Templates and Inheritance for Alarm and Notification settings

Inherit the alarm and notification settings of another tag


For each monitored tag, TopView allows the user to define alarm limits, alarm messages, notification recipients, escalation, and other settings related to alarm conditions and notification.

In many cases, a set of related tags will have identical settings for alarm and notification. Instead of requiring the user to duplicate the settings for each tag, TopView allows the user to configure alarm and notification settings for a single tag (the template tag) that can be inherited by one or more additional tags (children). Any changes to the template tag’s alarm and notification settings are automatically inherited by the related children tags.


Mobile Web App Enhancements

The TopView Mobile Web App provides access to TopView alarms and values from web browsers, typically mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Recent enhancements include:

Value Status Enhancements


Each monitored value in TopView has an associated status of Good/Bad. Recent enhancements for value status include:

Notification Escalation Enhancements

Custom messages and Tag Group options

TopView Escalation Templates define notifications that occur at various times after the initial alarm event base on the current alarm active or acknowledge state.

Recent enhancements include:

Text-to-Speech speed rate

Control speed of spoken messages

TopView Audible Alarms and Voice Notification can convert message text to spoken words. The user can select the desired voice and output audio format.

Through the new rate property, the user can now control the speed of the spoken words. The speech can be slowed down or sped up.
