When creating new Zones, first think about the areas you want to monitor (your buildings, floors, storage rooms, testing labs), then identify all the specific Locations within those areas where your devices are installed and channels record data (cabinets, refrigerators, storage racks).

For organizations with several devices installed, Zones help you identify the areas where data is collected from multiple devices or device channels. You can also create sub-zones if you monitor several areas at multiple sites.

By identifying Locations in Zones you can also:

  • Swap a device easily from one Zone to another (perhaps when sending a data logger out for calibration).
  • Ensure that reporting is consistent for a specific Zone, regardless of the data logger used to monitor that Location.

A fully configured viewLinc desktop provides you with an online representation of your monitored areas.
