Policy by Device Model

A Policy enables you to manage a group of devices (of the same model) with a single configuration and software level, simplifying the management of a large group of devices.
There is a single policy for each device model associated with the open account, along with basic policy information. To view or modify a policy (Manage > Policies > Device Model), simply select the Device Model Policy and view or adjust the settings as needed.
Note: When a new device is onboarded, it will be automatically added to the Policy for that Device Model. If there is no Policy for that Device Model, Poly Lens will create one.

For detailed information on managing the following lists, see List Managment.

Device ModelThe model type of the Policy.
Device CountThe number of devices in this Policy.
Device imageAn image of the the device for quick identification.
