The purpose of Notifications is to generate an email, an SMS, or an HTTP request ("webhook") when certain events occur.

To create a new notification, select Notifications in the Monitoring section of the menu and click Add new.

Create notification

The Name field is is included in emails as part of the subject.

The Description field is included in both emails and SMSs.

HTTP requests contain a full description of the event in the form of a JSON object. The full webhook specification can be found here.

Multiple Event types can be included in a single notification. For example, you can create a notification called "Door alarm", and include the event types Door forced open and Door left open.

It is possible to specify a Maximum rate for the number of notifications that will be generated during e.g. one hour or a day.

Multiple SMS recipients can be specified with comma (,) between each recipient, and the same is true for email recipients and HTTP recipients.

Notifications can be filtered on a number of parameters, so that only events involving e.g. certain doors or certain users trigger a notification. The possible filter parameters are:

  • Controllers
  • Devices
  • Doors
  • Methods
  • Users

Finally, it is possible to limit the times during which notifications are generated by specifying a schedule for Only during and / or Unless during. If no schedule is specified, the notification is always active.
