Learn everything you need to know about setting up alarms and editing, deleting or viewing the settings per sensor in RmoniWeb.


Alarm configuration


The RmoniWeb platform has several menu-items that are dedicated for our temperature monitoring functionality. Navigate to Sensors and then to Alarm configuration. All configured alarms are shown in this overview. The red / green dot indicates whether the alarm configuration is active (green dot) or inactive (red dot). Two items will be explained below: 

  1. Alarm configuration
  2. Alarm settings per sensor



1. Alarm configuration

All already created alarm configurations are shown in this overview. Select a configuration to see more information about the configuration on the right side of the screen: 

 

  • Alarm settings
    The configured alarm settings are shown here.

  • Alarm limits
    The alarm limit is shown here.

  • Message
    The message that will be sent when a sensor goes in to alarm is shown here.

  • Recipients
    The recipient(s) that will receive an alarm are shown here.

  • Number of linked sensors
    The total number of linked sensors to this alarm profile are shown here.

 

Click on the button Add profile to create a new alarm profile. Creating a alarm profile consists out of four steps:

  1. Alarm settings
  2. Alarm limits
  3. Messages
  4. Recipients

 


1. Alarm settings

The first step consists out of selecting the alarm settings. The following information is obligated:

  • Profile name
    Enter the name of the profile. This is shown in the alarm configuration overview and also in the Alarms overview.

  • Organizational unit
    Select an organizational unit. This steps determines which sensors can be linked to the alarm profile.

  • Type
    Choose between an measurement alarm or system alarm. 
    • Measurement alarm - A measurement alarm is used to check whether the measured value does not exceed the set alarm value. 
    • System alarm - A system alarm is used to check whether there is an invalid measurement, a sensor goes offline, the battery is low and/or if there is low signal strength.

  • Sensor type
    This option is only shown when Measurement alarm is selected. The sensor type (E.g. temperature) can be selected here.

  • Delay
    Select an delay if necessary. This is usually used to prevent an alarm from being triggered as soon as a cooler/freezer goes in to defrost mode.

  • Mode 
    This option is only shown when Measurement alarm is selected. Determine whether the alarm should sent out messages always, or just once.

  • Level
    Determine the level of the alarm. This can be a warning (less important) or an alarm.

  • Confirm when out of alarm
    Check this box to receive a message when the sensor(s) go out of alarm.


2. Alarm limit

  • Measurement alarm
    While entering the alarm limit for a measurement alarm, there are a few options:
    • Value between
    • Value outside
    • Value smaller
    • Value smaller or equal
    • Value greater
    • Value greater or equal

  • System alarm
    While entering the alarm limit for a system alarm, there are a few options:
    • Alarm on invalid measurement
    • Alarm when a sensor is offline
    • Alarm on low battery percentage (enter the battery percentage)
    • Alarm on low signal strength (enter the signal strength)


3. Messages

The third step consists out of selecting the message content. There are three options:

  • Maximum number of messages
    Select the maximum number of messages that should be send for this alarm profile per alarm. This can be used to make sure that users do not get flooded with messages.

  • Subject
    Enter the subject. Use text and/or add one or several labels. These labels will be entered automatically in the messages based on the sensor the alarm/message is for.

  • Message
    Enter the message. Use text and/or add one or several labels. These labels will be entered automatically in the messages based on the sensor the alarm/message is for.


4. Recipients

The fourth and last step consists out of selecting recipients. This is optional, the alarm profile can be saved right away. Recipients can be added by using the Add recipients button. A pop-up will be shown and one or more recipients can be selected. In this pop-up is also shown what the recipient type and destination is.  Press Save to save the alarm profile.


As soon as an alarm profile is created, sensor can be added. Select the alarm profile and at the right side of the screen some additional information will be shown. Select Add sensors. All available sensor (based on the type, sensor type and organizational unit) are shown here. Select one or more sensors and click on Save to link the sensors to the profile.


The button Actions enables users to:

  • Edit the alarm profile
  • Deactivate the alarm profile
  • Delete the alarm profile


2. Alarm settings per sensor


The Alarm settings per sensor overview shows all sensors the user may see. Per sensor the organizational unit and alarm profile is shown. On each of these option can be filtered. Each sensors can be expanded and the configured alarm profile is shown. 

 

As soon as a sensor is expanded, the alarm profile, type and configured value are shown. The alarm profile can be deleted from here as well.
