22 Other Types of Alerts
There are two other types of Alerts that may require your response.
- The second Alert is a Rule Violation Alert. This alert is issued when a Device crosses a geofence or boundary and a Feature Rule is violated. The violation triggers a black Rule Alert that appears on the Base Map (see below). If configured properly, the Alert is also be sent to stakeholders in the form of Text Messages and Emails.
- The third type of Alert is a Status Alert related to sensor changes in a Device. Status Alerts let you know that something has occurred with the Device that needs to be noted. These Alerts appear with yellow bars on the screen and in Device grids when activated.
Below three simultaneous Status Alarm have been activated. The first in an INPUT alarm. That means an external trigger connected to the Device has activated. The second alert is an active LIGHT Alarm, which means someone has opened the Device and is tampering with it. The third Alarm is a TILT Alarm, which means the Device is moving.
- These Alerts appear on-screen, and in the DEVICES grid in the Notifications column (as seen below). Each type of Alert has its own icon to let you know the situation in the field has changed.
