"Private" devices are mostly used for private parking spaces or individual usage. Think of it as a private device that only specific people can turn On/Off.
Plugzio users that are not specifically granted access to a "Private" device will be denied access while trying to activate the device.
Benefits Of "Private" Devices:
Management can control/monitor usage to a specific device that needs to be used for a specific purpose. Such as an outlet in the lobby that should only be used by the cleaning crew and not anyone else.
