Whisker.io® smart alerts allow you to manage by exception by notifying you by text or email when problems arises. Whether you need to protect refrigerated inventory again temperature excursion, chemical tanks against running empty, or sewage systems from overflowing, you can setup a Whisker.io® smart alert in minutes to do the job.
Whisker.io® has an alert type for almost every application. Threshold alerts are perfect for things like temperature monitoring when you just need to know whether a temperature has exceeded a threshold for a specific amount of time. Rate of Change are used when you need to know if a monitored value changes by more than a set amount within a specific period of time. Inactivity alerts let you know if there is a problem with the monitoring equipment itself. Target Deviation alerts are great for applications like chemical injection or oil and gas when you need to know if the consumption or production has varied from a target setpoint by more than a specific percentage.
Stack alerts with varying time parameters to escalate notifications up the chain of command. For example, in a food safety application, you might set a threshold alert to notify your store manager when the temperature of refrigerated food exceeds 40°F for more than 90 minutes so they have time to address the issue before the food is unsafe. Create a second alert that notifies your operations manager if the temperature is above 40°F for more than 4 hours. In this way, the operations manager will get a notification if the store manager doesn't address the original alert withing 4 hours.
Just like your alarm clock, you can snooze alerts on a one-time or repetive basis. If your equipment is going out of service for maintenance, create a one-time snooze for 3 days so you do not receive notifications while the equipment is off-line. If you have equipment you only use part of the time, create a scheduled snooze for when the equipment is not being used so notifications are not sent in those time periods.
