Recipe: How do you use EnOcean sensors with Watson IoT RTI to create TRIRIGA work tasks?


For example, let’s say that a new System Administrator joins the company and needs to inspect the server room. The System Admin presses the switch on the door of the server room. Based on the pressed action, an event is generated from the switch sensor, which is connected to the IBM Watson IoT Platform. The IBM Watson IoT Real-Time Insights (RTI) analytics server captures the event in real time and alerts the Facility Manager for the server room. Based on the validation, the Facility Manager provides server room access to the System Admin and closes the work task in IBM TRIRIGA.

Requirements

  • 1. EnOcean sensors.
  • 2. EnOcean smart gateway and software.
  • 3. IBM Watson IoT Platform and Real-Time Insights (RTI).
  • 4. TRIRIGA server (Version 10.5).

Preparation

  • 1. Set up the EnOcean sensor and configure it with the EnOcean smart gateway.
  • 2. Create the EnOcean sensors as the devices, and the EnOcean smart gateway as the gateway in the IBM Watson IoT Platform.
  • 3. After the devices and gateways are registered, send the event and check the heartbeat of the sensors in the IBM Watson IoT Platform.
  • 4. Configure the Real-Time Insights (RTI) service to capture the EnOcean sensor events and feed the RTI rule for server room permission in TRIRIGA.
  • 5. Configure the custom REST in TRIRIGA using OSLC, Report Query, and Portal Builder.

Recipe: How do you use Real-Time Insights with TRIRIGA work orders to close a fridge door?


In a smart building, it is imperative to monitor the smooth functioning of facilities operations. One of the critical parameters to monitor is the temperature of the facility. IBM TRIRIGA is an integrated workplace management system (IWMS) which increases the operational, financial, and environmental performance of facilities.

Temperature sensors will detect the sudden increase in temperature. Events like “door left open” from refrigerators and vending machines can lead to the damage of food and grocery. A real-time event demands a real-time action, and IBM Real-Time Insights service along with Watson IoT, can not only detect the event, but also initiate an action. The action can be in the form of a web hook (HTTP) to another application, or email, or IFTTT (IF This Then That) action. In this recipe, we will initiate a work task in TRIRIGA, initiate IFTTT, and send email to a service person to close the fridge door.

Requirements

  • 1. IBM Bluemix account.
  • 2. Java Client Library for IBM Watson IoT Platform.
  • 3. Cloud instance of a TRIRIGA server (Version 10.5).

Recipe flow

This recipe is demonstrated and documented using IBM Bluemix. To simulate the sensor data, the Java Client Library for IBM Watson IoT is used. The device definition is done in the Watson IoT service. The Real-Time Insights service binds to a Bluemix application that already has the Watson IoT service. Define Watson IoT as the data source to Real-Time Insights. Configure the device and schema mapping in the Real-Time Insights dashboard. Create the rules and analytics (alerts) in the Real-Time Insights dashboard. Also, set up a TRIRIGA SaaS instance with a public IP, IFTTT trigger and action, and email configuration…
