The All Devices summary page displays a scrollable list of all devices that you have subscribed from the Mobile Configuration page in SCADALynx. Data values over 24 hours old will be displayed in red on the All Devices screen. The device name is a hyperlink to the specific device page. If the device has any set points with unacknowledged alarms, a red icon will be displayed next to the device name. If the device has any active alarms that have already been acknowledged, a green icon will be displayed next to the device name. If a device has both acknowledged and unacknowledged active alarms then a red icon will be displayed to the right of the device hyperlink. Directly beneath the device name are the tags that you configured from the Mobile Configuration page in SCADALynx for each device along with their current values.
If a tag has a Lookup List configured, the mobile site will display the list text (i.e. True, Running, Closed, In Progress, etc.) in place of the numeric value.
