The photos that are displayed on the Dashboard are not just for making your Dashboard more appealing, they're also valuable tools for keeping your personnel safe, validating onboarding data and locating FitMachines.
The most valuable information you can get from the photos is that you and your staff will know where to look to find the FitMachine sensor when necessary. A good photo will show you where the FitMachine is installed and the proximity to any hazards such as an elevated platform, rotating elements or slippery surfaces. When used in conjunction with the Notes field on the Dashboard, the photos can be a vital tool for keeping your personnel safe when installing FitMachines.
Good quality photos can also help MOVUS technicians identify instances where a FitMachine has been installed in such a way that will impair it from collecting accurate data from your equipment. To install your FitMachine sensors so that they will gather the most accurate data, see our article on FitMachine Installation.
Photos can also help to validate onboarding data that has been entered in both the MAC Address fields and also the equipment specific details that can be found on the Motor and Local Nameplates of the equipment. If you can get a good photo of your equipment model number it can also be used to find some of the running data of your equipment that you might not be able to find on the nameplate.
The following photos are examples of bad photographs that have been added to the Dashboard by MOVUS staff.
As an Overall View photo, this photo is just about useless as there are no identifiable markings in the photo and nothing that can be used to locate the equipment, let alone the installed FitMachine. Photo was taken by one of our junior technicians during an installation.
