Threshold-specific addresses example
- A “generic_send_wireless_SMS” alert action is created and no SMS destinations are included.
- Include threshold-specific SMS destinations is selected for this "generic_send_wireless_SMS" action.
- The “generic_send_wireless_SMS” alert action is added to an alert profile called “alert_profile1.”
- The “alert_profile1” profile is specified for two NetBotz Appliance thresholds, “temp_too_high” and “humidity_too_high.”
- The “temp_too_high” threshold has Threshold-Specific Addresses for User1 and User2, and the “humidity_too_high” threshold has Threshold-Specific Addresses for User3 and User4.
- When “temp_too_high” triggers, only User1 and User2 will receive SMS messages.
- When “humidity_too_high” triggers, only User3 and User4 will receive SMS messages.
