Overview of the Devices Page

Field and Button Descriptions

Serial Number
The serial number of the device. This is either a custom serial number, or randomly generated depending on your business needs at time of ordering the device.


The location name is a quick user-readable way to identify where the device is physically located. This helps for narrowing down a device during technical support calls, or simply when you want to update content for a specific location.


Device Type
OmniAlly offers our custom LANCTRL device type for monitoring and controlling systems, as well as our ShowCTRL platform for media and interactivity playback. This will identify which device type it is.


Denotes which companies have access to edit the specific device. This will show all parent and child sub-companies.


The status can be: online, offline, or error.

The device is online and has no known errors

An offline device cannot check in to inform if it has an error, an offline device should be considered with caution.

The typical cause for a device being offline is due to the device stop checking in, which could be because the internet has stopped working at the location, the device is powered down, or the device is completely frozen past the point of checking in with an error status.

The device has an error. This status will have more urgency than any Offline status devices. An Error status is generally attributed to a deviation from expected behavior, such as an LCD not checking into the media player, heat being too high, video wall configuration not automatically re-applying correctly, or a number of other reasons.
