All active alarm types display in the Alarms window—threshold alarms, device alarms, and system alarms; however, only the alarms for the Locations you are permitted to view are visible. Use the Alarms window to acknowledge alarms, and print or export alarm reports.

You can view and acknowledge threshold and device alarms in the Sites or Overview windows, on the Location Alarms tab.

Active and Inactive Alarms

  • Check the Status column to determine if an alarm is in an active alarm state, or was in an alarm state and is now inactive.
  • Both active and inactive alarms that require an acknowledgement display in the grid.
  • Inactive alarms that do not require acknowledgement do not display in the grid.
  • The option to acknowledge all inactive alarms is restricted to members of the default viewLinc Administrator's group.

Alarm Acknowledgement

  • Check the Acknowledgement column to determine if an alarm requires acknowledgement, and if it has been acknowledged.
  • Threshold alarms can be acknowledged if you have acknowledge alarms permission for the Location.
  • Device alarms can be acknowledged if you have acknowledge alarms permission for at least one Location linked to the device.
  • System alarms can only be acknowledged by members of the default viewLinc Administrators group.
