Acknowledged alarm



What happens when a sensor is acknowledged [when it goes down] and another channel in the same sensor subsequently also goes into a down status ? Will the sensor resume notification only for the the channel that went down subsequently ?

Hi there,

Thanks for the KB post.

The acknowledgement for the first down notification or one sensor will suppress the subsequent channels.


With kind regards,
