Create A Dashboard

Hey guys, id like to setup a new dashboard with a cad drawing of a restaurant kitchen and have widgets placed on top of the equipment with the sensor state. Door open/closed, temp etc.

I am assuming that this can be done in just not sure how.


Hi @dburtonbds,

You could use a compose widget, I’m suggesting this widget to you because I believe that it will attend all your needs.
I’m sending the compose documentation below:

Please, let me know if it helped you! :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks, where i get lost is where they say to put the x and y coordinates in the variables metadata. Where do i find the metadata?

Hi @dburtonbds,
You can send the metadata using the device emulator or by adding the metadata into your analysis…
Usually, to do the tests I always use the device emulator, you just need to select your device and go to Emulator tab, as you can see in the example below:


difference between COMPOSE and IMAGE MARKER ?
thank you

Hi @max.patissier,

That was a good question!

Compose: The compose widget gives developers the ability to build widgets that display real-time video streams of their environment and add real-time information to those streams.

Image Marker: The Layer widget gives you the ability to build great dashboards by overlaying your image with the data from the buckets in real-time. You have two choices: an Image Marker or a Heat Map.

With the Image Marker, you can place pin markers above the selected image. You can manipulate the colors, values, and icons of each pin.

I hope this helps you!
