Monitor the Status of a Managed Device

Managed Devices have the advantage of allowing real-time status monitoring.

For all Managed Devices, monitoring is achieved via some simple visual cues in your Dashboard. You will notice that in the Sidebar, each managed device appears with a little icon in front of its name. Status monitoring changes the icon color to reflect its current status.

Monitoring works with three different status colors:

  • Green: Online => The device is online
  • Red: Offline => The device isn’t connected to the network – and is assumed offline
  • Blue: Updating => The device is either booting up or updating its internal software. In this case, patience may be required.

Keep in mind that you can also monitor a device’s status from the Device inspector.

Note: For the moment, device monitoring offers only simple status read-outs. Although useful for fleet managers to quickly identify online/offline devices, it remains limited. We plan to integrate more refined status and log features in the near future – stay tuned.
