Silvanet Site Management app
Plan Site deployments and monitor sensor data using the Silvanet Site Management app.
The Site Management app runs in a browser (Google Chrome recommended) to build Packets and monitor the deployed devices. When one or more sensors detect a fire, the Site Management app displays Fire Alerts for users to take decisive action to put out fires. It provides different views to access Site information:
A Site is the geographical area where a network of Silvanet sensors and gateways are deployed to monitor the forest. The Site Management app (dryad.app) displays all Sites that Dryad has created and administered for you. Using your username and password, you are granted access to all Sites to which you are registered.
Access the Site Management app
Accessing the Site Management app requires a user to be registered with Dryad. After registration, a user is provided with login credentials. After logging in, the user is required to change their password.
This section assumes you have been registered with Dryad and have access rights to the Site Management app. Contact Dryad if you have not received your access credentials.
Ensure you are a registered user with Dryad and have the required user credentials.
Go to dryad.app, then select Login.
In the form that is displayed, enter your username and password provided to you by Dryad, then select Sign In.
If this is your first log in, you are required to change your password. You cannot change your username.
Enter a new password in the Update Password form, then select Submit.
The Dashboard Overview appears.
Change User Settings
You can change the unit system, data format and time format used in the Site Management app.
In any view, hover over the login name on the upper right corner of the app to reveal a menu, then select Settings.
Change settings as required.
Select the Dryad logo to return to the Dashboard Overview.
Edit Site name
The name of a Site can be changed as required. However, the Site ID cannot be changed.
The Site ID can be found in the URL of the Site as well as in the breadcrumbs line when a Site is opened.
From the Site Management homepage, select the Site ellipsis menu, then select Edit.
In the Edit Name field, rename the Site.
Select Submit. The new name appears in the Site Dashboard and Dashboard Overview.
The Dashboard overview is the default view of the Site Management app. All sites that you have access to are displayed on this page.
The Dashboard Overview displays key details of the Sites belonging to a client.
Total Sensors: Number of sensors deployed by the client and the number of sensors deployed per site. Site names are access points to the Site Dashboard of each site.
Total Gateways: Number of gateways (Mesh and Border) deployed by the organization and the number of gateways deployed per Site. Site names are access points to the Site Dashboard of each site.
Total Number of Sites: Number of Silvanet Sites defined for a Client by Dryad and the covered area or size (in hectares) of each site. Site names are access points to the Site Dashboard of each site.
Selecting Collapse minimizes the side menu. Selecting the right arrows maximizes the side menu.
Sites view displays all Sites in your organization. Selecting a Site opens the Site in its own view - the Site Dashboard.
Open a Site by selecting a Site name or using the ellipsis menu, then selecting Open.
The Site Dashboard is the main access to a Site including the size of the covered area. It provides details for all deployed devices, status of each device and an embedded Map view. The Gateway and Sensor tabs list the devices installed in the Site.
Selecting a device displays the current readings from a sensor: Air Pressure (hPa), Temperature (°C), Humidity (%), Air Quality and the current Energy Level of the sensor superconductors (%).
Edit Device Information
Device information can be updated from the Sites view by selecting the Edit icon next to a sensor in the Sensors tab.
Only the fields in the Metadata and Location tabs are editable.
Device name: Device ID which is a user-readable version of the sensor ID.
Notes (editable): If a note was added during deployment, it appears here. Otherwise, a note can be added by making the field editable (Pencil icon).
- Latitude (editable) and Longitude (editable): GPS coordinates as set during deployment. If the device has been moved, the GPS coordinates can be updated in these fields.
Technical Information tab:
- Technical Info: Settings obtained from the device including sensor ID, EUI, LoRaWAN version, device address, firmware version and ML Model version.
Sensor data (Site view only)
- Displays sensor data based on the selected time range.
QR Code tab:
- Displays the QR Code used in the Silvanet Deployment App.
- If a photo was added during deployment, it is displayed here.
Selecting Map view uses Google Maps to display a Site. Status icons display at a glance the status of each device in a Site. If a client manages several sites, a user can quickly find the Sites based on a map location. Displaying a site shows at a glance the status of each deployed device.
Selecting a status icon displays a device's latest status, including GPS location and current energy level.
Selecting the Fire icon displays the Fire Risk overlay for a selected area sourced from Google Maps which shows areas of higher levels of fire risk.
The Device view provides a quick search function to find specific sensors or gateways. Sort by Device name, Site or Device Type. Choose from 10, 25 or 50 devices to display per page.
Three icons in the side bar display additional details about a device:
Checkmark: Indicates the device has been deployed.
Pencil icon: Allows you to edit metadata about a device, including changing a device's name and adding notes. It also allows you to manually update a device's location if it has been relocated. It's QR Code and technical information is also provided.
Map icon: Opens a Map view showing the device in its current location.
Edit device information
Access to Edit Device Information is also available in the Device view. Selecting the Pencil icon next to a sensor or gateway opens the Device edit dialog.
For details, see Device Information under Sites View above.
User Management View
You can search for existing users or invite new users to the Site Management platform using the User Management view of the Web app.
