Alarm Configuration

This page goes over the properties that define an alarm. The headings correspond to headings on the page to create an alarm.

General

Name A friendly label to use within Hithub
Description Make any additional notes here
Status The status allows you to effectively turn off a sensor (on Hithub). With a status of "inactive", if any hits are attempted for the sensor, they will receive an HTTP 423 (Locked).

Trigger Criteria

Sensors Specify which sensors this alarm should observe events for
Number of Events The minimum number of events to find
Time frame The time frame to look for events relative to when the alarm runs. For example, if the alarm runs at 5:00 pm and the time frame is set to 10 minutes, then Hithub will look for events from 4:50 pm to 5:00 pm.

This also determines how often the alarm runs. Basically if the time frame is under 1 hour, the alarm will be checked on those intervals. If the time frame is over an hour, the alarm will be checked once an hour.
Calculation Method Event count for each sensor: The number of events specified must be found for each sensor specified to trigger the alarm.

Event count of any single sensor: The number of events specified must be found for any one of the sensors specified to trigger the alarm.

Event sum of all sensors: The number of events specified must be found among all the sensors specified to trigger the alarm.
Custom Variables See the Sensor Interaction page for details on how to pass variables in events. If required, you may specify criteria to filter events in or out by these variables.

Schedule

Schedule Time If you want the alarm to only run during a certain time range, specify that here. You may also specify an inverse range. Use 24 hour format.
Schedule Day Leave blank to run on all days, or specify only certain days to run the alarm.

Notification

Users Optionally, specify which users should be notified when the alarm is triggered. An email will be sent to these users containing a list of event times which triggered the alarm.
Reset Time Specify the amount of time after an alarm is triggered until the alarm should be checked again.
