The June release of Digi Remote Manager® is coming on June 10! If you are new to Digi Remote Manager, you can learn about its features and functionality on the Digi Remote Manager web page. In brief, Digi RM is a hosted platform for IoT device monitoring, management and IoT security. This cost-effective tool enables organizations to rapidly deploy Digi devices in the field, keep tabs on all of those devices through visualization and alerts, efficiently manage their entire deployment over time, and utilize automated security and configuration management.

That is just the tip of the iceberg. Administrators can also use Digi RM to quickly update firmware on all devices, download files, add edge functionality, or integrate third-party services such as AWS and Microsoft Azure. Visit the web page for additional cloud integration examples, as well as free trial information and access to the Digi Remote Manager login page.

In this blog post, we'll share some of the exciting new feature enhancements of Digi RM.

What's New in Digi Remote Manager: New UI and More!

With the new release, we are introducing a new user interface with many exciting new features. You can use Digi Remote Manager in the familiar "classic" mode, or in the new updated user interface.

In addition to the new UI updates, the new features and enhancements in this release of Digi Remote Manager include configuration management, sub-account management, and the API Explorer. Our developer team is working on additional enhancements every day, including new APIs and UI functionality. To better support the transition, we are also creating training modules on the new version of Digi Remote Manager.

As always, we value your feedback. Use the in-app Feedback feature to share your suggestions and comments directly with us. To use this feature, go to the user menu in the upper right side of the page and select Feedback.

Here are just a few of the updates and highlights.

Digi Remote Manager's new UI

The new user interface rolling out in the June 10th release of Digi Remote Manager is designed to make the platform easier to use.

The classic UI has not gone away. You will still have the ability to use the Classic UI by clicking your username in the upper right-hand corner and then clicking Open Classic Remote Manager

 To get an early look at the new platform UI, you can do so by clicking the Try the Remote Manager 3.0 Preview button in the upper right-hand corner.

New feature: Configuration Manager

The new Configuration Manager feature takes over where the Profiles left off. This feature allows you to enable automated management of your devices' firmware, settings, and files.

By creating a Configuration for a group, you can easily scale and automate your deployments by simply adding your devices to the appropriate group and the Configuration Manager will take over from there to ensure that your devices get the appropriate firmware, settings, and files.


New feature: API Explorer

APIs are the connective tissue in today’s ecosystems. For companies who know how to implement them, they can cut costs, improve efficiency, and help the bottom line. 

The API Explorer is a tool that helps you explore various APIs interactively. With the API Explorer, you can:
  • Browse quickly through available APIs
  • Execute requests and see responses in real time
  • Make authenticated and authorized API calls with ease
  • Search across all services and methods to quickly find what you are looking for
See our full list of API's currently in place. 

Feature highlight: Dashboards

With the help of our Dashboards, users can monitor, control and access any of their connected devices and data within Digi Remote Manager. Our dashboard widgets easily link you to the exact devices you need to manage. Just click any of the graphs and metrics to drill into more detail.

The Dashboard layout is fully customizable. You can arrange any of the available widgets as you like, keeping the most important information where you need it.
