How to use the remote access/control for the DOSE-X?
This is also part 17 of the training course about DOSE-X.
This feature was released with firmware version V2.0.
The video manuscript provides a step-by-step guide on how to allow remote control on the DOSE-X system, enabling users to access and control the device from a web browser. The process involves initial setup and configuration in the system settings, making it easy for users to take active control of the device remotely.
To begin, users need to access the system settings and navigate to the "Network configurations" section. There, they must enable the remote control feature, which only needs to be done once. After enabling remote control, users can retrieve the IP address of the DOSE-X device.
With the IP address at hand, users can open their web browser and enter the IP address, resulting in a browser interface with a red border. Simultaneously, the DOSE X device will display a green border. Within the browser interface, there is a red cloud symbol marked as "blocked." Clicking on this symbol grants the user active control over the device, causing the border to change from red to green in the browser and vice versa on the DOSE-X device.
Once active control is established, users can perform various tasks directly from the browser interface, including conducting measurements and adjusting settings. The video emphasizes that the device itself will also display a notification indicating that someone else has taken control. While the device is under remote control, some actions, such as accessing measurement histories, are still possible on the physical device.
When the current user clicks on the green cloud symbol in either the browser or the device itself, the border turns into blue. This signifies that control is now available for anyone to take over. As an example, the video shows how the display on the device changes when someone else assumes control and conducts a measurement.
The manuscript highlights that only administrators have the privilege to take control when the device is already in use by someone else. Regular users, who are not administrators, do not have this capability and cannot take over control in such situations.
In conclusion, the video demonstrates the process of enabling and using remote control on the DOSE-X device, making it a useful tool for seamless and convenient device management. The ability to access and control the device remotely through a web browser provides greater flexibility and efficiency in carrying out measurements and adjusting settings.
