This widget is a parameter widget.
It displays a gauge with the value of a determined parameter at a given frequency and period.
It also shows an indicator of the "position" of the data within a range of values configured, with a minimum and a maximum.
The range is displayed in colors: green, orange and red.
This widget is available for all types of dashboards.

Any parameter in the platform.

Available frequencies and periods

  • All frequencies available for each parameter in the platform can be selected
  • The periods are only to find the maximum of the range. If you select "Fixed maximum" this is not available. The periods that you can choose are:



  • To have available data of the parameter selected
  • Note that you have to select the frequency of the parameter. Ensure that you have data from that frequency when you select it.


To Setup this widget, you must have a Dashboard created beforehand.

1. Get into the dashboard and click on "New widget".
2. In the next screen select Gauge on the Parameters Widgets section (on the bottom).
3. Name the widget.
4. Select a parameter with the frequency desired.
5. This step is different depending on the dashboard type:

  • In Location dashboard: Select the specific device that you want to visualize.
  • In Template / Zone dashboard: Select the Reference device that you want to aggregate and visualize.

6. Define the minimum of the range of values that the data is going to be compared with.
7. Define if you want the maximum to be Auto or Fixed.

  • Fixed: Define the maximum of the range of values that the data is going to be compared with.
  • Auto: Select the period to find the maximum value of the data. Ex: selecting an hourly parameter and Last 24 hours period, the gauge will find the maximum value of that hourly parameter during the last 24 hours and it's going to paint it as the maximum.

8. Define if you want the thresholds of the gauge to be Default or Custom

  • Default: Is going to be defined by default by the gauge, taking into account the minimum and the maximum of the range
  • Custom: Define at what value the color of the indicator should turn orange and at what value it should turn red.
