!!!PLEASE READ THE HELP ON THE "THRESHOLD DETAILS" WEB PAGE!!!

The "THRESHOLD DETAILS" web page is the single most complicated web page on our web site and therefor has the best help if any of our web pages.  Everything you need to know about creating alarm rules is in the help for that page.  

The OmniSense remote monitoring alarms are configured via the monitoring web site.  The alarms can be as simple as "alert me when temperature exceeds 80 degrees" or more complicated such as "alert me when temperature exceeds 20 degrees for at least 10 minutes but only enforce this alarm rule Monday through Friday between 8 AM and 5 PM".  Alarm rules can be applied to all sensors that report a given data type (ie all sensors that report temperature) or to a single sensor only.  Multiple alarm rules can be applied to the same sensor.  

So how do you create alarm rules you ask?  Alarm rules are specific to a job site.  Log into your account and from the "Job Sites" page and click on the "Alarms" button for the job site of interest.  That takes you to the "Alarms Dashboard" page where you create and edit alarm rules as well as see all currently active alarms.  Click on "Add a New Threshold" button to create a new alarm rule.
All alarm rules will have a high on, high off, low off, low on values.   Click on the "help" button for a great picture of how these 4 thresholds are applied.  

CUSTOMIZING ALARM EMAIL TEXT:
When creating a new alarm rule you can customize the alarm email subject and body.
- Alarm Subject leave this field blank unless you want a custom alarm email subject. Use the special variable %status if you want to substitute the alarm's ON or OFF status into the email subject and use the special variable %desc if you want to substitute the sensor description into the email subject. This will be used for both regular emails and text messages if enabled.

- Alarm Body leave this field blank unless you want a custom alarm email body. Use the special variable %status if you want to substitute the alarm's ON or OFF status into the email body and use the special variable %desc if you want to substitute the sensor description into the email body. This will be used for both regular emails and text messages if enabled.
