Actions - Adjusting the Trigger Threshold

Actions are tied to triggering thresholds which when breached trigger the configured Action. The location where the configuration is entered may be located in the Action Trigger tab itself, or it may be under the sensor’s Aware State configurations depending on the type of Action. Advanced Notifications are generally triggered by the Aware State configuration of a sensor whereas standard Sensor Reading notifications have a threshold configuration under the Action’s Trigger tab itself. You can review this article describing the differences between the two.

Editing a Sensor Reading notification trigger

To edit the Trigger of a Sensor Reading notification, you would edit this on the Action configuration itself. Most Actions are configured to be Sensor Reading notifications and so this applies to most. This can be done with the following steps:

Editing the Aware State trigger of a sensor for an Advanced Notification

When you have elected to trigger Actions based on the Aware State of a sensor using an Advanced Notification, you would edit the trigger conditions under the sensor’s Settings tab as per the following steps.

Review the Action Trigger:

  • Sign into the iMonnit Online Sensors Portal.
  • Select the Actions tab in the main navigation menu.
  • Select the name of the Action you wish to review.
  • Select the Trigger tab (two arrows pointing to the right).
    An Advanced Notification will have text explaining how it is triggered in correlation to a sensor’s Aware State.
  • Confirm you have selected the desired sensor as a Trigger Sensor.

Review the Sensor’s Aware State configuration:

  • Select Sensors in the main navigation menu.
  • Select the sensor for which you wish to edit the Aware State Configuration.
  • Select the Settings tab.
  • Edit the Aware State threshold/configuration.
  • Select Save (the setting will be applied upon the sensor’s subsequent Heartbeat).
