Manually add a device

You can also choose to manually add a device to Device Cloud. 
In order to manually add a device to Device Cloud, you will need to perform a manual search by entering a unique device identifier which can be any of the following:
MAC address
The MAC address of your Digi device may be found on the bottom of your unit.
Depending on the product, you may find the MAC address under the Home (opening) page (please see picture below) or under Administration > System Information.
Please note that for TransPorts, this MAC Address should be Ethernet 0's MAC Address.  This should be kept in mind especially when dealing with TransPorts with multiple NICs.


IMEI number (for Digi Connect Tank only)
The IMEI number is only for the Digi Connect Tank. Other Digi cellular products you should not use the IMEI number.  Non-cellular Digi products will not have an IMEI number.
The IMEI number of your Digi Connect Tank may be found on a sticker on the back of the unit.


Device ID
The Device ID of some Digi devices may be found in the WebUI of the unit on the Home (opening) page (please see picture below).
