Asset Tracking Only Template

Clients may have mixed requirements and environments, including devices that will be switched off for long periods and that you do not need to fully manage. Rather than delete the agent and remove the device, it is often easier and better to move these devices into Asset Tracking Only mode. This way they stay in your Dashboard inventory, and you can easily reinstate monitoring and features at any time.

To simplify this process for existing device you can choose to select an Asset Tracking Only template when applying a new template
