Navigation

  1. Navigate to your device of choice.

  2. Click Settings, then click expected available.

  1. You will see an Expected Available Form where you can select the mode to detect expected operational time for that device.

Overview

The expected available form will allow you to control when your device is supposed to be operational. It can also restrict sending out smart alerts if the device is not expected to be available.

4 Modes are available to define Expected Available:

Mode

Description

Schedule

Define a start time and end time in local time. This will set the time in UTC on the back end.

Is Active

When the device is active and sending data, only then set the value of the expected available to true.

Boolean

A switch to toggle whether the device is always or never expected available.

Custom

This currently uses LISP syntax to control. Because of the complexity with setting up logic towards your devices topics, we have choose to have the user provide an email. Please provide the topics you want to monitor and the values that would toggle expected available.

For example, /battery could be a topic. The property could be percentage and the value could be < 0.4. If the device was ever less than 40% battery, then turn off the device's smart alerts.
