Devices can be grouped in hierarchical order to match customer or installation location, limit access for a set of devices or aggregate status of multiple devices. Status aggregations provide a dashboard view of device health, connectivity, service status and firmware level.
Devices can be updated individually or in batches by starting the automated update process after switching to the list view in the dashboard.
