Viewing devices on the map
On an interactive map displayed on the Map tab, you can visually locate your devices and quickly access for each one the device details page and the device alarms page.
Devices are represented by their health state. When close together, devices are grouped in clusters. A cluster can contain clusters and is represented by a green circle with the number of devices in it. You must break down the cluster into individual devices to access the device information.
You can use filters to restrict the number of devices you want to display in the map. Filters criteria and selection are the same in the List and Map tab. For more information, see Filtering devices.
Important The device must use manual or network location. If using network location, the device's uplink must have been received by at least three base stations.
For more information about all you can do on the Map tab, see More map activities.
In the left panel, click Devices, then select the Map tab.
-> The Map tab shows clusters and/or devices located within the boundaries of the displayed area of the map.
-> If you have made a filter selection, it is applied. To see all devices, click Clear all. For more information, see Filtering devices.
If a cluster is displayed, click it as necessary until it breaks into clusters and/or devices. You can also zoom in and click SEARCH THIS AREA.
-> When one or more devices are found, they appear simultaneously with a health status marker on the map and the list pane.
