The alerts link lists all your alerts for the specific device. From there you can also create sensor alerts or device alerts. Here are details about all the settings and options.
Add new sensor alert:
Choose sensor – Select which sensor to alert should apply to.
Alert name – Add a name for the alert.
Alert Frequency – With Alert frequency set to “Only send once”, an alert is sent the first time a sensor reading exceeds its threshold, then optionally again, if/when the sensor reading returns to normal (see All Clear). With the Alert Frequency feature enabled, an alert is sent at the specified interval for the entirety of the sensor’s alarm period. Since Alert Frequency can generate many alerts, it requires an additional charge of $5.00/month/device, contact us to upgrade your plan.
Acknowledgement – If the box is unchecked, alerts will be sent at specified interval until the sensor returns to normal. If the box is checked, alerts will stop being sent once a user logs into Insights and Acknowledges the alert, or when the sensor returns to normal.
Alert Type – Depends on the sensor type. For device alerts only: For USB and WiFi devices, Missed Report will be the only alert available. For Zpoint Node and Cellular devices, Low battery will be available. AC Power Lost is only available for the Cellular device.
Alert Types for Device Alerts Only-
Alert Threshold – Select the threshold that will be used to determine whether an alert should be generated. This threshold, along with the current reading will be displayed in the alert.
Alarm Delay – By default alarm delay is set to 1. Alternately, this feature can be used to delay alerts until a sensor has exceeded its threshold for the specified number of intervals. If a device’s monitoring interval is 5 minutes, and the alarm delay is set to 3 intervals, an alert will be sent out after 15 minutes of the sensor remaining in alarm.
Send Notifications – By default notifications will be sent at all times. If Nights is selected, and the start and stop times are 5:00pm and 9:00am, respectively, alerts will only be sent between 5:00pm and 9:00am. If Nights and Weekends was selected in the above example, alerts would also be sent between 5:00pm on Friday evening and 9:00am Monday morning.
Notification Types – Alert notifications can be sent by email and SMS (text message). Additionally, Plus and Pro Plan users can send phone call alerts. For international calls, contact us.
Save Alert- Click when done to save your alert.
