How do I navigate the main page?

NEED TO ADD ALL THE LINKS!

The Main Page

What is viewable on your app automatically adjusts based on the Access Rights, type of devices, and the way your Pelican devices were organized. Below is a representation of a common Pelican App’s Main Screen:

Groups/Rooms/Thermostats

Rooms are grouped in your Pelican app to help you quickly navigate through a building or a multi-building campus. Rooms will be grouped by floor, tenant names, building names, or similar and the default group is Climate Control. Groups are displayed as dark gray buttons on the Main Page of the app.

To view individual room/thermostat statuses, select one of the groups. 

All the different room information on a group page:

Room names are displayed on the far left side in alphabetical and numerical order.

To adjust any of these items: Navigate to the Thermostat Configuration section of your app by selecting Admin > Thermostat Configuration > and then selecting the Thermostat you want to adjust.

Note: You CANNOT hurt your Pelican solution by re-organizing your room thermostats. Go for it, we designed it so you can make these adjustments with ease.

If rooms are not named correctly: Rename the thermostat by changing the name next to the Name Field. There is a limit to the length of the name, so think of something short and sweet.

If rooms are not organized correctly: You can simply change the thermostat’s name so they re-organize. Or, if the issue is similar to this example, “Office 1 is showing up below Office 101, then adjust Office 1 thermostat’s name by adding a second space before the number 1. For example, name the thermostat Office[][]1 instead of just Office[]1. This will force it to show up above Office 101 on the Group page. []=space.

Note: Thermostats will always be listed in numerical and alphabetical order.

If rooms are not grouped correctly: Either create a new group or select the correct group for the thermostat through the Group Drop-Down Field. If you are creating a new group, there is a limit to the length of the group name, so think of something short and sweet.

In small text below a room’s name, additional descriptive information, such as the HVAC unit number, will be shown.

If a room’s description is incomplete or not showing up at all, this can easily be changed.

Navigate to the Thermostats Configuration section of your app by selecting Admin > Thermostat Configuration > and selecting the Thermostat you want to add a description too.

To add or adjust the description, just type the information you would like to store under the Description field.

Note: The app will only display the first line and a short portion of your description, while the description field will hold a lot of good information. Make sure the information you want displayed on the Group section of your app is at the top of your Description field and is short and sweet.

Real-time room temperatures will be displayed to the far right side of the room name.

Room thermostat operational state, such as heat running, cool running, fan running, waiting, or system off, will be displayed to the left of the Room Temperature.

To the right room’s current temperature readings and, for some thermostats, their relative humidity level and/or carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration levels will be displayed.

 To learn more about Relative Humidity (RH) levels, click here.

To learn more about Carbon Dioxide (CO2) concentration levels, click here.

Rooms with door/window or occupancy sensor accessories will display those sensor’s statuses in small text under the descriptions.

If your site has electrical equipment being managed by your Pelican solution, these will also show up under Groups.

Schedule Dashboard

The Schedule Dashboard provides a convenient area to manage all normal schedules and special event schedules for all your thermostats. The dashboard is accessed by selecting the blue button labeled Schedule Dashboard on the Main Page of your app.

The Schedule Dashboard is segmented into three primary sections:

Provides an area where you can create “sharable” schedules that can then be added to multiple thermostats.

This section provides you with current thermostat schedules settings and lets you set the thermostat to follow its own custom schedule, follow a shared schedules, or have no schedule at all.

This button, in the upper right hand corner, will open a calendar screen. This calendar lets you see your thermostat’s normal schedules and provides the ability to set Special Event schedules to rooms.

Notifications

Notification are only viewable if you have active notifications. Access a notification by selecting the orange button labeled Alarm Notifications on the Main Page of your app.

There are two types of notifications:

A new device notification is in Grey and identify when a new Pelican device that has been installed at your site and needs to be configured.

A climate issue notification is in bright orange and are designed to provide you with notices when a mechanical issues has been detected by your Pelican solution. These notifications are designed to help you proactively solve a climate related issue that might get worse over time.

These notifications are never an indication of a problem with your Pelican Solution. They are simply used to identify potential HVAC related mechanical problems.

Usage Graphs

Usage Graph show historical cooling and heating run-time information and can also display calculated energy consumption and electric cost. Usage Graphs are accessed by selecting the green button labeled Usage Graphs on the Main Page of your app.
