The Main Page
The Pelican Web-App is your birds eye view into the active temperatures and HVAC equipment statuses through-out a commercial facility. It allows for real-time adjustments over all aspects of the indoor climate and their related systems. As shown below, the Main Page of your app is sectioned by color coordinated buttons for quick and easy navigation.
The viewable parts of the app automatically adjusts based on the Access Rights you have within the solution. Navigating these different section of the app are further explored through-out this Help guide.

Rooms are grouped in the 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 statuses , select one of the groups. To get to a room’s climate control page, click the room you want to make adjustments too.
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 Office1 instead of just Office1. 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.

The Schedule Dashboard is segmented into three primary sections:
- Manage Shared Schedules provides an area where you can create schedules that are shareable between multiple room thermostats.
- Manage Thermostat Schedules allows you to view current room schedules and/or apply shareable schedules to room thermostats or manage their individual customer schedules.

- Climate Issues notifications are designed to identify mechanical issues and help you proactively identify where and when they occurred. These notifications are never an indication of a problem with your Pelican Solution. They are simply used to identify potential mechanical problems.
This Admin area provides access to all the administrative configurations for your Pelican Solution. The Admin Menu can be accessed by selecting the Admin icon in the upper right hand corner of the Main Page or by selecting the dark blue button labeled Admin at the bottom of the Main Page.
