To detect problems like a broken light in a pool or unexpected lights in a server room, you can use luminance sampling. You create a trigger, review dashboards, and use search and alerts to review incidents.
Creating a Trigger
The sampling is triggered anytime an Even matches the query you associate with the trigger. For example, to sample luminance of the pool every 5 minutes only between 12am and 3am, your Trigger query would be:
pool every 5 minutes
For example, this is the trigger to sample both luminance and occupancy every 1 minute in the Server Room:
Review the trends over time with the dashboard:
Search & Alerts
You can search by the luminance of the overall scene and by individual zone in searches like these:
- luminance under 30 in pool
- luminance over 40 in server room
- luminance less than 33
Any query you pin becomes and alert.
