What is a location in the GlacierGrid Dashboard?

A "location" in GlacierGrid refers to any building or facility where you have equipment or spaces intended for monitoring with our solution. These locations are used as a means to further categorize and sort your equipment, ensuring that you can manage your monitoring solution efficiently and effectively.

How to Add a Location

Adding a location to your GlacierGrid account is a simple process, whether you're using the GlacierGrid App or the GlacierGrid Web Dashboard. Below are step-by-step instructions for both methods:

GlacierGrid App:

  1. Launch the GlacierGrid App on your mobile device. You will start on the "Equipment Tab."
  2. Look for the "+ plus" icon located at the top of your screen. Tap on it.
  3. From the options presented, choose "Add Location." This will initiate the location creation process.
  4. Enter the name of the facility or building where the equipment is located and include the building's address.
  5. After entering the necessary information, click "Next".
  6. You will then need to select who should be notified about all device connectivity and battery issues at this location. You can choose either a pre-existing Team, or specific user(s) as recipients to those alerts. 
  7. Customize the amount of time for the "Hub Offline" alert to trigger. If you select 2 hours, when our system has not received data from your hub for 2 hours, then the alert will trigger. We recommend 4 hours. 
  8. Click "save". 

GlacierGrid Web Dashboard: 

  1. Open a web browser on your computer or mobile device and log in to your GlacierGrid Web Dashboard account.
  2. Click on the "Equipment Tab" to access your equipment settings.
  3. Select the prominent pink "Add Location" button at the top-right corner of your screen. 
  4. Provide the name of the facility or building and its address in the fields provided.
  5. Click "Save" to add the location to your account.

Why are locations important? 

Locations play a pivotal role in ensuring that your temperature and humidity monitoring solution is well-organized and easy to manage. By categorizing your equipment by location, you can:

  • Efficiently Manage Equipment: Easily locate and manage equipment across multiple facilities or buildings.
  • Streamline Monitoring: Grouping equipment by location simplifies the monitoring process, allowing you to focus on specific areas as needed.
  • Quickly Respond to Issues: When an issue arises in a particular facility, you can pinpoint it swiftly, minimizing downtime and potential temperature or humidity-related problems.
