Sensor Setup

Temeda’s Binary sensor detection and reporting is configured to quickly and easily report the state of critical assets and support components in your fleet.

Sensor Enablement Process

  1. Customer requests a sensor set in their account
  2. Temeda Operations configures the back-end systems to support the sensor request
  3. An installer connects the sensors
  4. We recommend that the Installer document the following data:
    1. Sensor Type
    2. System Name
    3. System Description
    4. Inactive State Name
    5. Inactive State Description
    6. Active State Name
    7. Active State Description
      • For example, if using a sensor that detects if a trailer door is open or closed:
        • Sensor Type: Binary
        • System Name: “Trailer Door”
        • System Description: “Trailer Door”
        • Inactive State Name: “Closed”,
        • Inactive State Description: “Trailer Door is closed”
        • Active State Name: “Open”
        • Active State Description: “Trailer Door is open”
  5. The data is sent to Temeda, so we can complete the sensor enablement process.
