General Info
Personalise and describe your device
The [GENERAL INFO] tab is where you can describe, personalise and provide summary information about your device. It allows you to give a context to a device that is easily understandable by other users in your workgroup.
MENU: > [DEVICES] > (select device) > [GENERAL INFO]
A device can be configured to display a number of attributes related to that device. Examples could include but not limited to:
  • Address
  • Latitude & Longitude
  • Images of the device and its location
  • Map
  • Elevation
See Metadata for more information on configuring these attributes.

Note: Why you should make use of this tab:

As your workgroup grows, more and more devices are added to your work group list. Over time this expanded list of devices will take on a dimension that, with a good summary of device information, will make it easier for you and your team to visualise what each device is connected to and its location.
Furthermore, new workgroup users and administrators will appreciate the context provided with a comprehensive [GENERAL INFO]tab. Well presented information and visualisations, make for quick comprehension, easy take-up and fewer questions.

Managing Images

Images can be uploaded for each device on the General Info tab. This can be used to show the physical location of the Ardexa device in a machine room, or the physical surrounds of the installation to name two useful examples.
