Alarms settings

Alarm settings for automatically measured values are set for individual profiles and will be valid for all Eupry WiFi Data Loggers which are located in that profile. The settings are configured in the alerts menu, which is brought up by clicking on the bell icon in the icon menu bar as shown below: 

 

Choose Alarm Type

Here you are able to choose whether you would like to configure temperature alarms or humidity alarms. Both sets of alarms are configured in exactly the same way, the only difference is that temperature, alarms are configured in °C, whereas humidity alarms are configured in %RH.

Set an alarm

The standard alarm is an alarm that consists of critical high and critical low and it gets triggered when a single measurement is above or below the set limits. If activated, alarms are active, and SMS and mail alarms will be sent according to alarm settings. Furthermore, a valid internet connection is required, and the Data Loggers must be paired with the WiFi. Otherwise, no alarms will be sent via SMS and mail.

 

 

Alarms via SMS and email can be turned off for a specific user in a particular profile by following this procedure:

1. Go to the location view of the desired profile.

2. Click the bell icon to turn off alarms via SMS and email from that profile.

3. The disabling of alarms via SMS and email is specific to the user disabling alarms, and alarms will still be present in the Web App and exported reports.

Grey zones

Greyzone alarms are defined by a threshold value and a period. Before a greyzone alarm triggers, the Data Logger value must be outside the greyzone boundaries for more than the greyzone duration, after which an alert is generated. If the Data Logger value is outside the greyzone boundaries for less than the greyzone duration, and the Data Logger value returns to within limits again, the greyzone duration is reset, and no alarm is generated. The greyzone durations and limits are set in the Alerts Menu.

 

 

After a change has been made to alarm settings, the WiFi Data Loggers are updated locally the next time they connect. An update to the local parameters of the Data Logger can be forced by pushing the ‘e’ button on the Data Logger with a valid internet connection.

When the Data Logger detects an alarm condition, it will establish a connection to the WiFi it is configured to, and send the alarm message to the Eupry Cloud. If no valid connection can be made, measurements are kept in local storage, and the connection is later established. No alarms will be given via SMS or email if a valid connection cannot be made. 

Alarm settings for Internal and External Sensor

An Eupry Wi-Fi Data Logger can have a Sensor or Probe connected, which is called an External Sensor. If an External Sensor is connected to the Data Logger, the alarm settings will apply to the External Sensor, since this sensor is your primary sensor. If there is no External Sensor connected to the Data Logger, then the alarm settings only apply to the Internal Sensor. It is possible to view both temperatures in the graph even though you only get alarms from either the internal or external sensor.
