TempAlert: Configuring Device Settings

  1. Log into the Insights Dashboard
  2. From the Devices tab, choose Device List

  3. Locate the device you want to configure, and click View
  4. In the Device Information section, click Edit
    • By default, each device is named New Device, so the best practice is to name your device based on what you are monitoring or where the device is located
  5. To update your monitoring interval for each device, go to the Interval dropdown menu and choose an interval
    • The default interval is set to 60 minutes
  6. Adding an address for the device will populate a pin on the Device Map view
    • The address field accepts either standard mailing addresses or geographical coordinates
  7. From the Time Zone dropdown list, choose the time zone in which the device resides
    • Devices default to the Eastern time zone
  8. To change your device temperature readings from Fahrenheit to Celsius, use the Unit dropdown list
    • The default setting is Fahrenheit
  9. Use the Enable Public URL dropdown list to generate a unique URL that can be disseminated to other individuals so they can have read-only access to this device on any web browser
    • The default setting is Disabled
    • Be mindful that the URL is public, and although nothing can be edited, site visitors can export data from this dashboard
  10. Finally, the Tags field lets you add specific text tags to your devices, which enables easier searching and group alert setup
  11. Utilizing device tags for group alerts is a powerful feature that enables a large number of devices to inherit a single group alert based on a single shared tag (for more detailed information on Tags, click here)
  12. It is highly recommended you name all your devices and adjust settings to the proper configurations
