You can connect different devices to ActiveView, in particular ActiveGuards and ActiveTracks. To open a list of all devices, select Management → Devices in the main menu.
In this list, you can see the current state of all devices (updated automatically, without reloading the page by the user):
Note: Device configuration should have selected additional data.
You cannot create a new device yourself. It has to be assigned to you by an ActiveView administrator. Then you can edit or remove the device.
Every device has the following properties:
The device connection status depends on the last event sent by the device. The rules are as follows:
Clicking on the position option on an ActiveTrack details panel opens a new panel with a map showing the current location of the device.
Above the map there is a date range filter. Choose appropriate dates and click the > button to view the device’s trace from the chosen date range.
The trace is limited to number of nodes set in the user settings (the default is 100; see User settings for details). If there are more locations of the device recorded, they are filtered evenly. If you need more precision, try narrowing down the date range.
You can click on a node to see some details, like time and date, exact position, speed, etc.
You can select one or more devices and send a command to them. To do this, use Send command via OSM from the context menu or from the tools menu.
NOTE: OSM is a special software ActiveView uses to communicate with devices. List of commands find in device manual. The commands use without service code infront.
The Send command panel contains the following elements:
Removing a device does not affect past events or alarms. They are still available unchanged in the alarms browser and in the reports.
NOTE: You cannot open the details of a deleted device, so it is impossible to see its past trace from there. Events and alarms report, however, has an option to show events on a map. See Events and alarms report for details.
