Opening a Site

The first step in planning a deployment is to select a Site from the Site Management app.

A Site is a geographical area measured in Km2 that is monitored by Silvanet Sensors and connected to the Silvanet Cloud via Silvanet Mesh Gateway(s) and Border Gateway(s).

The Site Management app provides the following methods to view a Site:

  • Sites: Provides an overview of all Sites to which you have been given access rights
  • Maps: If your Sites are distributed over a wide geographical area, this view shows the location of each Site to which you have access rights.
  • Devices: Search for and select specific devices in all available Sites. However, this view is useful only after devices have been deployed to Sites.


For a detailed description of these views, see Site Management app.
