System Sentry Alarms Creation

You unleash the power of a System Sentry device point when you configure alarms for the point.

You use the same process to configure alarms for a System Sentry point as you use for any other device point. You also receive the same benefits from the configuration.

When a point goes into your pre-defined alarm state, you can:

Trigger a visual or audio alarm

Transmit the alarm through a pager when you are not near the system

Alert any roles (individuals doing specified tasks) who should be alerted

 Tip: When in doubt, log the point's data when the system is in a quiet state. The resulting baseline data can help you define when the point is in an alarm state.
