Sentinel Alarm Stations provide the users with multiple levels of reporting and alarming. Local users can be alerted to high thresholds in toxic gases, temperatures, sound levels, etc. with an audible siren or visual light beacon. Set different limits for sirens and different colors for alert levels. During an alarm, the rate of reports are increased to report the data faster to the SCADACore IIoT Live system, allowing real-time alarms and more frequent data for historical data trending and archival.
