The device location is considered more important than the device itself because it can provide valuable insights into the performance and history of multiple devices that have occupied that location over time.
For example, if a device location has had a high number of device replacements, the information can be analyzed to identify patterns or issues that may not be apparent from analyzing a single device. For example:
If the power usage or repeated lamp failure is high in a low traffic area, it could indicate that the light is no longer motion controlled, causing it to burn 24/7.
If there have been multiple battery failures in a particular location, it could be due to high temperatures in that area, which would warrant a replacement of the device with one that is more heat-resistant.
Excessive device replacement at a specific location could be caused by physical collisions and would warrant a review of the location.
By analyzing information from multiple devices that have occupied the same location, it allows for a more comprehensive understanding of the performance and history of the devices, and can help identify potential issues and solutions.
