      Tip  
      • In the Testing Connection dialog box, you can see the results of testing and information about how to resolve any issues.
      • You can continue to add an online device without resolving failed checks if the device passes the IP address check.
    4. Click OK.
    5. Select the wireless device type from the Device Type pull-down.
    6. Configure the slots as needed to match the module configuration on your physical device.
    7. Click Next.
    8. Give the device a descriptive name in the Device Name text field.
    Connect to an offline device
    1. If your device is offline, ensure that the Connect to an offline device option is selected and click Next.
    2. Select your device type from the Device Type pull-down.
    3. Configure the slots as needed to match the module configuration on your physical device.

      If you need to update the module configuration in the web application at a later time, navigate to the Hardware tab of the specific device's configuration page.

    4. Click Next.
    5. Give the device a descriptive name in the Device Name text field.
    6. Once you have added an offline device, transfer a connection file to your offline device.
  4. Click OK and you will be automatically redirected to the Endpoints tab of the wireless monitoring device's configuration page.
  5. Click Add pull-down menu»Offline to add the endpoint as an offline device.

    Tip  

    If the endpoint is powered and within range of the wireless monitoring device, click Add to have your wireless monitoring device discover the endpoint.

  6. Enter the serial number of your endpoint, designate the endpoint type as Wireless Sensor for a MON-10411 or Wireless Device for a MON-10467, and click OK.
  7. In the Select Wireless Equipment dialog box, select a wireless equipment asset to associate the wireless device endpoint with and click OK to add your endpoint.

    Note  

    Remove the endpoint from its current equipment before adding the endpoint to the new equipment to change with which equipment the endpoint associates.

  8. Use the pull-down under Channel in the Endpoint configuration panel to assign which channels from the wireless gateway correspond to each sensor associated with the equipment.

    Note  

    If you have added more than one endpoint, you may need to resolve the collection time schedule by clicking Schedule and then Resolve All. If you do not resolve the collection time, wireless endpoints will spend additional time communicating with the gateway, which decreases endpoint battery life.

Now you have successfully added a wireless monitoring device and an endpoint to your InsightCM server. Wireless devices default to having one collection time. You can reconfigure collection time in the Collection tab of the wireless equipment's configuration panel.
