Device Status Monitor

Learn the information you can monitor for devices that have been assigned to a group.

The Device Status Monitor page displays the following information about devices that have been assigned to a group:

Table 1. Device Status Monitor fields



Device Groups

Displays the name of every group that manages devices, in alphabetical order.

If you have Perform System Administration or Perform System Device Management permissions, you can monitor devices for all groups. If you are a group device manager, you can monitor devices only for groups you are permitted to manage.

Total Devices

Displays the total number of devices owned by the group. Devices that are owned by a nested group are not included in this total. Nested groups appear alphabetically within the list; they are not displayed hierarchically under parent groups.

Active Devices

Displays the total number of devices owned by this group that are pinging the server. The devices do not need to be logged into the system, but they do need to be assigned to a group.


Shows the name of the physical site the group is associated with.

Important: Devices that have not been assigned to a group yet are not listed on the Device Status Monitor page, even though such unassigned devices can still be used to log into the system and appear on the Badge Status Monitor page.

To display a list of devices owned by a group, expand the group by clicking the triangle at the left of the group's name and icon.

After you expand a group, the Device Status Monitor displays columns of information for each active device. This is similar to the information that appears in the Badge Status Monitor, except it is sorted by group and it includes the serial number and device label. See Badge Status Monitor.

If a user is not logged into a device and it is currently in a battery charger, the Full Name field for that device displays "Not logged in" and a lightning bolt icon appears to the right of the badge icon.

You can display the devices of one group at a time only. For example, you can display a list of devices in the Doctors group, or you can display a list for the Nurses group, but you cannot display devices for both groups at the same time.

You can also use the Device Status Monitor page to perform the following tasks:

The Vocera Voice Server updates the Device Status Monitor according to the number of seconds you set as the Refresh Interval. To specify a different time between automatic updates, type a value of 20 or greater in the Refresh Interval field and press Enter.
