LORIOT implements the below notification mechanisms to send out the alerts that are generated while monitoring your assets.
Alerts are generated per gateway based on event type, you can customize them in the Alerts page of each gateway. Notifications can be enabled/disabled globally in the account and multiple notification mechanisms can be set at the same time.
This option allows the user to receive e-mail notifications about events generated by our system.
To use e-mail notifications an e-mail address must be set up. Default value is the Account’s e-mail address.
When a different address is set up, a verification email will be sent to the new address.
Within the email, please click the link to Change Notifications Email.
Please note, only the gateway owner (the user who registered the gateway on the server) will receive gateway alert notifications.
SNMP Traps are a way to communicate events that are triggered by the gateways using the SNMP protocol. The gateways will send the so-called traps to the Network Server and in turn it will forward the trap to SNMP Server of your choosing.
In order to set up SNMP Trap Notifications the following two parameters are required:
Host: the address that shall receive the SNMP Traps
Community: the community string used to access the information from the SNMP Traps, similar to a password
The SNMP Traps will be sent through port 162/UDP using SNMP V2.
SNMP Trap configuration via WebUI
To set up SNMP Trap Notifications go to Account → Notifications, and click on the Edit button next to "SNMP notifications".
Enter the host address and the community string in the corresponding fields.
Users must click on blue check button to confirm.
The configured host address will be shown below the section title:
