Manage Sites

Create Locations to monitor device data in viewLinc. After Locations are created, link Locations to device channels. You require Manage Devices right to link Locations to your device channels.

Use your mouse to drag a device channel from the Hosts and Devices tree to a Zone, automatically creating a new linked Location.
  1. In Sites Manager navigate the Zones and Locations tree to select a Zone or Location.
  2. Select Manage > Create Location, or right-click a Zone folder and select Create Location.
  3. On the Create Location window, type a name for the Location.
    Use the Location name to describe the area being monitored. If a device is swapped out or re-located, the Location description is retained.
  4. Add Location properties:
    Measurement type
    Select the value being measured. If the type is Temperature, select the preferred temperature unit to display in browser windows (°C or °F, or the system default, set in the System Preferences window).
    Decimal places
    Specify the number of decimal places to display.
    For additional clarification, you can type a description of this Location (optional).
  5. Select Create.
  6. Select Save, or Undo to cancel.

To enable data reporting and alarm monitoring in viewLinc, link this Location to a device channel.
