We’ve added amazing, interactive graphing and charting into / Valarm Tools Cloud.

You’ll learn in this write-up how to use these graphs and charts to better understand and work with your remote sensor monitoring info!

tools-valarm-net-industrial-iot-remote-monitoring-sensor-telemetry-interactive-graphing-charting-valarm-tools-cloud-sensors-3With interactive graphs on, you’ve got beautiful visualizations, quick overview analytics, and detection of outliers, hotspots, plus other anomalies and cool tools for your remote sensor telemetry data.

You can quickly get going with interactive charting and graphing by clicking the Device Manager tab after you’ve logged into your account. Click the name of your sensor hub device you want to graph, then click the Interactive Charts button on the left. The Interactive Charts button is highlighted and circled red in the Valarm Tools Cloud screenshot above.

tools-valarm-net-industrial-iot-remote-monitoring-sensor-telemetry-interactive-graphing-charting-valarm-tools-cloud-sensors-2Before your interactive charting adventure you’ll need to set up Custom Sensor Field Renaming / Aliasing by following these here instructions if you haven’t already done it. Select your sensor field renaming set in the drop-down menu. You’ll notice that in these examples we’re using sample air quality sensor data from Alphasense OPC-N2 Optical Particle Counter sensors that measure dust and particulate matter like PM1, PM2.5, and PM10. Your organization can get the Industrial IoT sensor hardware you’ll need at and send us a note at if you’ve ever got any questions.

tools-valarm-net-industrial-iot-remote-monitoring-sensor-telemetry-interactive-graphing-charting-valarm-tools-cloud-sensors-9There’s no need for you to be timid, scared, nor afraid to click around and experiment in your Interactive Charting and Graphing window! The features are pretty self-explanatory. Click the radio buttons and types of graphs to change the different options. You’ll see towards the top left that there are 4 main types of graphs / charts you can select, choose your favorites:

  • Area Charts
  • Bar Charts
  • Line Graphs
  • Scatter Plots

Valarm Industrial IoT Remote Monitoring Sensor Telemetry Air Quality Boxes for California Government AQMD SCAQMD IIoT application real world life customer storiesYou’ll see below some of the basic features and configurations you can change. It’ll get you started and familiar so you can experiment on your own to discover what suits your tastes the most today.

In the photo you see what the AQMD + Valarm air quality monitoring units look like that gathered the air quality sensor measurements used for the example charts and graphs in this story! You’ll see lots of graphs and charts of measurements from Alphasense OPC-N2 sensors monitoring of PM1, PM2.5, PM10 pollution and air quality.



Your standard issue line graphing. Mouse over any of your sensors to get the exact measurement values at that time stamp.



Area charting / graphing. Drag and drop your sensors in different orders to change them. Here we’ve dragged PM10 / orange to the bottom and PM1 / green to the top while leaving PM2.5 / blue in the middle sandwiched between.



Mouse over the name of 1 of your sensors to highlight just that sensor like the PM2.5 air quality sensor you see in blue in this example.



Click the name of 1 of your Industrial IoT / IIoT sensors to graph / chart just that sensor like the PM2.5 air quality sensor in this sample screenshot.

You can adjust the exact range / time interval of sensor data you’re looking at with any interactive charts. Use the force of your mouse clicking and dragging on the sliders you see the arrows pointing at.



Smooth moves in your sensor data measurements with the adjustment dial under smoothing. It’s highlighted with a bright red oval in this screenshot. Works well with all of your interactive graphs and charts!



Stack those bar charts.



Change your smoothing with bar charts.



Adjust your focused time interval range with bar charts.



And change your smoothing with area and any other charts and graphs to get a quick, general idea of trends in your sensor monitoring.
