You’ve likely heard the term Internet of Things (IoT) in reference to smart home technology but how does it relate to your shop floor? In its simplest definition, IoT means “things” that are connected to the internet, physical objects such as your home, office or car. In smart manufacturing, it’s known as Industrial IoT (IIoT) or Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution. It provides manufacturers with the ability to connect all machines and equipment in their plant to the internet to gather real-time, actionable data. With Freepoint, connecting machines is quick and easy on both legacy and new machines.
The ShiftWorx Notifications module now allows email and text alerts to be active only during select shifts.
To edit an Alarm or Alert condition to be active only on certain shifts, turn the Alarm to “Off” and then select the “Edit” function.
After selecting the “Edit” function, scroll to the bottom of the window and check the “Only notify me if in an active shift” box.
After clicking that box, you can then select which shifts you would like the Alarms and Alert notifications active for.
As a reminder, if you enter any information in the data box below, you will also receive a notification when the alarm condition has been cleared.
Don’t forget to review your changes, save them, and then turn the Alarm/Alert back to “On”.
