Adding or Editing a Device
As soon as a Vocera device arrives at a site, its identifying information should be
entered into the Vocera system so that it can be tracked and monitored
This should be done even before the device is configured. This helps prevent the device
from being lost or transferred to another department. It also allows you to monitor and
report on the device status.
There are three ways devices can be added to the Vocera system:
Automatically load devices when they connect to the Vocera Voice Server. See Automatically Loading Devices into the System.
A system administrator can import devices from a CSV file. See Importing Data from a CSV File.
A system administrator or system device manager can add devices using the
Devices screen in the Administration Console.
Note: Group device managers cannot use the Administration Console to add devices.
