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.
