Training Material and Reports
This page contains Reports, Presentations and a number of Videos that explain how to use the ANTHC Remote
Monitoring website. This website is based upon a website developed for the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC)
Building Monitoring System project. Most of the reports and training material below come from that project.
Reports and Presentations
Final Report for the Alaska Housing
Finance Corporation (AHFC) Building Monitoring System Project: Design
of the Monitoring Systems, Benefits from Monitoring various System Types, Installation Tips,
Internet Access Issues.
A short presentation showing how to set up data collection from an Okofen Wood Pellet Boiler.

of the video's title page to start the video.
||(10 minutes) This video gives a brief overview the AHFC Building Monitoring System project. Much of
the content is also relevant to the ANTHC Remote Monitoring effort.
||(9 minutes) This video shows how to select various various reports and graphs for each facility.
The video also explains a number of graphing features, such as zooming, highlighting points, and hiding
data series on the graph. These features are common to all the graphs on the web site, and this
video is an important one to watch prior to watching the videos below.
||(13 minutes) This video explains the graphs that are available to compare energy use across
multiple buildings, a feature not implemented for the ANTHC Remote Montioring project.
However, it also describes the "Current Values" report, which is implemented in this site. This
report shows the current sensor readings for any one facility.
||(8 minutes) This video explains the "Plot over Time" graph, also known as the "Time Series" plot.
This graph lets you graph how one or more sensor values change over time. This is the
workhorse graph of the system, so this video is important.
||(8 minutes) This video explains the "Hourly Profile" chart.
This graph lets you graph how a sensor's value changes across the hours in the day. It also allows
you to select particular days to look at, such as Monday through Friday or just Saturday.
||(6 minutes) This video explains the Histogram chart.
This graph is good for learning about the range of values measured by a sensor. It also shows you
the values are recorded most frequently and least frequently.
||(5 minutes) This video explains how to download sensor data into an Excel spreadsheet.
||(11 minutes) This video explains how to add a new Monnit Wireless Sensor to the monitoring
system. This video is only appropriate for system administrators and is not meant for general
users of the monitoring system.
