Device tags can be used to group or classify your devices depending on your needs. You can use tags to identify where are the beacons located within a venue, what are they being used for or any purpose you might give them. Think of the device tags as virtual labels for your beacons.
You can create a maximum of 20 tags per device. All tags must be lower case, include no space or special characters and can't be longer than 32 characters. If you try to create this tag: "Front door&window" the resulting tag will be 'frontdoorwindow' as the panel will transform the input value into an accepted one.
