Data Elements Tab

'Data Elements' is the Vesta term for any data that can be used in rules or in status displays. A data element may be temperature from a sensor, the state of a thermostat from a discrete input, the state of a circulator controlled by the Vesta, or the value of an internal variable that the Vesta uses in its rules.

This tab is where you can assign user-friendly names to the Vesta physical I/O channels. You can also create variables and assign values to them.
