By varying colors, intensity and light effects, DiCE SMART can inform the user about a number of parameters measured by the sensors connected to it.

Each color corresponds to a family of sensors; darker colors indicate a situation we should pay attention to, softer colors indicate that the measured variable is in line with our expectations.

For each family of colors, DiCE SMART reproduces the entire color range between the two extremes shown below. The color on the left will be flashing when the maximum measurable threshold has been reached.

Energy (electricity consumption monitoring): 

High consumption, flashing = ALARM
Low consumption / Average 

Green Care (monitoring plant health and soil moisture):

Water necessary, flashing = ALARM
Properly watered soil

Air Quality (air quality monitoring / Co2 level):

Air exchange required, flashing = ALARM
Good air quality

Sensors monitoring events, i.e. those which do not perform any measurement and only indicate a warning situation, are categorized by the following colors:

Intrusion (door / window opening monitoring):

Intrusion detected, flashing = WARNING

Smoke (smoke presence detecting):

 Smoke detected, flashing = WARNING

Water (flood monitoring):

Flooding detected, flashing = WARNING

Gas (gas leak monitoring):

Gas leak detected, flashing = WARNING

Wi-Fi connection / Firmware upgrade

No connection / Firmware upgrading

All the above mentioned colors can be devided into 4 categories:

  • Fixed color: everithing is fine, DiCE SMART is indicating the value measured at that moment by the sensor belonging to the color family shown.
  • Flashing color: DiCE SMART flashes (the light goes directly from 0% intensity to 100%  - tourning on and off). This is a WARNING signal; this means that the paramenter belonging to the color shown has reached the maximum possible value. Our action is required.
  • Light trail: DiCE SMART will perform a rotating light trail when the WARNING threshold of the monitored parameter is exceeded. The color will always be that belonging to the related category or sensor. In addition, the rotating light trail will be shown when DiCE SMART is looking for a Wi-Fi network to connect to.
  • Pulsating color: the light intensity passes gradually from 0% to 100% and back. DiCE SMART is indicating that it has lost the connection with the sensor or device indicated by the color shown (example: yellow pulsing color> no connection with D · ENERGY. Pink pulsing color> no internet connection)

IMPORTANT: any warning sign from a sensor has priority over any function displayed on DiCE SMART. Each warning sign lasts for 60sec. If DiCE SMART is connected to the Internet, the warning message will also be notified on the mobile app.
