You acknowledge an alarm to let other users know that you have seen the alarm. When you log on to Technician Tool, the Alarms list is displayed. You can select and acknowledge multiple alarms.
You are notified by alarms when an important event occurs. For example, if the temperature is too low or too high in a building, if a window is open, or if something is broken, such as a fan. The system administrator sets up the alarms and decides to whom the alarm is sent.
When an alarm is triggered, the alarm is displayed in a list together with information about the alarm and its current status. In the list, you can select multiple alarms and acknowledge. You can view the list of active, reset, and acknowledged alarms. You can also open a detail view to get information on the source of the alarm and all its properties.
When you acknowledge an alarm, you let other users know that you have seen the alarm. Acknowledging an alarm does not necessarily mean that you are responsible for solving the cause of the alarm. The acknowleged alarm is moved from the Active list to the Acknowledged list.
