We got a single PC connected to a TV to show our network map via public accessed Map

Now we want to play an Sound alert as soon as an Sensor comes into failure State

How can we achieve this? Install Windows GUI on the PC and configure a Sound Alert? Is this possible on Windows 7?

Greetings

There is a map object available, that plays a sound (on most browsers).

Go to the map editor, Click "add item", select the group/device/sensor that you want to be notifed about and select "With Alarm Sound (Audible Alarm ist Alarms>0)" from the "Status Icons" section of the template selector.

Now you should get an alarm sound whenever the alarms are above 0.

I guess that could be done.

You will only run into some timing issues. The GUI might pick up the alarm before the map is refreshed, or the other way around.
