- RUT and TCR series devices will require a Serial number, LAN MAC address and the device's current password to be provided
- TRB series will ask for a Serial number, IMEI and the device's current password.
- Enable service on the device immediately after adding it.
Adding from file
From CSV File:
- Select add from file tab.
- Download the demo CSV file (The demo file will change when changing series) on RMS.
- Add your device information and prepare the CSV (see section Preparing CSV file for more details).

- When ready, click the Upload button. Keep in mind, adding more than a few hundred devices at once will take some time.
A pop-up indicating the number of new devices that have been added should appear on the screen:
Finishing adding process
After you've added devices on RMS, you'll need to connect them to RMS on the device itself. Navigate to Services -> Cloud solutions -> RMS.
- Press Connect to initiate the connection between the device and RMS.
- After a few moments you should see the state's status Connected.
- Note, that connect button after successful connection will change to Unregister, meaning that it is now fully registered in RMS.
Preparing CSV file
You can download an example file from here. Or you can prepare the CSV file for your list of devices manually. The list must be comprised of devices' LAN MAC addresses, (IMEIs for TRB) Serial numbers, Name and Password columns. You must save it as a CSV file. You can create/edit CSV files with programs like Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice Calc, or a simple text editor like Notepad, which we'll use for this example.
Create a new text file and set the order of device parameters in the first line. For example:
Single entry for single device consists of the device's LAN MAC address (or IMEI), serial number and password separated by commas (,). Each line should contain information about a single device (see example below).
- Do not forget to save your file as *.csv.
- If you are editing the file with Notepad. Click the "Save As" option. Then next to "Save as type", choose "All Files" and add the .csv extension next to the file name.
- If you're using Linux, you can add the same extension to the file name after saving the file the regular way).
Actions using CSV files
CSV (Comma Separated Values) is a simple file format used to store tabular data. This file must contain a serial number / MAC address (both Serial number and MAC address can be used interchangeably but not simultaneously), and a parameter you're configuring, all separated by a separation symbol. Each device must be in a separate line.
