-NEMS CheckIn tells the NEMS Cloud API that your NEMS server is online. If your NEMS server goes offline (stops reporting in), the NEMS Cloud Services server will send you an email letting you know it lost contact with your NEMS server.+===Features===
  
-A total of up to 5 notifications will be sent should your NEMS server fail to check in. Notices are sent at intervals of:+  * View your NEMS Linux state information from anywhere. 
 +  * Open NEMS TV Dashboard for any of your NEMS Servers from anywhere. 
 +  * Connect multiple NEMS Servers to a single dashboard ​to be able to see the state of multiple distributed ​NEMS Servers on one screen. 
 +  * Extend NEMS Warning Light and NEMS GPIO Extender ​to support multiple NEMS Servers and be geographically located anywhere ​in the world.

 +===Frequently Asked Questions===
 +
 +**Why do I have to enter my NEMS HWID, NEMS Cloud Services Key and Decryption Password to login? Can't you make it so I can create a username and password and login that way?**
 +
 +Your NEMS HWID and NEMS Cloud Services Key authenticates your session. Your Decryption Password on the other hand allows NEMS Cloud Services to decrypt your NEMS State information. For your safety, your decryption password is never stored on the server, and only you know it. I will not create a mechanism for your private decryption password to be associated with your account. You must enter it every time you login, since it is never stored within NEMS Cloud Services.
 +
 +**Since I have to enter my decryption password only once per session, how can you say it is not stored?**
 +
 +When you enter your encryption password, it is transmitted over your browser'​s SSL connection to the NEMS Cloud Services server. There, it is not stored in the session. Rather, your password is salted and hashed, and this hash is what is stored in the session. Once your session has expired, your hash is discarded.
