The following table describes the settings.

Setting Description

Device Name User-defined name of the device. Feel free to call the device whatever you want.
Offline Alert If checked, the SlitherSense platform will generate an alert if this device has not published data within the last six hours.

Data Storage

The SlitherSense system retains 1 month (four weeks) of data per-device by default. This setting is configurable however credits will be consumed per-month by doing so at a rate of (1 * data-storage-months) per month. Here's an example of how this works:

  1. You add/claim a device.
  2. You set the data retention duration to 6 months for this one device.
  3. You will be charged 6 credits per month to store that data for this device on the first of the next month. The minimum data retention duration is 1 month (four weeks, 28 days) which will consume one credit per month for that device.
