Article summary

Escalation Manager

The Escalation Manager allows you to setup a chain of notifications to ensure that an alarm event on a TraceableLIVE® Cloud Connected Measurement Device is acknowledged and handled in a timely fashion.

After a given number of minutes that an alarm is not checked on a specific channel of a TraceableLIVE device, escalate a notification will be sent up a user-specified chain of command.


For example:

  1. A TraceableLIVE® Device has a high alarm and the normal Notification are sent, based on the preferences that each user has specified in Notification Settings in the same Location that the device is in.
  2. After a given amount of time (say 15 minutes) and a Device Check has not been received, a specified user will receive an Escalation Notification, informing them of the unhandled situation.
  3. If the Device Check is still not received, again after a given amount of time, the next specified user will receive a second Escalation Notification, informing them that both the initial Device Check and first Escalation Notification have gone unhandled.
