Live Objects sensor, our Android application

This application provides support for technicians during the installation of sensors already provisioned in the Live Objects platform. You can :

  • find devices in Live Objects
  • edit devices information
  • validate reception of payload messages
  • assign a static location to a sensor
  • visualize the position of the sensor in relation to the technician position

Device management & campaigns

Now you can ask for a retry when you configure an acknowledgement on your commands (donwlinks) in order to increase success rate. This new functionality is available for all connectivity except SMS.

Also when sending a command, you get a warning message if a command is already pending.

Concerning campaigns, 2 new features :

  • when you download a CSV file with the results of a campaign, the name of that file includes the name of the exported campaign
  • you have also a new status for your campaigns. You had notStarted, pending, success, failure and canceled, welcome to inProgress ! It means that Live Objects has already started to send command(s) to the device

As a consequence when you make a soft cancel, Live Objects cancels the operations only on « pending » and NOT on « in progress ».

Secure MQTT connections

You can now use SSL certificates on your IP devices (fix or cellular). All you have to do is to import the CA Certificate of the authority you use to create your certificate.

To import it, go in Configuration/API keys/Certificates CA

Then associate that imported CA certificate to an API key used by your devices.

3 new widgets – “on/off”, statics and activity rate of your devices

Statistic widget enables to display the minimum, average, maximum or sum of the value of a group of devices (or 10 selected devices).

On off widget enables to follow a multi states value. For instance to display “open” or “close” if your device returns 1 or 0. You can define more than 2 states in order to display if a temperature is “OK”, “Too hot”, ‘hot” or “not sure”.
