- Graphs for the recording and analysis of consumption
The recording and analysis of consumption data functions with the aid of graphs. Various values can be displayed according to year, month, day and hour.

The message lists display alarm messages, measurement values and statuses of devices and contacts integrated in the system.
- Display of current weather data
The data from a weather station can be read while on the move, including, for example, the wind speed, precipitation and temperatures. In addition, the water level of cisterns or the energy generation of photovoltaic systems can be viewed. For example, if a storm is forecast, you can take precautions while still in the office by lowering the blinds or closing the windows to prevent building damage.
