In Manage Equipment, you will see all Portfolios, Sites, Field Units and Devices that you have access to. 

 

Issues within a Portfolio are quickly identifiable with the Field Unit and Device Health display.

The connectivity of Field units and Devices are indicated via color code:

  • Green indicates no issues
  • Amber indicates a warning
  • Red indicates an error 

Example 1: SL-10353 Solo Telemetry Unit at Site "Bore Trough" is online as indicated by the green dot. However, SL-10354 at Site "The Homestead Fire R" has a very weak cellular connection as shown by the message and red dot. 

 

Example 2: The Amber dot and message warn that C3-3342 at site "Soil Moisture" has not been contactable for over two hours. The red dot and the red error message on the device Soil Moisture Probe indicate that there is an issue with the moisture probe.
