Insights Report Filters

You can modify the data shown in a set of reports based on specific filters. This enables you to visualize and analyze data to make product improvements, revenue predictions, etc. This section describes the filters commonly used in all of the Ayla Insight reports. When you select a filter that is available in all reports, that same filter is set in all reports for which the filter is applicable. For all filters, you must select the Update Report button to activate the filter.

The Software Version Filter

The Software Version refers to the firmware image (specific software version) associated with the devices. It is either the version of the Ayla firmware on the Wi-Fi module, or the version of the host MCU's firmware that runs on the OEM's microcontroller unit (MCU). The host MCU is the product’s MCU that communicates directly with the Ayla-enabled Wi-Fi module using the Ayla module drivers.

The Display Filter

All the report sets, except Notification Analysis, have a Display filter that enables you to show the data over weeks, months, or years. This filter is available for all report sets.

The Notification Type Filter

The Notification Type filter enables you to show device data based on a specific alert type (user-defined notification), such as SMS (short message service), email, push (set up and sent from server usually in real-time), forward, and so on. Notifications help monitor device activity. This filter is available in Device Details and Notification Analysis report sets.
