reset sensor historical value



Hello, I need to reset the values ​​of some sensors within a particular period. I have to cancel the false down that distort the historical reading.

You can enter special commands with a value in the database? If so, how?

Thank you, best regards. Mauro

Dear Mauro,

you cannot reset sensor data for a certain period (and keep the rest) or erase certain values. You can either clone the sensor, and so start with fresh historic data, or use the Spike Filter in the Channel Settings of the Sensor to remove certain peaks/drops from being displayed.

best regards.
