Wireless diagnostics

The wireless diagnostic screen is designed to display information about the components enrolled. This is visible in a clear overview where multiple pieces of information are visible. The overview is displayed live, any messages or information will be visible immediately.

It is possible to use the wireless diagnostic screen via the UNii Manager or UNii Online from the following firmware versions:

  • UNii panel firmware 2.12 or higher
  • UNii wireless interface firmware 3.2.0 or higher

In this overview, it is possible to see different conditions. The following is visible below:

  • Signal strength
  • Battery level
  • Status (open, closed, tamper, etc.)
  • Supervision times (these automatically reset themselves if OK)

Points of attention
Keyfobs have no supervision time because they are taken out of the range of the receiver.

Smoke detectors have additional information about the smoke chamber in the component. This will provide additional information about the contamination measured. When these values are too high, the smoke detector will give a ‘clean me’ message. This can be cleaned with compressed air (compressor or canned air).

With UNii Elite components that communicate via a repeater, the overview will show the message “via repeater”. The signal strength visible then is the signal strength from the repeater to the component.

For error messages about a component, several factors can be examined. This will possibly provide a quicker insight into the solution. Pay attention to the following factors:

  • If the signal strength does not come in properly, this can cause unnecessary reports. Placement and construction (like walls and building structures) are also a factor. Indeed, a component’s signal can be affected by a standard wall. This can result in around 20% signal loss per wall.
  • When reception is poor, a component’s battery may run down faster. This is because it makes multiple attempts to send its message. This can have a detrimental effect on battery life. This can be displayed on the diagnostics screen during maintenance.
