Visible Devices - This defines how many devices can be viewed within the control without needing to scroll to view more. [1 - 20]
- Device Name (Display Name)

Use the '+' button to add more devices to be monitored to this module.
|Green||Remote device can be found and is responding to ping requests (Response time in ms shown)|
|Amber||Remote device is being send data but is not responding|
|Red||Remote device cannot be found|
Please note that response times (green status) will only be shown if the remote device accepts ping requests.
Tip: to check for an internet connection use the IP address of a known reliable website in the device watcher (i.e. Google: http://126.96.36.199)
Please note faster refresh intervals may see higher CPU usage, reduce battery life and increase network traffic, set a value best suited to your use case
