Description

Overview

Control4 BMS Monitor is a unique driver from Janus technology for monitoring thermostat data and providing a simple web interface for viewing this. The driver allows key parameters from any thermostat in your project to be monitored (current temperature, setpoint, HVAC mode and HVAC state). Additionally outside temperature is obtained from an Internet service, together with a temperature forecast for the rest of the day.

The solution supports any thermostat proxy, v1 or v2 – no special thermostat drivers are required. Furthermore, no additional devices/interfaces are required – all data is stored directly on the main controller, and backed up in persistent memory, so it is preserved across power cycles and even system restores. Up to 30 days’ data (or 10K samples) are stored for each of the monitored elements with simple navigation between daily and weekly views.

 

Webview Compatibility

The webview interface is compatible with any Control4 UI. This includes T3/T4 touchscreens, and the iOS and Android apps*.

You can also view the interface from any browser by navigating to the following URL, substituting in the IP address of your main processor;

http://<controller_ip>/driver/hvac_generic_bms_monitor/dist

iOS and Android apps require OS3.2+
