Each Notification Profile requires the Alarm Notification Module. This is because Notification Pipelines are managed and defined by the Alarm Notification Module. The SMS Notification Module and Voice Notification Module are similar in concept to browser plug-ins in that they extend the functionality of another piece of software. The SMS Notification and Voice Notification are both separate modules, and can be downloaded from the Ignition Downloads webpage. To learn more about installing these modules, refer to Installing or Upgrading a Module.
Each Alarm Notification Profile needs a method to deliver the message. These methods are not included with the Alarm Notification Module, and some may require additional hardware to be purchased.
Email Notification - The Gateway will need network access to a SMTP server.
- SMS Notification - A cellular modem with an active SIM card. Alternatively, a Twilio account may be used instead of the physical cellular modem.
- Voice Notification - Any SIP compatible phone system.
