What do I see on the home screen of my mobile app?

With Genea, you can gain valuable insight into your building's meter readings by referring to your app's home screen. Let's see each section of the home screen in detail.

1. Building's Meter Summary

The top row of the home screen displays your building name.

The section below the building name displays the summary of the meters that are due to be read, readings that are pending to be uploaded to the central server, and meters that are yet to be commissioned.

2. Ready to upload: If you have any pending meter readings to be uploaded to the central server, you will see "Ready To Upload" section on your home screen with a list of readings that is yet to be uploaded.

Readings can be uploaded in any of the following ways:

  • You can manually upload the readings by clicking on the "Upload" button in the section.

  • The system can sync the readings automatically. Genea's automatic upload service currently operates on a cyclic basis. The service runs typically every 5 minutes.

"Ready to upload" section:

Meter Id: Identification number of the meter.

Reading Date: Date on which meter reading is been recorded.

Reading: Meter readings that indicate how much energy resources you have used.

Photo: Link of the meter reading photo that is taken while recording the reading.
