What are sightings

Sightings are other peoples alerts. The Perch sensor triggers alerts based on community intelligence. You can find your own alerts and get details from Perchybana.

Since Perch is community focused, knowing information about your peer groups are seeing is critical. Those are sightings. Sightings give you an indication on who else is seeing, and how they are dealing with the indicators that you’re both alerting on.

Sightings on the Map

Map sightings

One place you will see sightings is on the map on the dashboard. Sightings show up as a hexagonal heat map representing the level of alert activity within your communities.

Clicking on one of the colored hexagons1 will open a panel beneath the map with sightings details within that geographic area.

1 You may not see any hexagons yet if you’re not part of any active communities.
