Feature Request



It would be really nice to have a better-looking alarms screen. The new HTML5 interface is absolutely brilliant, so it was a little disappointing to see the alarms page hasn't really changed.

We are trying to produce a view that we can show on a 40 inch TV in the office. But the text for the alarms is so small that it can't be viewed easily.

Would it be possible to have an alarms page that utilises the lovely new 'green boxes' that the sensors appear as when opening a device page?

Thanks very much for all your hard work with the v13 update :)

Hi Matthew,

Is this something for your 40" TV?

Brilliant! I'll take a look at that - ultimately we could really do with it being HTML-based so we can integrate it with the viewing software we use and show uptime on our Sharepoint homepage, but this looks like it might do in the short term!

Thanks for sharing :)

At version (AJAX) to solve the text size issue use the web browser zoom feature, found in Internet Explorer.

Simply press Ctrl + or Ctrl - to adjust the size as desired. Ctrl 0 (zero) reverts to 100%. This setting is persistent. I tested on a 1200x1920 display and was able to zoom to 150% and all columns remained visable. The result was nice big text.
