Aloha comes equipped with a SD card where multiple configuration files are stored to alter the device's behavior. Majority of these files are in an XML format to ease readability. Hence, a text editor with an XML editing feature, such as Notepad++ for example, is better suited than a basic notepad. Following sections each have a dedicated article which highlight key elements to adjust for user's needs:
- drivers to enable different sensors embedded or external to Aloha;
- automation to specify what data should a sensor output;
- open data management (ODM) to specify what data should be sent to remote server and at what frequency;
- network manager to enable or disable the different network interfaces;
- mqtt client to edit client credentials;
- firmware to update or revert to another version of the board's firmware;
- device to manage the device's general details and manage the previous sections.
