A Client ID is a unique key value used to identify a Sollae device. In order to register a device to Sollae Cloud, you need to get its Client ID beforehand.
Get the device's Client ID by using spFinder
Refer to the device's user manual to connect your device with spFinder. Normally just plug the LAN cable into a Sollae device and then Search it in your Local network.
From spFinder window, select the Sollae device you wish to register.
Navigate to the Security tab and copy the device's Client ID.
Due to the ownership security concern, we recommend you keep the Client ID of your devices private.
Click Register Device button
Enter/paste(Ctrl+V) the device Client ID you got and then click Register Device.
You can view the list of devices that are successfully registered under your account.
A device can only be under the registration of a single account at a time. It is possible to access one account from multiple places simultaneously. The maximum number of simultaneous access = The number of your registered devices + 2. For example, if your account has 3 registered devices, it allows up to 5 access simultaneously. Once a device is registered, if you wish to change its ownership to another account, firstly you need to deregister it from the current account.
Select the device you want to deregister
Toggle the management view of a device by clicking on a row in the Device List table.
Click Deregister button inside the device management view
Click Remove Ownership to confirm your decision.
The unregistered device will be removed from your device list, and no longer under your management. Except for the device-stored configurations, all the related settings for the device will be deleted. Once a device is successfully deregistered, you can register it with any account, including the ones that it has been deregistered from.
Please keep in mind that Sollae Cloud communicates and exchanges real-time data with the web app via MQTT protocol over WebSocket. Due to the characteristics of WebSocket on browsers, especially on mobile devices, if the browsing web app is not kept as an open window, the WebSocket session tends to be shut. This will cause MQTT connection loss with our server. We can list some example cases:
When the screen is locked.
When you switch to another app on a mobile device.
In case your web app is disconnected from our MQTT server, all the web app functions such as remote controlling, managing, and monitoring will be unavailable. To continue, simply reload the web app to establish a fresh MQTT session with the server.
Main window
The main window for monitoring and controlling. All devices registered under your account will be shown here. You can watch the real-time data and manually send the control commands.
Components of a device dashboard
Connection state indicator: Demonstrate the connection state of the device. Gray color means not connected, red means connected. Note that when your web app is disconnected from our MQTT server, all the indicators will turn gray even if your devices are still connected to Sollae Cloud.
Device Description Panel: Display the device description. If the description is yet to set or set to empty, the device's MAC Address will be shown.
Device Setting Button: Enter the setting page for a device. This is not accessible when the device is disconnected from Sollae Cloud.
Device Expand Button: Expand view of a single device.
Device Dashboard Panel: Contain the visualization of all individual ports of the device. Each port visualization, or we can refer to as a port widget, consists of a port name label, port description, event/action/alarm/schedule indicators (only turn up if you enable event/action/alarm/schedule for the port), and the data visualization for this port.
Expanded window
An expanded layout and view of a single device and its ports. This window can be opened from the Dashboard page, by clicking on the Device Expand button, or a port widget.
The expanded view can also be entered from a direct URL:
https://cloud.sollae.com/dashboard/MAC_ADDRESS[/PORT_NAME]
For example, a device with MAC Address 0030f9000001 can be accessed from:
https://cloud.sollae.com/dashboard/0030f9000001 or
https://cloud.sollae.com/dashboard/0030f9000001/ai0 to view the particular port AI0.
In the expanded window, the device dashboard is always displayed in Normal View, and center-aligned.

In this document, we use the term HIGH/LOW to refer to the logic state. When you monitor the state of Sollae digital I/O devices via spFinder, you can see the state HIGH is indicated by value 1 and the state LOW is indicated by value 0.
For common use, the logic HIGH and LOW could be otherwise known as the state ON and OFF respectively. However, for the digital output port, this is decided by your configuration on Relay Mode Theme.
View and configure the common setting for a device.
Device Model: Display device model. This field is read-only.
MAC Address: Display device MAC Address. This field is read-only.
Device Description: Use to indicate the device within Sollae Cloud web app. If no description is available, the MAC address will be used. When a device is registered, it looks up the device-stored description that has been set on the device via spFinder, and uses this as the initial value. Any modifications afterward via web app are separate from the device-stored description.
Specify the working parameters of each port in a device.
Port Description: Used to indicate an individual port in Sollae Cloud.
Analog Input Mode: Display the setting for analog input mode of the port. For typical Sollae devices, there are three analog input modes available, including voltage (0 ~ 5V), current (4 ~ 20mA), or current (0 ~ 20mA).
Scaling Range: SCALING_VALUE = ADC_VALUE x ( SCALING_MAX - SCALING_MIN ) / 4095 + SCALING_MIN. Depending on the Analog Input Mode, the input signal is measured by its voltage or current, and then will result as an ADC value ranging from 0 to 4095 (12-bit ADC). For instance, if the Analog Input Mode is set as 0 ~ 5V, then a 0V input voltage will result as the ADC value 0, 5V input voltage will result as the ADC value 4095, and so on. In real applications, users may wish to transform the ADC value into a more practical one, and they can set up the Scaling Range for that purpose. The scaling function covers the general case in which sensors/analog equipment has a linear output. It rescales the data linearly based on the value range. As an example, if a temperature sensor outputs the highest value as 4095 at 100°C and the lowest one as 0 at 0°C, then it is useful to rescale the ADC value. The Scaling Range should be set as 0 ~ 100, as SCALING_MIN = 0 and SCALING_MAX = 100, so an ADC value 2048 will be mapped to: 2048 x (100 - 0) / 4095 + 0 = 50(°C). In Sollae Cloud, this scaled value, instead of the ADC value, is used to represent the analog value of the port. The default value is 0 ~ 4095. If you wish to just use the ADC value, leave the Scaling Range as 0 ~ 4095.
Valid Time (ms): Debounce time for the input port. In order for the input signal to be considered as a valid signal, it must last longer than this period. The default value is 100 (unit: millisecond).
Counter Type: Set the counter for the number of rising/falling edges, or both, on the input signal. The default value is Rise.
Counter Direction: Count up or count down. The default value is Count Up.
Default Counter Value: The value at which the digital input port starts to count after the device booting up. The default value is 0. In case you set the Counter Direction to Count Down, you also need to set the Default Counter Value to non-zero.
Fail-safe Mode: Display the setting for Fail-safe mode of the port. If enabled, when the MQTT connection with Sollae Cloud is lost, the output port is set to LOW. It is expected to have a delay before a connection loss is detected, as the network timeout needs to be passed. It may take around a minute for Sollae devices to enter the Fail-safe mode after the connection loss happens.
Some setting parameters in this category are locally stored on Sollae device memory. If any of those parameters are changed, the device's MQTT connection is required to be restarted. This means the said device will be disconnected from the cloud for a while during the setting update process. Also, for each digital input port, its counter value will be reset to the Default Counter Value. Please consider this to avoid possible issues or disruptions within your system.

Besides, due to the device stability concern, Analog Input Mode and Fail-safe Mode are made to be read-only on the web app. These parameters can be configured using spFinder.
Customize the display UI of a device.
Enable Widget: Show/hide visualization of a port.
Widget: Change the visualization style with our provided widgets.
Color: Select the widget color style.
Unit: Set the displayed unit on a port widget.
Display Range: Set the display range for data visualization. The default value is 0 ~ 4095. In many situations, the meaningful range is much narrower than the possible scope of the analog value. For example, the possible value obtained by a sensor is from 0 to 100 (Scaling Range is set as 0 ~ 100), however, in the real application, it almost only returns the value from 25 to 75. In this case, the Display Range can be set as 25 ~ 75 for better focusing.
Decimal Scale: Set the display format of the analog value as how many digits after the decimal point should be displayed. If set to 0, any floating-point value will be rounded to an integer.
Relay Mode Theme: Set the relay theme mode for Digital Output. If Normal Open theme is selected, the state HIGH of output port will be mapped to ON state in the cloud, the state LOW of output port will be mapped to OFF state. On the other hand, if Normal Close is selected, the state HIGH will be mapped to OFF and LOW to ON state. Please set this theme to match with the relay mode of the device's hardware. The default value is Normal Open.
Command Buttons: Select the buttons for the digital output widget. These buttons are used to send the control command to digital output ports via the web app. For each port, you can enable none, one or two buttons at maximum. The command type can be ON (turn on), OFF (turn off), ON/OFF (toggle) or PULSE (generate a pulse). If the delay is set to 0, the output will be generated immediately once the Sollae device receives the command. The valid range for Delay is 0 ~ 1800, and for Pulse Width is 1 ~ 1800 (unit: second). You can refer to the Multi-controlling for more details.
The widget preview inside this window is only for UI demonstration. The state and value displayed in the widget preview are not the real-time data of the device.
Create a user-defined event by specifying the operating condition on a port. In Sollae Cloud, an event is termed to occur when its defined condition is met. During device operation, each time the condition of an event turns from unmet to met, it will be counted as one occurrence of the said event. When the condition of an event turns from met to unmet, we say that the event has ceased.
Available events
When the analog value falls to a value equal to or lower than the Set Value
When the analog value rises to a value equal to or larger than the Set Value
When the input state changes from ON to OFF
When the input state changes from OFF to ON
When the counter value turns to a value equal to or lower than the Set Value
When the counter value turns to a value equal to or larger than the Set Value

Add New Button: Create a new event on the port.
Click Add New to create a new event.
In the Event configuration window, you can define the event parameters, edit/remove an event or enable/disable existing ones. Remember to save the setting to Sollae Cloud to apply the changes you made.
If you wish to control output ports when an event occurs, you can set the actions to be triggered. Click on the Action Panel to toggle the action configuration window.
Click Add Action to create a new action for an event. A window to configure a new action will be popped up. You can configure the output digital port/device as the target, and set the control command parameters for the action. The valid range for Delay is 0 ~ 1800, and for Pulse Width is 1 ~ 1800 (unit: second).
You can add/edit/remove actions in an existing event or a newly created one. All the actions set for an event will be executed when the event occurs.
While most of the Event Condition parameters are self-explanatory, it is worth mentioning that there is an additional parameter for the analog input port's event, called Tolerance. In real applications, analog input value tends to vary continuously, thus it may fluctuate around the Set Value of an event multiple times, causing an unexpected number of event's occurrences. Setting the Tolerance parameter may help to deter this chattering effect.
When the event is conditioned as the Analog Value rises above a Set Value: An event is considered to have occurred if the Analog Value rises from lower than, to equal to or greater than, the Set Value. Once an event occurs, its current occurrence ends, or in other words, it is ceased, only if the Analog Value falls to lower than Set Value(- Tolerance).
When the event is conditioned as the Analog Value falls below a Set Value: An event is considered to have occurred if the Analog Value falls from greater than, to equal to or lower than, the Set Value. Once an event occurs, its current occurrence ends, or in other words, it is ceased, only if the Analog Value rises to greater than Set Value(+ Tolerance).
An event will be re-evaluated each time the data is updated. By default, the analog data is updated every 5 seconds.
The Analog Value always lies within the Scaling Range. Depending on the configuration, an event will be ceased only if the Analog Value turns to lower than Set Value(- Tolerance), or greater than Set Value(+ Tolerance). To make a valid event for analog ports, the Scaling Range's boundary needs to be taken into account when configuring the Set Value and Tolerance.

Currently, the supported actions are to control your Sollae devices' relays, thus actions will be unavailable if you do not have any Sollae digital output device registered under your account.
View the list of existing events and actions they may trigger on a port. This feature is only available for the digital output ports.
The Action page is for viewing-only. The items, which include the descriptions for trigger event/target action, are displayed and grouped by trigger devices.
Each item listed here also provides shortcut access to the configuration page of the trigger event.
To edit/remove an existing action, you can click on the displayed item to move to the Event page accordingly.
In order to configure an event-based action for an output port, you need to determine which event you wish to be the trigger. The trigger event can belong to any of your registered devices. Visit the Event configuration page of the trigger device to set up the action.
Set up a schedule for scheduled automation. This feature is only available for the digital output ports.
Click Add New to create a new schedule. A window to configure a new schedule will be popped up.
Configuration parameters
Day of the Week: Set the days of the week for the schedule.
Time (hour, minute): Set the time for the schedule.
Repeat Weekly Option: If set, the schedule will be executed weekly. If unset, it will only execute once, and you can choose only one day of the week for the schedule.
Control Command: Specify the command you want, among turning on/off, toggle or generating a pulse on the output. The valid range for Delay is 0 ~ 1800, and for Pulse Width is 1 ~ 1800 (unit: second).
Click OK to proceed. Click Cancel to discard.
In the Schedule configuration window, you can remove a schedule or enable/disable existing ones. If you want to edit an existing schedule, just click on it to open the configuration window. Remember to save the setting to Sollae Cloud to apply the changes you made.
The operation of schedules uses Sollae Cloud's timezone. Remember to set the working timezone for Sollae Cloud in advance.
It is advisable to avoid making different schedules that have time overlap during their executions. If you set several schedules to be taken place at a time, then the later-set schedules' execution will override the previous ones, and that may cause unexpected behaviors for your application. You can refer to the Multi-controlling for more details.
Overview
Collect all the data you need for understanding, evaluating, and controlling your system.
Sollae IoT Gateway devices gather the data from sensors and equipment and then send it to the cloud server every few seconds. For analog input ports, since the data is continuous, if there are different analog values collected during the period, the average is used to represent the measured value. For digital I/O ports, besides being updated regularly, any logic state changes will be reported immediately. It is guaranteed that the data you get via Sollae Cloud is real-time updated.

How to use
Sollae Cloud web UI is ready-to-use for monitoring. You can watch your devices on the dashboard page, or expand the view for a particular device/port. Remember to choose a suitable theme for the dashboard.
For configuration, visit the Widget and the Device categories on the Setting page.
The update rate relies on Sollae devices since Sollae Cloud instantly ships any data receiving from the devices. Basically, the data you monitor via the cloud is updated at least once every 5 seconds for analog input ports, and always up to date for digital I/O ports.
Overview
We provide Sollae devices equipped with relay outputs. By integrating the devices into your system, you can remotely control things as you want via Sollae Cloud.
Supported Model

How to use
For configuration, visit Command Buttons in the Widget category on the Setting page. Set up the commands you want to use for controlling relay outputs.
To send a control command, just press the button shown in the port widget UI. The device will execute the requested command on its digital output port.
Upon a device receives a control command, the command will be processed immediately. The execution time of each command includes the delay and the output generation time. Thus, if you send lots of commands within a small period that causes overlap between their execution time, then the later-sent one will override the previous ones' execution.
Overview
The fundamental use of digital inputs is to acquire input signals. Apparently, it is important to know the logic state. Besides, it can be useful to watch the number of digital edges, in other words, how many times the low-to-high (rising edge) or high-to-low (falling edge) transition of the input signal happens. This feature gives you an advanced tool to capably monitor your system.
Supported Model

How to use
For configuration, visit the Device category on the Setting page.
Users can click the RESET button to reset the counter to the Default Counter Value.
The counter value can also be set by users. Just click the EDIT button on a digital input widget to proceed.
Sollae devices support 32-bit integer counter value, so please input a valid number.
Tip: Set the widget of the digital input port as Counter to better keep track of counter value. The Counter widget will display the current counter value, with a state indicator aside to demonstrate the port state.
Overview
If you wish to turn your manually-control system to a scheduled-automation one, then Schedule is for you. Set up weekly or one-time schedules to make everything work automatically. You can specify the schedule and the output control you wish, which includes setting the output to on/off or generating a pulse.
Supported Model
SIG-5451
SIG-5601
How to use
For configuration, visit the Schedule category on the Setting page. Remember to set the correct timezone, otherwise the scheduling function may not work as you expect.
Once schedules are set for a port, a shortcut to access Schedule configuration will be displayed on the port widget.
Tip: Set the widget of the digital output port as Scheduler to keep track of the schedule. The Scheduler widget will show the next schedule set to be executed on the port. Note that the Scheduler gets the date/time information from the host device (your PC/mobile), so please make sure the date/time of the host device is set correctly.

On a schedule, the cloud will send the command as previously configured to the Sollae device, and the command is executed right after the device receives it. In real situations, the network latency needs to be taken into account. Depending on the network conditions, a schedule is expected to have an execution latency of around a few seconds or less.
Overview
This feature assists you to be reactive to your system. It covers any updates of the analog value in analog input ports, the logic state changes in digital I/O ports, and the counter for signal changes in digital input ports. Just specify the device's operating conditions as events, then when an event occurs you can get alarmed, and/or automatically call the response actions. Currently, the supported response actions include controlling output ports.

How to use
For configuration, visit the Event category on the Setting page.
Once events are set for a port, a shortcut to access Event configuration will be displayed on the port widget. If you set the dashboard theme as Normal View, the analog input widgets may provide the indicators to mark the Set Value of the enabled events.
It is not recommended to define the events that are likely to occur too frequently. Although the purpose of the feature is to keep you proactive of your system, having too many event occurrences within a short time may be difficult to monitor, and that also makes your system seem volatile as well.
Overview
If you are familiar with Sollae I/O products, you may know about Internet Switch, a function that allows transferring digital I/O states via the Internet. With Internet Switch, any state changes in digital inputs ports may be directed to control digital output ports somewhere else. You may achieve more than that with the Action feature on Sollae Cloud, as you are now able to control digital output ports in response to not only digital input state changes but any user-defined events within your system.
A user-defined event can be made from any device, but the target for the action should be a model with digital output ports. Supported actions include setting the output to on/off or generating a pulse.
Supported Model
SIG-5451
SIG-5601
How to use
The first thing to do is to determine under which event condition and from which device/port you wish to trigger the action, and which device/port should be the target that executes the action. For configuration, visit the Event category on the Setting page of the trigger device.
Once actions are targeted for an output port, a shortcut to view the available actions will be displayed on the port widget.
On the Action page, you can see the list of events that triggers action on an output port, grouped by the trigger device.
On the setting page, the Action category is read-only. However, you can click on an item to view/edit the trigger event.
An action execution may cause an event to occur. On the other hand, an event occurrence may lead to an action to be triggered. Please be careful to avoid setting a closed loop of the events and actions, which may trigger an infinite chain of actions inside your system.
Overview
The alarm function is designed to inform users of the occurrence of a user-defined event.
As a client-side feature run by the web app, this is helpful in case users keep an open window for real-time monitoring. Users can be notified via UI visualization and sound when an event occurs.
Supported Model
SIG-5431
SIG-5441

SIG-5601
How to use
For configuration, remember to check the alarm option if you want to get alarmed for a particular user-defined event.
Once alarm-set events are enabled for a port, an alarm icon will be displayed on the port widget.
When an alarm-set event occurs on a port, the alarm icon will turn red. You can quickly dismiss alarm effects on the port by clicking on the alarm icon. A notification panel will show up at the bottom of the browsing window to display the list of your devices that have alarms occurring. The panel allows you to view a device in an expanded window, dismiss the existing alarm effects on each or all of those devices.
You can also stop the effects manually by opening the Event configuration window, then click on the now-blinking alarm indicator to proceed. This could be helpful if there are many alarm-set events on a port and you wish to see exactly which ones are occurring.
If an event is naturally ceased, its alarm effects will be stopped automatically. The effects will arise if the event occurs again. Uncheck the alarm option in the configuration if you do not want alarm effects for an event.
The alarm effects are not usable if your web app is disconnected from our MQTT server. It may also be unavailable for any device that is not being connected to our server.
On desktop browsers, you can turn on Alarm Sound for sound effects.

Digital LED: Display the ON and OFF state via a round LED. Gray indicates OFF and colored indicates ON state.
Counter: Include a triangle LED that indicates the ON/OFF state, and the counting value displayed as a number.
Counter
It is possible to count the number of falling and rising edges of the input signal.
You can set the counter type, counter direction, and default counter value via web app or spFinder. Those are device-stored, which will make the device disconnected from the cloud for a while when you update those configurations, and then the counter will be reset to the default value.
Event
Users can set the event value and get alarmed if the input value or count value meets the event condition. Alarm effects include a red-blinking visualization on the widget and an alarm sound that is played in the web browser.
The alarm sound is optional and can be enabled each time you start a browsing session.
In addition, you can configure event-based actions targeting the Sollae digital output device (SIG-5451), so the output relay can be controlled based on the digital input state.
Multi-monitoring
You can view digital input's logic and counter state anytime, anywhere, from multiple locations at the same time, either on PC or mobile.
Overview
A wired LAN industrial I/O gateway equipped with 2 digital output (relay) ports.
Users can control its relays from anywhere. The digital output ports are interfaced with a 3.5mm pitch 6-pole terminal block. Users can choose between Normal Open and Normal Close mode depending on their application.
Output Control Commands
The output ports are controlled remotely via Sollae Cloud. The digital output device will execute the control command after receiving it from Sollae Cloud. There are four commands available. Users can set the delay time for a command, and in case of PULSE, the Width can be set. The maximum Delay/Width operation time can be set is up to 30 minutes (1800 seconds).
Digital Output Commands
ON/OFF: Toggle the state of the output port between ON and OFF.
ON: Turn on the output port.
OFF: Turn off the output port.
PULSE: Keep the output port state as HIGH for the Width time and then turn to LOW.
For Sollae Cloud web app, in Normal Open mode, if a digital output port has the state ON, that means its logic state is HIGH, while OFF means LOW. Contrastingly, in Normal Close mode, ON means LOW and OFF means HIGH.
Output Control Methods
An output port can be controlled by three methods: via web, schedule or event-based actions from Sollae devices.
Control via Web: Control by interacting with buttons via Sollae Cloud web app. You can enable up to 2 out of 4 commands. Just click the corresponding button on the digital output widget to send the control command.
Control via Schedule: If you set up the desired date and time, a control command will be sent to the device on the schedule. By default, the Repeat Weekly option is enabled. If you only want it to run once, disable this option.
Control via Event-based Action: A control command can be sent to the output port when an event occurs on a Sollae device. For the Sollae analog input device (SIG-5431), after setting up the event condition of the sensor value, you can add a control action so that when the event occurs, the corresponding command will be transmitted to the SIG-5451 output port. For the Sollae digital input device (SIG-5441), after setting up the event condition of the digital input state, you can add a control action so that when the event occurs, the corresponding command will be transmitted to the SIG-5451 output port.
Users can easily control an output port anywhere, anytime, from multiple places and by different methods.
If an output port receives many control commands at the same time, the later-received command will be executed while the previous one will be stopped (see the example below).

You can easily build your own IoT system, monitor, control, and manage it via the Sollae Cloud. We offer a user-friendly web UI, a secure, reliable service that is available 24/7 and accessible from anywhere.
No, you may need to sign up for a Google account then. Besides, for Korean users, Naver account can also be used.
It is free for the basic service. You just need to have a Sollae IoT Gateway in order to use the common features of Sollae Cloud.
To access your sensor/equipment via Sollae Cloud, you need to connect it with a Sollae IoT Gateway device. Sollae Cloud web app provides the user interface, while Sollae IoT Gateway device is the one that executes the job. Sollae IoT Gateway devices are equipped with analog input, digital input, and digital output ports, following industry standards. They act as a bridge between users and the IoT equipment, in that they interface with sensors/equipment on one side and exchange data with Sollae Cloud on the other side.
First, see if your device is a Sollae IoT Gateway device supported by Sollae Cloud. Please make sure the device is connected to the Internet. Follow the device registration process and double-check if you enter the correct device client ID.
Before trying again, it is also recommended to use spFinder to check and update your device's firmware to the latest version.
Note that, you cannot register a device that is currently registered to another account on Sollae Cloud.
Yes, you can. Once a device is registered to an account, it is only accessible from that account. Fortunately, Sollae Cloud allows multiple access for each account. That means if many people want to share the access permission of a device, they can register it to a common account. Then, everyone can sign in with the common account and access the device.
It means many Sollae Cloud web app windows are being opened simultaneously, and that has exceeded the limitation of your account. In the web app window which has this message displayed, you cannot monitor/control or configure your registered devices, but you are still able to register new devices to your account. To continue, please close other web app windows you are not using, or register new devices to increase the number of access allowed for your account, and after that reload the web page.
The maximum number of simultaneous access is the number of registered devices plus two. For example, if an account has 3 registered devices, it allows up to 5 access simultaneously. However, one Dashboard/Management browsing tab is counted as one access. If you open N tabs for the Dashboard/Management page on the same or different browsers, it will be considered as N access.
On Sollae Cloud web app, there may be some cases when you are not able to access a device's setting page:
The said device is disconnected from the Internet: Please check your network condition, verify the LAN cable and network configuration of your Sollae IoT Gateway device. You can check the device's state via spFinder.
The device is still establishing the connection with Sollae Cloud: This process usually takes place when a device boots up/reboots, and can last around one minute. Please wait for a while. You can check the device's state via spFinder.
The device is currently under a setting update/firmware upgrade process: A device's setting update process can take up to 30 seconds, while a firmware upgrade process sometimes can last around two minutes. Please wait for a while. You can check the device's state via spFinder.
Your web app is disconnected from the MQTT server: An error message will be shown on the web page. Reload the web page to continue.
Your current browsing session is expired: An error message will be shown on the web page. Sign in again to Sollae Cloud to continue.
