Best practices, tips & tricks, troubleshooting, and how to replace batteries

Using filters and saved views

Use filters on the Pulsa dashboard to find and view your sensors with ease.

  • Filter your products by selecting Tags, product type, location, sensor, status, capability and current level.
  • Filters can be used individually or layered to create desired search results.
  • Tags: filters by your organization's available Tags
  • Product: filters by available product types within company
  • Location: filters by locations within company
  • Sensor: filters sensors by Pulsa's 4 sensor types:
    • differential, pressure, industrial scale, and weight tile
  • Status: filters sensor's connectivity status:
    • Connected: connected to gateway and sending readings
    • Missing: not currently seen by gateway & not sending readings
    • Disconnected: not connected to a gateway & not sending readings
    • Requires configuration:
  • Capability: filters by ability to be shared or edited within company members
  • Current level: will filter all sensors within selected range of sensor product level
  • Selected filters will appear above search results. Remove or add more filters from any search result.

Search bar and advanced search options

  • Enter search options with quotation marks for exact searches
    • Ex: enter "Exact" for results that explicitly contain the word "Exact"
  • Enter search options without quotations for approximate or related to matches
  • Type a forward slash into search bar to view advanced search options
    • use "and" to search for sensors that match both/all search requests
