Manage Devices

Add additional access points as device hosts to help manage groups of wireless devices. Once connected, access points are automatically recognized in viewLinc.

  1. Make sure the access point is configured and connected to your network (refer to the AP10 User Guide for instructions).
  2. In Sites Manager select the Hosts and Devices tab and then select Refresh.
  3. If the new access point does not appear automatically in the Hosts and Devices tree, add the AP manually.
    1. Select Configure > Add Host.
    2. Type the hostname or IP address.
    3. Select Save.
    4. Select Yes if prompted to refresh viewLinc.

viewLinc automatically accepts the access point, but it may take a few seconds to several minutes to connect all of its RFL data loggers. You can continue with other activities until you receive notification the process is complete. If RFL data loggers are connected to the access point, the New Devices prompt appears at the top of the viewLinc desktop.
