To Edit a Device’s Properties


  1. From the Device’s tab, select Edit button next to any device to allow the device settings to the modified.
    When editing a device's settings, additional options include Device Subtype and Network/Farm ID. (The Network/Farm ID setting is related to the hardware bedside monitors. This data detects alarms and vitals from the device. The Farm ID is necessary for telemetry devices because the central station is part of a farm of other centrals. The Farm ID allows any central in the monitor room to detect a roaming telemetry device.)
  2. Select Save.



You cannot edit a device that is in use. If the edit button is dithered, that means the device is currently assigned to a patient. If you need to change something on a device in use, please contact Support.
