Site Management app

A Site is the geographical area where a Silvanet network of sensors and gateways are deployed to monitor the forest. Dryad developed the Site Management app (dryad.app) that displays all Sites that Dryad has created and administered for you. You use it to plan deployments of devices for a Silvanet Site and to monitor the status of the sensors in the site.

Info

Sites are currently added by Dryad internal Admins. In the future, a Site Admin will be allocated to specific users who will be able to create sites for clients and to create users.

dryad.app is connected to the Silvanet Cloud which receives data from the sensors via Mesh Gateways and Border Gateways. This data is then displayed in the Site Management app.

For example, if a sensor detects a smoldering fire, the app displays Fire Alert warnings which identify the location of the sensor(s) that detected the fire.

Note

We recommend registered users view the Site Management app on a regular basis to monitor the activity and data from the Silvanet Network.

The Site Management dashboard provides access to three view options: a Sites view, a Maps view and a Devices view.

Sites view

The Sites View displays all Sites that a user has rights to administer and manage. Clicking the name of a Site opens the Site Dashboard.

Site View

Site View

The Site dashboard allows a user to drill down and view the current readings from a sensor, including Air Pressure, Temperature, Humidity and Air Quality. It also shows the current charge of the sensor battery.

Maps view

The Map View provides a convenient view for selecting sites. If many sites are managed, this allows for a quick selection of the site based on a map location.

Map view

The Map view also provides an overlay of temperatures sourced from Google Maps which shows areas of higher levels of fire risk.

Device view

The Device View provides a quick search function to find specific sensors or gateways using the device ID. Searches can be filtered by device or by site.

Clicking a sensor displays in a sidebar the current data from the sensor. You can select a data time range showing values over 5, 7, 12 or a 24 hour timescale.
