Avelon 7.11 Release Notes

Say hello to Avelon Cloud

We are proud to bring a fresh name to our products. As of today, Alcedo is called Avelon Cloud and the domain alcedo.ch becomes avelon.cloud. We have taken this step to unify our product family and to ensure a clear and consistent presence. Even though our product now has a new name and logo, the functionality of our applications will of course remain the same. Don’t worry, you don’t need to do anything, everything will be updated for you when you log into any of our apps.

Set up test alarms for IoT data points

For all data points on your IoT devices for which alarms have been previously created, you can now test these alarms to make sure they behave as they should. By raising test alarms, you can check whether alarm tickets are properly created and you can close the tickets either manually or let Avelon do that for you.

Close alarm tickets only after device acknowledgment

For watchdog alarms, alarm tickets can only be closed after the alarm is gone and the device sends an acknowledgment. This becomes a standard behavior of Avelon and prevents watchdog alarm tickets being accidentally closed even when device is still offline.

Access the user interface of your LORIX One LoRaWAN gateway

For any newly activated LORIX One gateway, Avelon allows you to easily access its user interface by using the link available on the device page and the credentials provided. What’s more, any changes you make to the name or location of the gateway in Avelon will be automatically synchronized with the device and the network provider (e.g. The Things Network).

Assign LoRaWAN Gateways to a Beetle

LoRaWAN Gateways can now be assigned to a Beetle. This is particularly useful when you have different protocols on your devices and need a unified communication that the Beetle can provide.

Merge data points

Whenever you replace a device with a new one, you can merge two or more data points of the same type, so all the data from the old device is added to the new one. What’s more, all assignments related to those data points, like records, alarms, charts and reports are also merged, so you don’t have to reconfigure them.

New IoT devices available

Wisely AllSense

A new all-inclusive device that monitors Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) in the surrounding space. It also comes with a presence sensor and a light sensor, measuring the intensity of light in the room.
