Once you tap on a device you enter the Device Details screen. This is the page where all the information and operations for a device are available.
There are five default tab screens available, Info, Connect, Alerts, History and Eyes and some other tab screens which vary depending on the type of device (for instance Config, for IP-based PDUs, smart plugs or supported Home Controllers, Interfaces for SNMP-enabled Network Interface traffic and mappings and other device-specific tabs).
The info view of a device allows you to do a lot of different things, from getting basic details about the device, to editing the device name and location, adding a note, selecting the type of device it is, etc. We’re going to cover most of the options in detail in this section and explain the functionality of every option.
To change the device type, simply click on the Edit icon next to the device name.
On top most Common Types will be presented, scrolling down all types are shown grouped by Category (Audio&Video, Home&Office, Network, Smart Home, Mobile, Server, Engineering).
To select the type you want to assign to your device, simply tap on one of the available types.
To change the name of your device, simply click on the Edit icon and you’ll jump to the Device Properties section. The procedure is the same for entering the Location or Zone information.
Location is the room/site where the device is located and Zone is the area within the location (Rack, Floor #, etc.). These are all free text fields that also maintain a list of possible values so you don’t have to insert the same information multiple times.
The Important/Indifferent option allows you to filter devices based on if they’re important or not for your company.
For example, your NAS would potentially be a device that you would like to be sure is always online and therefore you could mark it to be Important, then by tapping on the categories button in the main menu in the Domotz app, you can easily filter for important devices only.
Important/Indifferent this is a key concept within Domotz. Since all features of Domotz are available for each device in the home, this is a way for professional installers and service providers can use to identify devices they want to monitor.
It’s very easy to configure the Important/Indifferent status of a device. Simply tap on either word to change the device from important to indifferent. In this example, the device is set to Important.
For some device types (e.g. Network Equipment) the device is marked as Important by default. This capability and its behavior can be controlled and configured from the Portal, under the Account Settings section.
This is the list of types automatically marked as Important:
Printer & Fax
Smart Power Plug
Heating & Cooling
Audio & Video
Speaker & Amp
