Rules are parameters that you define and assign to sensors.

For example, you can define an acceptable temperature range of 1°C to 8°C and assign this to fridge temperature sensors.

If a sensor takes a reading that contravenes the rule assigned to it, the following people will be notified via a sensor alert so they can take appropriate action.:

  • Supervisors in the team assigned to the sensor

  • Safety Managers at the location assigned to the sensor

See Create a Rule for instructions on how to define acceptable parameters for your equipment.

See Create Monitoring for instructions on how to assign a rule and team to a sensor.

Types of Rules

There are three types of rules:

  • temperature (the temperature range that equipment should operate within)

  • relative humidity (the humidity range that an environment should be)

  • contact (when a door should be open or closed)

Rule Specification

When you create a rule, you specify:

  • the date frequency (the days on which the rule should apply, for example, every day, Monday-Friday, etc.)

  • the time slot (the hours within which the rule should apply, for example, 00:00-23:59, 1300-20:59, etc.)

  • If you create:

    • a temperature rule, you specify the minimum and maximum acceptable temperature

    • a relative humidity rule, you specify the minimum and maximum acceptable humidity

    • a contact rule, you specify if a door should be open or closed

  • the recovery time (how long to wait before triggering a sensor alert if a piece of equipment is operating outside of the defined parameters)

Different Parameters for Different Times

If your equipment operates differently at different times, you can set multiple limits.

For example, you could specify that a sensor alert is triggered if a fridge door is left open for more than 5 minutes during your opening hours and 0 minutes during your non-opening hours.
