Welcome to the January 2023 release of Kurloo. There are many incredible new features and updates in this version that we hope you’ll like, some of the key highlights include:
The distance to ground helps to monitor vertical displacement in centimeters level. You can switch the data representation using the classic chart control bar. The distance to ground can be compared by rainfall data. As the way you are already familiar, the data can be modified by adding offsets and removals if you encountered a case where the pole is extended or a device replacement. The distance to ground data can even be exported along with your other displacement readings for further investigation.
In the Distance to ground tab, you can observe:
- Device registered level (dRL): The altitude captured by the geosystem in each Kurloo device. This indicates the height of the device above sea level by default.
- Ground registered level (gRL): The “Device registered level” minus “distance to ground” that was captured by our built-in ultra-sonic sensor in each Kurloo device. This value indicates the ground level above the sea level.
- Plate registered level (pRL): The Device registered level minus pole height provided by users. This value represents the base plate level above the sea level.
- Soil height (sH): The Ground registered level minus plate registered level. This value tells the height of the covered soil above the plate.
To apply offset and removal, you can check from the Node detail > Expand the “Data removals” or “Offset adjustments” section > Click the “Edit” button. For offset adjustment, you can find the new “Pole length” available when adding a new offset.
Note1: You need to provide the initial pole height to enable this function. To set up, please click Node details on the right side of the information block > click Edit > Initial pole height. The unit is in meters
Note2: The data removals will apply to both “displacement readings” and “distance to ground readings”.
Daily device status
Understanding and tracking your device’s health status is extremely useful and beneficial. Some peculiar readings can be caused by severe weather or other potential events on sites. Except for precaution purposes, the device status can be a valuable resource to gain insights as well. Therefore, Kuloo provides a dashboard that summarises each device’s status each day. We provide an intuitive way to help you evaluate the ideal status of the device as well as its current state. The daily device status allows users to trace back the historical data in a line chart to understand the trends and the environmental changes on your site.
You can now open the daily device status dashboard by clicking the “Daily status average” tab on the Node detail page. To view the historical data, simply click the “Trend” button on the top right corner of each status card.
Note: the daily device status is a summary of each particular day, this does not represent the device status in real-time.
Advanced Node and Analysis
Number of days enabled
We are now providing a whole new way to interpret your favorite monitoring data. You can change the timeline measurement in X-axis from date to “Number of days enabled”. This function is applied to both Node and Analysis and is extremely helpful to compare the readings with how many days each Node is installed. To change the timeline measurement, please click the configuration button (gear icon) > select a preferred X-axis measurement unit.
The export function now includes the readings of the reference station to the base station when exporting a default format.
Powerful chart and table
Based on our constant research on the User experience, the Chart is one of the most commonly used functions in Kurloo Nest. The chart now brings a new feature, zooming, which can greatly save you time. From this Release, you can zoom in/out on the Node detail chart as well as the Analysis detail chart by scrolling the mouse over it. This new feature is applied on both the date and Number of day-enabled views. By doing so, the date range will be updated accordingly. You can reset the chart to its default setting by hitting the reset button.
Our clients love the directional vector that indicates the 2D displacement direction in map view. Thus, we have decided to implement this extraordinary feature in other commonly used maps including the Dashboard page and Node detail page. Other cool updates such as:
- Flexibility: There is a new toggleable option to display the directional vector on the map widget of the Dashboard view.
- Readability: We have also optimised the directional vector color to keep it clear and readable on the satellite view.
- User-friendly: Instead of double-clicking, the map now can display the Node name label just by the hovering mouse over the selected Node.
- Powerful selector: We are now improve the map that be able to auto-focus on the toggled group.
Better email notification
We constantly improve user experience, and this time we take this approach even further to optimise the information in our email notifications. This includes:
1. Node name: The name of each Node in the email is now displayed in the customised names, we encourage every user to set up their preferred and descriptive Node name.
2. Ongoing triggers: The system now can track the ongoing triggered Nodes and will push notifications based on the emerging outbreaks. This means you will be notified through email only if any ongoing breaches are triggered.
Styles and User experience
We are dedicated to improving the user experience of our platform, Kurloo Nest. This means you may find some styling upgrades that help you to focus on your task, easily search for items, or switch between functions.
We have fixed some of the bugs from the reported issues.
