• Initial setup for Pressac EnOcean gateway
• An IBM Watson IoT account
Navigate to the IBM Watson IoT connection page by clicking “– IBM Watson IoT” in the Connections sub-menu on the Pressac EnOcean gateway web-interface.
Then change the IBM Watson connection from “OFF” to “ON”.
Once you have switched “ON” the connection, input the organisation ID, gateway type, gateway ID, authentication token and specify what data you want to include in your payload messages.
- Organisation ID – Organisation of the IBM Watson IoT account. This will be provided when you create a gateway on the IBM Watson IoT platform.
- Gateway type – Gateways are a specialised class of devices in which serve as an access point to the Watson IoT platform for other devices. You can create this on the IBM Watson IoT platform.
- Gateway ID – ID of the gateway you have created on the IBM Watson IoT platform.
- Authentication token – This token will be provided when you create your gateway on the IBM Watson IoT platform.
After inputting your connection details, select which data you would like to be included in the payload and click “Save”. The IBM Watson connection status will now change to “Connected”.
The data contained in the payload sent is optional. From here you can select the data you would like to include.
- Timestamp – The time the gateway received a message from a physical device.
- Device name – Name assigned to the physical device sending data to the gateway. This can be found in your device lists.
- Device ID – Device ID (device identification) associated with a physical device e.g. ‘01882050’. Device IDs can be found in your device lists.
- Device type – Type of EnOcean device as found on the devices page. e.g. CO2, temperature and humidity
- Gateway Name – Gateway name assigned in the System > General screen.
- Device location – Location of a device assigned on the edit device screen e.g. mainoffice.
- Device values – Values received by the gateway from a physical device such as temperature, humidity, current etc.
- Device value unit – Unit the device value is measured in if available e.g. °C
- Signal strength (dBm) – Signal strength between the device and gateway in dBm.
