Alarm System Notifications

The system will send notifications to E-Mail and Slack. They will look like this:


09/26/2019 6:40PM 425 Alarm, Ar-1 CCISD, Pt-4 LC Reception - Panic Button

Now, let's take this apart to see what each section does.

ColorPurpose
RedTime the event occurred.
BlueAccount this occurred for and event. Alarm is when something occurs, point restore is when it goes back to normal. 
OrangeThe area in which this event occurred. Some locations only have one area. Others have multiple.
BlackThe name and number of the point in fault. This is the place in the building with the issue. Do not ignore this section. 


For motion and door alerts you will receive both a "point in alarm" notification and a "point restored" notification. "Point in alarm" indicates when the event first started and "point restored" indicates when it stopped occurring. If this time is very short (about a minute) this is most likely a false alert.
