Managing Ambianic Edge devices

One or more Ambianic Edge devices can be managed via the Ambianic UI app. Each Ambianic Edge device operates completely autonomously. The Ambianic UI provides a convenient way to configure individual Ambianic Edge devices, inspect their timelines and provide user feedback to AI tasks for on-device training.

Adding a New Device

To add a new device in the UI, go to Settings > My Devices > Add Device.

You can add a new Ambianic Edge device in the UI app either via local WiFi network discovery or directly via device Peer ID.

Local Discovery

In order for Ambianic UI to discover a local Ambianic Edge device, the UI browser and edge device must be connected on the same local network sharing the same Internet router and public IP address. That enables them to join a shared discovery room in the Ambianic Plug-and-Play web service. See diagram below.

If this is the case, choose Local and pick from the list of discovered local devices. They will be listed by their unique Peer ID number for privacy protection.

Direct Peer ID Connection

If you are connecting to a device that is not on the same local network as the browser runnning Ambnianic UI, you will need to obtain the Peer ID of the remote device. Pick Remote in the Add Device wizard and enter the remote Peer ID.
