Setting up over/under alarms in your Dashboard

Alarms are set through what we call “Detectors”. The idea is that you set a number of Detectors to notify you whenever a specific pattern is identified, for example a machine’s load demand greater than 0 overnight indicating it has been left on.
On your Dashboard’s Home tab, click on “Notifications Settings” and “Customized Detection”.


There you can see the list of existing detectors and you can add new detectors by clicking on the “New Detector” button. This will pop up a new window where you can select your data point and configure notifications to be generated whenever specific conditions on the load demand are met (over/under for specific time period or days).


You can set whether you want to receive notifications on your dashboard homepage feed only or via email and sms.
