Mode window confirming that the Sensor has been updated successfully. See Figure 680 below:
