Adding and managing floors for Heatmaps (Location Analytics)


In order to use floors for Heatmaps, you must first go to the Locations section in the Admin Panel, select your location, go to the Floorplan tab and then click the Add button.

In this section, you can find a list of all the items that have been added. By clicking the Add button, you can add the following:
  • Building
  • Floor
  • Zone
You can drag and drop your building onto the map found at the right side of the page. To add a new building, you'll need to provide the following data:
  • Name
  • Address

By clicking the button next to an existing building, you can get details of the building or delete it from your floorplan section.

To add a new floor to an existing building, you'll need:

  • Name: name of the floor
  • Associated to: building that's associated with the floor
  • Floorplan width (meters): size of the floor
  • Floor hardware manufacturer ID: an identifier for your floor. In order to properly set this value, please check if your device is supported for Heatmaps
  • Image: upload an image of the floor. You are able to crop, resize, rotate, distort and change the opacity of your picture. Please note that accepted format files are PNG and JPG

By clicking the button near an existing floor, you can get details on the floor, enter the zone management section, or delete it from an existing building.

You can also add a new zone to an existing floor. For each zone, you can display access points, FogSenses, and beacons.

After the floor plan is updated, you must go to each Location section in the Admin Panel, select your location, go to the Access Points tab and then select each AP and Place it on the Floor Plan. By choosing the Place on Floor Plan button at the bottom will change the map view on the right to floor plan view and will let you position your AP.
