|Is work being done on time? Are managers and supervisors dealing with issues? Are processes running within specification? Is equipment available and operating? Automated Monitoring has been designed with the requirements of regulated industries to keep auditable records of monitoring activities and associated data, in mind. Checkit provides dashboards to enable operational data to be understood, viewed and interrogated. Performance can be tracked by site, team and process, creating the visibility needed to track records and make sure you can intervene before small dips in performance turn into major issues.|
|You can extend the dashboards, combining Checkit data with that from other systems to link operational, financial or relationship data across systems for a true 360 degree view and to help identify which sites need attention before their next audit or inspection, which sites or types of appliance seem to have a problem with keeping storage temperature controlled, for example.|
The following basic reports are available.
- a basic log of all data recorded: the Automated Monitoring Report lists every reading returned from all or selected sensors for the specified time period. To access this report login to the Checkit Control Centre and select Reports, Monitoring, View and then modify the parameters available at the top of the page (date, type of sensor etc.) to see the data you want.
- a graphical presentation of sensor data: the Automated Monitoring Summary shows readings for selected types of sensor (temperature, humidity, contact (door open/closed)) in a graphical format over the selected time range. To access this report login to the Checkit Control Centre and select Reports, Monitoring Summary, View Sensors and then modify the parameters available at the top of the page to see the data you want.
- Automated Monitoring status: shows the current status of all your sensors and the most recent readings. To access this report login to the Control Center and select Automated Monitoring Status and then modify the parameters available at the top of the page to see the data you want.
- Alert status: shows any current Alerts issued by Checkit devices – that is, Alerts that have not yet been acknowledged or cleared following the alert being issued.
- Automated Monitoring devices: this shows you what equipment is being monitored and provides some data about each including its name (as identified to Checkit – ‘Freezer 2’, for example) the type of Checkit sensor being used to monitor it, its location, how often it reports (the temperature for example) and how long it waits before issuing a warning if it cannot communicate (Internet down, for example). To access this report login to the Control Center and select Automated Monitoring Devices and View/Edit – the page you open includes two tabs one which lists the Hubs and Repeaters installed and the other the sensors/equipment being monitored.
Advanced reporting is provided by the Operational Insights feature which uses Microsoft’s Operational Insight PowerBI platform to provide analysis of sensor data, alerts and the actions recorded against the alerts to provide insight into the performance of your monitoring effort. To access this report login to the Control Center and select Reports, Operational Insights. (Operational Insights is an optional additional feature not included in all installations by default.)
An API is also available to enable you to import Checkit data into your own Reporting systems so you can combine the data with other operational data to produce customised reports / analysis. To use the API (Application Programming Interface) you will need IT skills/resource. For further details about this (optional) feature please refer to API Reporting Reference . (The API is also an optional additional feature not included in all installations by default.)
