Overview

Control4 BMS Monitor Lite is a unique driver from Janus technology for monitoring thermostat and consumption data, providing a simple web interface for viewing this historic data.

It is a perfect lightweight alternative to BMS Monitor if you only need to monitor a single zone (e.g. tracking rack temperature to confirm safe operation).

The driver allows key parameters from one thermostat in your project to be monitored (current temperature, setpoint, HVAC mode and HVAC state). Additionally, outside temperature is obtained from an Internet service, together with a temperature forecast for the rest of the day.

The solution supports any thermostat proxy, v1 or v2 - no special thermostat drivers are required. Furthermore, no additional devices/interfaces are required - all data is stored directly on the main controller, and backed up in persistent memory, so it is preserved across power cycles and even system restores. Up to 30 days' data (or 10K samples) are stored for the monitored elements, with simple navigation between daily and weekly views.

In addition to thermostats, BMS Monitor supports other data visualisations, such as water consumption, energy usage and more! See the FAQ for a full list of supported drivers.

While BMS Monitor Lite allows you to view one thermostat and one utility driver, you may be interested in BMS Monitor - which allows for any number of supported drivers to be monitored simultaneously!

 

Webview Compatibility

The webview interface is compatible with any Control4 T3 touch screen.

You can also view the interface from any browser by navigating to the following URL, substituting in the IP address of your main processor;

FAQ

What driver types are compatible with BMS Monitor?

  • Thermostats (v1 and v2 proxy)
  • HeroLabs Sonic (water consumption)
  • Flo by Moen (water consumption)
  • KNX Generic Monitor (any KNX datapoint!)
  • eGauge Monitor (energy usage)
  • Control4 Zigbee to IO / Contact Sensor (temperature and humidity)

Which variables are monitored for thermostats?

Depending on the thermostat driver capabilities, the following variables can be monitored

  • Temperature
  • Setpoint C/F (single setpoint, or seperate Heat/Cool setpoints according to capabilities)
  • HVAC Mode
  • HVAC State
  • Humidity

Additionally, the following data will also be visible alongside the aforementioned variables

  • Outdoor temperature + forecast
  • Outdoor humidity + forecast

I would like a new driver type / variable to be monitored

We are actively working on this solution to bring other data visualisations into Control4. Please contact us with any suggestions or if you have any specific requirements!
