Do not proceed with the test until you have read this pre-test checklist.
Prepare deployment Packet
Build a deployment Packet for the test that includes the anticipated number of sensors and gateways.
Deploy Border Gateway
Deploy the Border Gateway at the location set in the Packet. Ensure it is deployed with a reliable power supply and ensure it has Internet connectivity via Ethernet or LTE-M mobile.
Deploy the sensors at the locations set in the Packet. Ensure the Device IDs (QR Codes) are scanned into the Deployment app.
Ensure the sensors are sending data to the Silvanet Network by viewing the Site in the Site Management app.
Once deployed, do not interact with sensors
Do not INTERACT with sensors before or during a test.
Allow 14 days for sensors to calibrate
Sensors must be calibrated at the deployed location for 14 days.
Prepare test fire material
Dry test fire material and store it indoors for at least 14 days. This can be done concurrently to the calibration period.
Notify Fire Department
Ensure the local Fire department has been informed of the test fire.
After the test, safely discard fire ashes
Remove burnt material before putting in new material. Ensure burnt material from any previous test fire has been thoroughly put out and no embers are hidden in the ashes as they can ignite other material.
If required, modify the test setup
When modifying the test, change only one element per test. For example, change the type of material burnt.
Wait one day before running additional tests
Wait 24 hours after making any changes to the test, such as new burning material or sensor spacing before running the next test.
