As you grow your fleet, you can add new devices at any time.
For flexibility, you have the following options for adding new devices:
Use the activation link in your order email.
Activate devices during the initial setup (see Step 4: Activate Samsara Hardware and Accessories).
Activate devices from the Samsara dashboard as described in the workflow below.
Streamline Hardware Installation with the Samsara Fleet App to reduce the activation and installation time to minutes.
To activate devices, you must be assigned a Full Admin role or a custom role that allows Device Activation.
To activate new devices from the Samsara dashboard:
Select the Settings icon ( ) at the bottom of your Fleet menu to view dashboard settings.
On the top right, click Activate Devices.
Enter the Hardware Serial for each device, pressing Enter after each entry.
You can locate the serial number on the back of each physical Samsara device.
When done, click Activate devices.
If you manage multiple organizations, you are prompted to confirm the organization for which you want to activate devices. Click Yes if the organization is correct. Otherwise, click Cancel to then switch to the desired organization and repeat the previous steps.
After the activation process is complete, click View dashboard to view your newly activated devices.
From the Settings > Devices page, select the appropriate tab for your Gateways, Cameras, or Sensors.
