First select "Select installation location" tick box
Using the location marker provided by Google, drag and drop to the exact location of the device. The GPS co-ordinates are provided by Google Maps API and can be shown within the JSON object of the device. This can also be used for GPS based targeting even though the location is static.
Tags allow you to set identifiers on the installation that can be used for Searching Installations. An example is to specify the city, and the street as show below. You could use tags to add your own internal system ID to the installation, allowing you to easily tie this up with your existing inventory management system. This could be a serial number, MAC address, or your existing id system.
There are a range of advanced options that are not visible to the regular user that can override lower level settings
Connect Box options
Allows you to map a USB based keyboard, or USB based motion sensor that emulates a key stroke to a Sequence or Channel. For example if you plugged a keyboard into your Android device and pressed button 1, so long as you have a channel linked to the device it will change the display to whatever is specified against Button 1. The example below shows Button 1 linked to "example3" channel. If these options are not available to you in your Installation Editor, you must contact your Administrator.
If you are using Connect Box hardware, you might have a motion sensor you can connect. If you are not using Connect Box hardware, you will need to emulate a key stroke (1-9) with motion sensor
Edit advanced options
