The device tag is the visual identifier for each Access Point (AP) and Station device that appears on airControl's maps.
Each device in airControl is shown as a product icon with a text label next to it. That label is its "device tag" and is composed by configurable device information. This information can be customized by each user so it's most useful to easily recognize devices at a glance.
The composition of device tags is configurable via the user's Settings panel in the "Device Tag" tab. Once set and saved, each new tag will be created automatically with the selected information. So for example, a user could select that for all APs the device tags will be comprised of the specific device's: IP + Device Name + SSID + Product. You can even choose to bold certain words to make them standout. Configure tags in a different way for Access Points and for Stations, with the information that is most relevant to each product.
How to Customize a Device Tag
