v1.9.5 introduces a new data collector type, the Virtual Sensor. It is perfect for prototyping a design before real sensors are available. With this new feature, sensor data is read from a CSV file and collected by JEDI One at a specified interval as if it is coming from real sensors. The data from these virtual devices can then be visualized using dashboards, used to setup rules, trigger actions, alerts and messages, and stored in the local database.
Collector Name: Unique name for this collector
Collector Type: Select "Virtual Sensor"
Virtual Sensor Device ID: Unique Device ID name (name that will show up in rules, dashboards, etc. for this data source)
Send Data Every: enter the delay in seconds between sending each line of sensor data from the CSV file. Once the last line is sent, it starts over at the beginning of the file looping continously until the collector is disabled or deleted.
Import CSV File: Browse for file containing CSV sensor data (in format shown below). The contents of the file will be shown in the "CSV Data" window
