Detecting Disruptions

One of the key challenges in IoT is ensuring that data from sensors is consistently and reliably transmitted. With our latest enhancement, t6 now autonomously identifies when a sensor fails to send measurements for an extended period, promptly alerting users to potential disruptions.

With sensor failure detection, t6 continues to pave the way for innovation in the IoT landscape. Experience the future of connectivity!

How It Works

Powered by custom Flows parameters, t6 monitors the incoming sensor data and identifies any gaps in the stream. Whether due to technical glitches, device malfunctions, or other unforeseen issues, the system swiftly recognizes these lapses, triggering immediate notifications (push notifications).

Benefits for Users

Implementation and Customization

Sensor failure detection feature in t6 has been seamlessly implemented with user-friendly customization options. For users integrating this capability into their IoT setup, t6 has introduced a Time-To-Live (TTL) extra parameter within Flows.

Additionally, by adding a boolean attribute, dead_notification, users can effortlessly enable or disable notifications for sensor failures on a per-Flow basis. This flexibility empowers users to tailor the monitoring parameters precisely to their needs.

Moreover, to refine the notification experience and avoid potential notification overload, t6 offers an additional customization option. Users can set a dead_notification_interval parameter on a Flow, defining the periodicity of dead sensors notifications. This ensures that users receive timely alerts without being inundated, striking the right balance between vigilance and managing notification volume.

This level of customization not only enhances the adaptability of the feature but also ensures that users have granular control over the monitoring and notification process.
