The CONNECT software’s X2 base radio utility can monitor the status of configured alarms on a WQDataLIVE project. When enabled, a radio base X2 can be tasked to turn on 12V power to its P2 sensor port whenever a WQDataLIVE alarm triggers. An external device connected to this port, such as a buzzer or beacon, can notify personnel of the alarm in the event that traditional methods of notifications (SMS or email) are not available.
Note: An active internet connection on the PC running the CONNECT software is required for data to be uploaded to WQData LIVE and local alarming to be processed.
- Locate the WQDataLIVE Project ID number. This appears as the first number in the URL for the page.
- Navigate to Tool|Local Alarm in the Connect Software.
- Enter the Project ID identified in Step 1, check the box to Enable local alarms, and click OK.
- If desired the external 12V notification device can be tested by manually toggling on the X2 Base’s 12V sensor port power.
