Triggering an Action
To trigger an Action:
Step 1: Navigate to the Devices tab under Device Management
Step 2: Select the list of Devices you want to trigger the Action on by clicking on the checkboxes in each Device row
Step 3: Click on the Action button you want to trigger. In this screenshot, we have selected two Devices and triggered the 'lock' Action on them. It will ask for confirmation before triggering the Action.
The Action will be sent to the selected Devices now. If the device is offline when the Action is triggered, the system will retry sending Actions to the device every 5s. On the Device, you can receive Actions using the Bytebeam SDK and send progress back to the cloud.
You monitor the progress of the Action from the Devices tab itself
Optionally, you can also monitor the progress of the Action from the Action status tab, see: Monitor the progress of Actions
To trigger actions on all Devices, select the all check box at the top of the devices table:
This will send the action to all Devices including those not being shown on the current page on the UI.
You can also use the search box to the top right to filter Devices before sending an action.
