Instructions for temporarily pausing notifications from a single sensor or group of sensors in iMonnit.

While sensor alerts are one of the primary reasons for using Monnit wireless sensors, there may be times when you need to temporarily stop notifications from being sent from a sensor or group of sensors.

Temporarily disable notifications from a single sensor.

To temporarily disable notifications from a single sensor, click on "Overview" in the main navigation, then click on the sensor you want to work with to expand its detail view.

With the detail view open, click on the "Notifications" tab to view the notifications settings for the sensor.

The second section down provides a way to temporarily disable notifications from the viewed sensor. To stop notifications choose from the options provided. You can pause notifications until a set date and time, you can pause notifications for one hour or you can disable notifications until you choose to re-enable them.

Remember, this function only applies to notifications being sent from the viewed sensor. This will not affect notifications from other sensors even if the notification is shared across multiple sensors.

If you want to pause a notification across all sensors that share it, you can click the "On/Off" switch to the left of the notification in the assigned notifications area.

Alternately, you can disable a notification for all sensors that share it, by turning it off in the main notifications section of the portal. To do this, click on "Notifications" from the main navigation and click the "On/Off" switch next to the notification to toggle the notification on or off.
