Device groups

In this article, you will get information about Groups in Xopero ONE. A group is a virtual container with a unique name that allows the user to aggregate devices assigned to the system. One device can be assigned manually by the user to one or many groups.

In general, groups are used to manage devices. Using them, you do not need to manage them separately, but you can manage them from the group level. To one group, you can add an infinite amount of devices and make your work with them easier.
