Simulate Error On ALL SENSORS



Hi All, The Simulate Error function can only be applied on a single sensor could I use Library to group all sensors and set test trigger to simulate the error alerts?

The purpose of this is to ensure the error alerts on ALL sensors would work properly. e.g TOTAL 1000 sensors, expected error alerts received: 1000

Thanks a lot!

You set a simulate error for more than one sensor with the multi edit feature. For this you need to open the sensor list and mark all desired sensors. Afterwards you can set the simulate the error via the blue bar by clicking on the !! symbol.
