In Centrix, a Site defines a geographical location that combines data from a collection of sensors/assets into a single view. Often, this is a one-to-one relationship with a data logger (or single network of data loggers), though it is possible to combine data from multiple data loggers onto a single site - with some known limitations.


Listing sites

To view a listing of all the sites available for your user account;

  • Open the main menu ?
  • Expand the Sites menu
  • Select Site List

When first opened, the listing will show a paged list of all the sites you have access to. Each site in the listing displays the following details;

  • Site name
  • Control area
  • Group(s) the site belongs to

The listing can be filtered using the Search box. By default, any text you enter will be searched within the site's name, control area and groups. You can de-select any of these items to search only in specific field(s).

Mapping sites

Sites can hold geolocation (longitude/latitude) values which will allow them to be pinned onto a geographical map.

The map can be accessed as follows;

  • Open the main menu ?
  • Expand the Sites menu
  • Select Site Map

Hover over any of the markers to reveal the site name. Click on any to view/edit the details of the site.


If your sites are not shown on the map, it is likely they have not had their geolocation details configured. You can add geolocation details by editing the site.

Viewing/editing site details

To view the full details of a site, click on the site from the Site Listing or the Site Map, as described above.

This page will show editable controls if you have site admin privileges in Centrix. If you do not have this access level, you will only be able to view the details of the site.

Sites hold the following attributes;

  • Site name - the unique name of the site, shown across the Centrix system
  • Control area - an optional control area name that the site belongs to
  • Latitude/Longitude - the geolocation values for the site, used for marking on a map
  • Time zone - the local time zone for where the site is located, used when transforming raw GMT values into times relevant for the site
  • Engineer details - a general comments field to store additional information against a site that may be useful
  • Groups - the user groups the site belongs to, used to control access to groups of users

In addition to displaying the site's attributes, you can also use the provides buttons to link to other areas of the system for this site;

  • Playback
  • Captures
  • Channels
  • Open map designer
  • Upload hour file
  • Upload CSV event file
  • Delete site - available for site admin users, can be used when the site is no longer active/required

Legacy sites management

For the short term, the previous version of the sites listing is still available through the Sites (Legacy) main menu link.

Documentation for this can be found here; Sites (Legacy).
