New Features in the November 2020 Release of Digi RM
Here are some of the latest enhancements we have rolled out with the November 2020 release.
Data Stream Updates
Data streams are critical for insights, and many of our customers rely on this feature of Digi Remote Manager for crucial business processes. For this reason, we are constantly enhancing the functionality of data streams.
- Within the data streams page, you can view a list of all your data streams as well as create, edit, and delete them. Select a data stream from your list and view a chart of that data streams data points based on several options and using several pre-defined time periods, or simply view the raw data associated with a data stream.
- Digi Remote Manager data streams store and access time-series data. Virtually any type of data can be stored and create real-time charts to visualize and monitor the data streams. Data streams are fully searchable, and the data can also be rolled up into time interval summaries.
- Data streams are primarily intended for numeric data and typically hold data points for a specific attribute on a device, such as the temperature from a specific thermostat. However, data streams can be used for virtually any type of data. Smart Energy attribute data and DIA channel data can be configured to automatically store their data via the time series data feature. Additionally, any data previously accessible via the DIA or XBee APIs is automatically replicated and available for historical query via the Data Streams API.
New Feature: SM/UDP Support
Now you can choose SM/UDP commands from the UI to queue messages to be delivered to devices when sending up a UDP message to Remote Manager.
Feature Enhancements: Subaccount Management
We have added the following enhancements to subaccount management in this release.
- Device registration management: With this new feature a parent account admin can manage how many devices a subaccount can register or activate.
- Customers with subaccounts can now see a full list inventory of devices including parent and subaccounts and manage them from the primary parent account, or scope to any individual account.
Highlight Feature: Notification Center
We're pleaseed to announce some great changes to the Notification Center, including the following capabilities:
- You can receive notifications and messages for new firmware updates, upcoming releases, and more. Messages can be received both in-app and via email.
- If you don’t log into Digi Remote Manager very often, you can subscribe to receive daily emails with unread notifications. Notifications included in daily emails will be considered read when the email is sent.
