N4 Floor Plan/Occupancy Zone View


Overview


The Floor Plan Zoning Template allows you to add polygon shapes over your existing images and display point values. As an admin or super-user create polygons with ord references or link to other plans. When you log on as a non-admin user the image is displayed with clickable polygon areas. Set up to 3 different colors with values for min, optimal, and max. Shapes change colour in real-time. Add the occupancy icon which binds to a station boolean point to show if the area is occupied. This template also includes Scheduling View, Energy View, PX View, Alarm View and a Free Weather Service which can be used on any project. Also check out our widgets.

How to Use

1. Copy Files to Station Directory


After downloading all the files, copy all files to an accessible station directory. E.g. Create a folder named SchedulingTemplate.

2. Add Licensing Service


Templates must be licensed, but you manage your own licenses. Licenses are bound to the stations host Id. You will be provided access to the Software and Licensing Portal where you can manage your own licenses. Here you can add, update, or delete licenses as needed.

There are few ways to get a license file:

1. Add our licensing module to your station services. This module automatically retrieves the license from our servers and saves it to your stations shared folder directory.

2. Alternatively, Login to the Software and Licensing Portal (link provided in Order Confirmation) and add your host id's as needed. Copy the license file to the stations shared directory.

Make sure the station user has access to WLicenseService in the user management and category service section.

Finally, in the service properties make sure the Enable Template Support option is set to true.

Verify you are always using the latest version of the licensing service. You can check and download the latest version from the Software Portal.

3. Setup other Views


This template also includes Scheduling View, Energy View, PX View, Alarm View and a Free Weather Service which can be used on any project. Refer to each of the product pages above to set up other views.

4. Toolbox


When you log on as a super-user or admin, a toolbox is available to set up polygons, ords, etc. When logging on as a normal user, the toolbox does NOT show.

5. Set the Background Image


Click on the image icon to add background image. NOTE: The image must be in an accessible station folder.

NOTE: we offer a 2d to 3d image conversion service at a very small cost. Please Contact Us us for a quote.

6. Add Lines, Rectangles, or Polygons


Using the tools place lines, rectangles, or polygons in the areas required.

7. Edit Shape Properties


You can point to a value ord reference or to other plans as required.

Continue to create and edit shapes. When complete, click the Save icon to save the configuration. Save often. As an admin click on Lock Icon to preview the graphic.

8. Add Occupancy


Use the toolbox to add occupancy icons.

Object should be bound to a boolean. When the value changes to true, the color changes accordingly in real-time.

Use ANY svg icon you wish. Just change the view setting to add your own SVG in the correct format.

Optional (Hyperlink Widget)


The FREE Hyperlink Widget is included in this template allows you to navigate to a station ord, hyperlink, or external hyperlink. If you set the Ord binding, then the ord value is displayed as the link, which updates in real-time.

Alternatively, set the hyperlink text value and this value will be displayed as the link. When combined with our dashboard templates, your PX pages can easily navigate to other dashboard links.

This widget can be used for any px page on any project. The standard Niagara widgets don't allow this level of flexilibity for navigation.
