Windows Desktop devices contain multiple attributes such as hardware, OS, certificates, patches, apps, and more. Track these attributes in the Workspace ONE UEM console with the Sensors feature.
Devices have a huge number of attributes associated with them. This number increases when you start tracking the different apps, OS versions, patches, and other continually changing variables. It can be difficult to track all of these attributes to ensure your devices meet your needs.
Workspace ONE UEM tracks a limited number of device attributes by default. With Sensors, you can track the specific device attributes you want. For example, you can create a sensor that track the driver details for a mouse driver, the warranty information for the OS, and the registry value for your internal apps. Sensors allows you to track all of these across your devices. Another use case for Sensors involves creating a sensor that reports a "Retired Date" so you can keep track of devices that are no longer managed by your server.
Taking the tracking functionality to the next logical step, Workspace ONE UEM integrates Sensors with smart groups so you can provision apps, profiles, baselines, and more to your devices based on specific attributes. With a compliance policy, you can enforce actions when a device attriubute changes value.
When configuring Sensors, you can control when the device reports the sensor data back to the Workspace ONE UEM console with triggers. These triggers can be a scheduled time based on the Windows Sample Schedule or specific device events such as login/logout, startup, or switching users.
The value of each sensor is determined by the PowerShell script you create. For examples of what scripts you can create, see PowerShell Script Examples for Sensors.
