Audible Alert: The Collection Point (CP/Sensor) on each appliance can be configured to audibly beep if there is an out-of-range condition. This allows for a very quick response time to begin resolving the issue without having to wait for remote notifications.
Visual Alert: There is also a red LED light that flashes if there is an alarm condition. This provides a local alert and staff members are not required to be near a computer or carry a pager or cell phone to be notified of an alarm.
Alarm Acknowledgement: The CP has a numeric keyboard which allows staff members to enter a PIN code to silence the alarm at the appliance, identify themselves, and immediately document the response to an alarm condition with time and date stamp. This eliminates the need to go to a computer to silence and acknowledge an alarm. It also keeps track and logs exactly who responds to the alarms.
Corrective Action: By entering a 3-digit code, users can silence the alarm at the CP and also take Corrective Action. This will document the user and corrective action with no need to go to Computer.
Access Points: Isensix Access Points (AP) utilize two-way communication creating a “fail-safe” system. Each transmission is acknowledged by the AP, creating a closed loop handshake between the AP and the Collection Point. If a transmission is not received, the system will automatically:
- Run a diagnostic program
- Diagnose the issue
- Alert the end user as to the problem.
Without a two-way communication system, the end user would be responsible to “watch” the computer screen to make sure data is being recorded at all times.
