Remote device management: network-wide updates, data insights and control. Digi Remote Manager delivers centralized visibility and automates processes at your command, with actionable 24/7 remote monitoring.

Automated Network Monitoring
Automated Network Monitoring

To keep tabs on dozens, hundreds or thousands of active connected devices requires network monitoring software. Human eyes can't keep up. With Digi RM remote monitoring tools, you're in command. As your IoT device management platform, Digi RM watches your network for disruptions and intrusions, and lets you know when you need to take action. Set alerts for important conditions. Get reports on network performance. Check on any device, anywhere, anytime.

Configuration Management
Configuration Management

Digi Remote Manager has what other IoT device management platforms don't: the ability to configure all of your devices at once, make individual configuration changes, and still manage those specialized configurations in groups. Create group and individual configurations. Deploy rapidly and accurately. Let Digi RM monitor device security.

Firmware Updates
Firmware Updates

Today's IoT devices are smarter, more feature rich, and have more tasks to perform at the edge. And they are not static. You may need to update firmware to enhance functionality, download custom scripts, keep your devices in compliance with corporate security policies, or deploy patches for threats to IoT security. Digi Remote Manager puts the network management tools in your hands to deploy firmware updates or send files to your devices in minutes, even if you have a network of many thousands of devices. Manage your dynamic network with a few clicks. Keep your devices secure.

Edge Computing
Detection and Troubleshooting

Digi RM is always on, even during your network manager’s off hours. As your network monitoring solution, Digi RM lets you know when issues arise, sending alerts and delivering reports so your team can rest easy. At any time, they can gain the insights needed on the health of the entire network or individual devices and remotely troubleshoot, test and reboot devices as needed. Put network monitoring tools to work for you, so you can work smarter.
