Once the WEFC's are powered on and begin communication with the WNC1800 Gateway, the Number of Online Devices will increase until all WEFC's on your network are discover. If a WEFC stops communicating for any reason, the Number of Online devices will decrease and the Number of Offline devices will increase.

Note: It is not usually necessary to use the Rediscover Devices button, but this action may be required if a WEFC has been permanently removed from the PAN, if alarms and status indications do not self-clear, firmware has been updated, or new applications have been downloaded to the controllers.
