Algo Device Management Platform
The Algo Device Management Platform is a powerful tool to simplify the process of managing, monitoring, and maintaining Algo devices from any location.

The Algo Device Management Platform (ADMP) is a cloud-based device management solution to manage, monitor, and configure Algo IP endpoints from any location. Devices can be easily grouped via a tagging functionality, allowing devices to be coded by district, department, and/or function to easily oversee many devices. Devices can be supervised for connectivity, and issue email-based notifications should devices go offline, allowing for a real-time overview of device status.
Device management activities include:
• Push configuration: either full config files or dedicated settings (i.e. volume control)
• Troubleshoot devices: reboot and activate test tones
• Upgrade to latest device firmware: search for and update the firmware with one click.
The ADMP allows users to monitor all Algo devices for general status, connectivity, and health. Should an Algo device become disconnected for any reason, an email-based notification system will automatically send an alert to the registered user.
To simplify monitoring, a single-pane dashboard is available, providing users with key data about their Algo endpoints, including the following:
- the number of devices connected,
- the number of devices monitored,
- the different products being monitored,
- and any firmware upgrades available.
Users can also upload devices to the ADMP and place them in an unmonitored state. This is often done for devices that are not actively deployed, such as lab units or spare units, and thus the status is not relevant to the user.
Multiple activities can be performed on Algo IP endpoints registered to the ADMP to help manage each device for device organization, device configuration/firmware, and device troubleshooting.
There are a few ways to sort devices, such as organizing devices in ascending or descending order, using the search functionality to find devices based on device name, product name, or product type, and using tags to group devices by color, location, or client.
Users are also able to easily push a configuration file for a single device or a selected group of devices. A single action can also be performed such as changing the volume of a speaker. Users also have the choice to upgrade firmware or select a specified firmware version.
Configuring Algo devices require that the ADMP be running firmware version 5.2 or higher. A user will need to also add the ADMP Account ID to the web interface of each Algo device.
With the exception of the 8180G, 8128G1, and 8028G1 units, the vast majority of Algo IP endpoints are compatible with the ADMP.
All InformaCast variants of the above Algo products are also compatible with the ADMP.
Overseeing Algo Devices
The Algo Device Management Platform simplifies the process of managing, monitoring, and maintaining Algo devices. It is particularly useful for organizations managing multiple devices spanned over a large facility or campus, or for a service provider who manages devices for multiple end users and in multiple locations. The ADMP allows users to easily see if a device goes offline and respond as needed by either refreshing the device or making a visit to the site to inspect the device. Since the health of each device can be checked and actions can be performed remotely, such as initiating a mass upgrade, the ADMP is ideal for reducing the number of visits service providers need to make to each site, which subsequently reduces travel and labor costs.
