The External Recorde allows you to record data from a device inside your project to a external database.
It works like a normal Recorder, plus it gives you the chance to set up a “influxdb” gateway to export the data into your external database.
- You could set up a External Recorder to record data from multiple places, you can have more that one X1 server that aim to the same Data Base from different buildings.
Data to record: Components’ list whose data you want to record; You can choose components that represent binary states (e.g. Switch) or a numeric value (e.g. Info). Selection is carried out by dragging components from “My components” area to the list box.
Recording interval [s]: It involves recording a behaviour after every specified time period [seconds]; When the field is left empty or filled with “0” value, Recorder keeps recording any behaviour every second.
