Frequently Asked Questions
Atrius Insights is a cloud-based software which provides geospatial analytics based on position data collected from Atrius Navigator or other third-party indoor positioning systems. Atrius Insights provides map-based location analysis of facilities for building owners, facility managers, and business analysts to understand movement of location enabled devices. Atrius Insights uses historical data to allow users to compare locations and analyze human interaction in space over time.
Atrius™ Insights relies on either the Atrius™ Navigator platform service or a Third-party positioning system, in addition to the Atrius™ Sensory Network. Indoor position locations are collected through Atrius™ Navigator, and that data is processed, aggregated, and stored in the cloud. From there, metrics are collected and can be visualized through our Atrius™ Insights web application or APIs.
Atrius Insights uses the Atrius Navigator indoor positioning system, which leverages mobile devices to calculate location coordinates.
If a customer is not using Atrius Navigator as their indoor positioning system, Atrius Insights can still ingest 3rd party data using APIs. However, since these positions are not coming from our Atrius Sensory Network, we cannot guarantee the data accuracy or quality of the positions.
The following is a list of the main components of an Atrius enabled site:
- Atrius Sensory Network
- Enabled with Atrius luminaires (commissioned by the Atrius Deployment Team)
- Atrius Navigator platform service – mobile SDK and admin web application OR 3rd party positioning data system
- Cloud hosted map service and floorplan
- Microsoft Azure Active Directory authentication
To keep your building information secure, Atrius Insights and Atrius Admin leverage your company login information by using Microsoft Azure Active Directory for authentication. If your company uses Microsoft Office 365, you most likely will also be using Microsoft Azure Active Directory.
Check with your IT department to make sure your company is using Microsoft Azure Active Directory. In the near future, we will be adding more authentication options to allow for other login types.
The developer will have access to Atrius Admin web application – a configuration tool – that is used for loading the map service, creating zones, adding multiple users, updating maps, and more.
Part of the partner on-boarding process will be the generation of a partner ID and a subscription key that can be used with the Insights API. Contact us if you're interested in becoming an Atrius partner.
Atrius Insights depends on a Map Service that is stored in the Microsoft Azure Cloud. This service is used to deliver both a zoomable background image and the underlying meta-data about a specific site. The Atrius Deployment Team provides specifications on the format and data required to a customer interested in providing their own Map Service. We can also provide this Map Service to a customer as an additional service.
Atrius Insights is accessed by a web browser using your Microsoft Azure Active Directory username and password to login. The Atrius Insights APIs can be accessed through our Atrius Developer Portal.
When you purchase Atrius Insights, you get access to both the web application and the APIs behind it.
There is no limit to the amount of data that can be stored within the Microsoft Azure cloud. All data, no matter its size, can be stored in our cloud.
All zone information is configured using the Atrius Admin tool. Use your Microsoft Azure Active Directory username and password to login. It is also possible to create and edit zones through our Atrius Admin APIs located on our Atrius Developer Portal.
Atrius Admin is used to manage user rights and viewing accesses. Your Organization Admin, or administrative admin, can set and provide additional user accesses, as well as determine which sites each user can view and their level of access (Read only, Admin etc.).
Positioning and analytics data for multi-floor sites will be accurate, performing in the same manner as a single-floor site.
Yes, even though the data is stored in our Microsoft Azure cloud, we do not own the data. All data used by Atrius Insights is owned and managed by the customer, and the usage of that data is up to the customer's discretion.
