Use the Events window to analyze events and determine when and where particular problems occurred, or to diagnose a situation that requires troubleshooting. All viewLinc system activity is treated as an event, and all events are tracked in the events log. Data tracked as an event is different from monitored data logged in a device. Here are some key differences:

  • Events occur within the viewLinc system: alarms, alarm acknowledgements, system configuration changes, general system notifications.
  • Devices track the changes within the environment being monitored: temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, or voltage.

To ensure viewLinc continuously monitors and stores event log history, event validation alarms notify you if the viewLinc event log has been tampered with externally.
