Create a Custom Alert

Follow

You can create Custom Alerts Rules to notify you when a condition you are monitoring has reached a specific threshold. For example, you may want to know when the outdoor temperature sensor in your backyard has reported a reading above a specific degree.

The Alert Builder guides you through creating a Custom Alert - including setting the condition that results in an alert, assigning the sensor that is located in the area you are monitoring, and selecting the contacts that are to receive a notification when an alert is activated.

NOTE: To create an alert for a sensor, the sensor must be linked to a Connection Device.
