Manage your Alert Contacts

Follow

From Alert Contacts you can manage how you and others are notified when an alert is activated. Once you have created your alert contacts, the contacts can be added to your Alerts.

If you want your friends and family to receive alert notifications, simply add them as a contact and assign their contact to the Alert. They do not need a My AcuRite account to receive email or text notifications.

Alert Contact guidelines

Be sure to set the Default Contact - when you create a new Custom Alert, the Default Contact is automatically added to the Alert. For example, if you want to receive all of your alert notifications to a specific email address, set the contact as your Default Contact. By default, all System Alert notifications are sent to your Default Contact.

Do you want to receive both email and text notifications? - create two contacts, one with your email address and one with your mobile phone number for text messages.

Need to change your email address or phone number? - simply change it from the alert contact and the update is applied to all of the Alerts assigned to the contact.

Note

Push Notifications from the AcuRite app are enabled directly in an Alert.
