The EMS Remote Management Tools are intended primarily for System supervisors and expert users.
They provide an HTTP link to data in the EMS database, allowing hardware devices, at remote locations, to be configured and associated with an existing EMS System.
Once a device has been added to EMS via the Web Interface the Remote Management Tools can be used to perform configuration tasks on that device such as Synchronising, Calibrating and Merging.
