  • Application Best Practices – 0.5 hours (Alex)
  • Parking Lot Items / Open Discussion 0.5 hoursParts Recommended … we will have enough for the labs but if you have your own it might make more sense:

Parts Recommended … we will have enough for the labs but if you have your own it might make more sense:

  • WiFi / Ethernet Router
  • USB-Serial DB-9 adapter + null modem cable

Feature Requests

  • Better indication of network health / devices that could possibly go offline
    • Enhancements to XPA BRG routing table ...
    • statistics, % of dev Announce responses within last X hours
    • measure broadcast saturation level - average, peak, etc
    • "-1 hops" is confusing
      • XPA BRG, make this easier to identify
      • devices without routes, make this more clear
  • SV13.5 General
    • change link to XPA BRG (device properties) to go to home index page
    • enable wireless mode in nGWY2
    • add robustness to handle duplicate IDs from different XPA BRGs during migration process, etc.
    • better protection of XPA BRG associations - "admin light" ?
  • XPW Capabilities in SV
    • able to tell if DS is plugged into an XPA RL
    • time delay option for idle time until dim
    • reverse daylighting for entry way
    • more precision for daylight settings at low end
  • Standard work docs
    • How to set setpoints for daylighting
  • standardization
    • standardize IP settings of ACuity devices
    • standardize control settings, sequence of ops
    • coordinating major versions within nLight?
    • how to standardize between different product features etc, need process to align capabilities
      • ask Steve roe and Alex to write up backlog item to bring features up to parity
  • XPA BRG general
    • pull date/time from assigned nGWY2
    • display Firmware version on XPA BRG firmware version
    • get legacy firmware version in routing table
    • add show IP params to help show current IP settings
  • XPA BRG Associations Workflow
    • Automatic export of migration table
    • Improve import capability of migration table
    • Show true PAN in SensorView
    • Ability to label VPorts during Device Associations
    • Wipe routing table following migration
    • smarter import of "load from routing table"
  • Firmware Update process
    • bring this into SensorView
    • OAD statistics
  • Graphical upfront system design like ASD does
