Account

Here you can see to which account the unit belongs (if you have any access to this account).

Units with the same ID within a certain type of device type, as well as units or drivers with the same phone numbers, cannot exist in the system. If you are attempting to create a unit with an ID or a phone number that is already in use in the system, a special alert is displayed. However, the unit is created anyway but with empty ID or phone number values which can be edited later.

Unit parameters can be set in different measurement systems. When creating new units, the system of measures for them is taken from the settings of the current user. Therefore, to set a system of measurement for a unit, it is necessary to select a corresponding system of measurement in the settings of the current user.
