Overview of Portfolios, Sites, Field Units and Devices

Observant Global structures your system and data using Portfolios, Sites, Field Units and Devices.



Portfolios are generally a property, however they can be a group of farms or ranches, a single farm or a ranch, or even a part of a farm or a ranch.

This is the highest level of data group in Observant Global™ and is important as :

- Each Portfolio will have a single Payment Contact and is billed as a single invoice.

- User Access is managed on a per Portfolio basis

- If a User has access to a Portfolio, they have access to the entire set of sites and equipment within it.



A site represent a geographic location that contains one or more Field Units.  For example, Northern Paddock, Top Tank, Main Bore, etc. 


Field Units

An Observant C3 or Solo is a Field Unit.  Essentially the power supply, brains and telemetry.



Devices are monitoring sensors or control equipment that are connected to a Field Unit.  Soil Probes, Level Sensors, Pumps or Solenoid Valves are all examples.
