New Pre-Planning Tool - Beta

We have released a Beta version of our new Pre-Planning tool in the Site Management app. This new feature allows you to estimate quickly and precisely the number of sensors and gateways needed to protect a desired area or asset. This new tool lets you enter paths and areas you want to protect and takes into account terrain elevation and line of sight prediction to help you place gateways and verify their mesh network coverage.

Introducing 3D Map

We have improved our Site Map feature with an immersive 3D capability. Using the Map tools, you can now observe your deployed devices on an elevated terrain by tilting and rotating the map to navigate through your site.

Note

3D capability is currently available only on deployed Sites. This feature is to be expanded to Site planning in future releases.

Improved User Management

We've heard your feedback and enhanced the User Management view. In this release we have introduced role-based user management:

  • Admin role: Admin users are responsible for team organization. Admins can invite new users, edit user information and independently create new sites.

  • Standard User role: Standard users have access to the platform, can view the User Management overview and update their name and contact details. They cannot edit other users' details or invite new users.

In addition, we've revamped the User Management view to allow contact details of individuals to be added and made visible to all users.

Site Creation

Users with an Admin role can now independently create new sites. While we are working on the ability to disable and delete existing sites, be mindful that creating too many sites generates clutter in the Dashboard Overview and may result in potential confusion in the workflow.

Gateway Connectivity Test

In this release we added a new feature in the Silvanet Deployment app that lets users check the connectivity of the gateways during the deployment.

Directly from the mobile app, you can now trigger a connectivity test on the gateway you are deploying and know immediately if the chosen location is suitable.

User Management

You now have the power to invite users to our platform independently. Simply provide their basic information, including their name and email address, and we will send them an invitation via email complete with a link to join our application.

User Management

User Management

With this initial release all users will have the same access level categorized as "Standard User." However, we're happy to share that more roles and permissions are on the horizon. In the upcoming release, you'll have the ability to organize your team(s) better using multiple access levels and also create and manage new sites independently. We are committed to delivering this improvement by the end of the year.

Improved packet assignment workflow

We also improved the way deployment packets work to give you more flexibility and autonomy on the field - Packets are no longer assigned to an individual user. This means easier access and collaboration for everyone.

Packet assignment

Packet assignment

Once a packet has been created, it is automatically accessible to all the users of the site. With our mobile app, you can browse through all the packets of your site and select the one you or your team will deploy.

Last minute change of plans? Simply go back on the mobile app and select an alternative packet for deployment.

Note

To access the latest features, open the Play Store on your Android device, search for our app Silvanet Deployment, and select Update to install the newest version.

Other minor fixes

Deployment Planning Map: The map is now centered around the device you are placing, providing a more intuitive experience.

Device Data Graph: The time frames of the graphs will no longer be fixed, offering clarity when observing the graphs for extended periods.

Fire Alerts: We've addressed multiple issues related to false alerts. This includes the implementation of an enhanced Machine Learning Model and improvements in how alerts are counted and visualized on the web application.
