Alerts can be configured through the Amcrest GPS Portal by selecting from the Menu tabs. This tab allows the creation and management of alerts.
Select to begin creating a custom alert.
A new window will appear, fill out the required fields and save the alert. It will be enabled upon save.
Alert Name – This field allows the user to name this alert.
Priority – This field allows the user to designate a priority for this alert. High priority alerts will ‘pop up’ and sound a siren where they are triggered. Click ‘Action’ on the High Priority Alert dialog box to open alert details. High priority alerts cannot be dismissed without a comment added to the alert. If you do not wish to dismiss the alert, but want to mute the siren, simply click the megaphone icon and siren notifications for that alert will be disabled.
Select Asset – This field allows the user to select which asset group or asset(s) to create a custom alert for.
Select Alert Trigger – This field allows the user to select what should cause the alert. There are many alert triggers that can be selected, such as entering or exiting a zone, speeding, starting/ending a trip, or triggering an event.
Select Optional Time Periods – This field allows the user to select an optional time period (dates and times). If a time period isn’t selected, then the event applies at all times.
Other Criteria – This field allows the user to select additional criteria to use for the alarm.
Who to Notify:
This field allows the user to select who should be notified, and how they should be notified when an alert is triggered. Either SMS or Email alerts can be sent to specific people.
