Forecasts your consumption and costs for the coming months, and compare it vs your different budgets and baselines.
 

Getting Started

 
Note: you should be superAdmin or Admin in order to configure the Forecast. Otherwise, contact with the administrator of your account.

The first step is to configure your forecast and allow the system to do some calculations based on temporal series algorithms. To do so, you should go to Settings > Forecasting > and click on "new". Here you can define the device you want to use to train and calculate its corresponding forecasting. Just select the associated location, the device and the corresponding parameter. Below you have an example: 
 
 

Add/Edit Model


You can edit the model and add all the variables you want to include on it. The model will be calculated using the maximum resolution available from all variables every day at 03:00 GMT+1. When a model is changed, the system retrieves information from last 36 months to recalculate the forecasted data. You can add as many variables as you need. In the following example we are using the electrical consumption and the outdoor temperature:


Add/Edit baselines

 
You may want to compare your forecast consumption against your goals or targets as a baselines. Here you can add up to 5 baselines to compare with your forecast consumption. 
 
 


Analysis
