Turning off a Visual and Audible Alert

You temporarily turn off an alarm alert when you no longer need it. If the alarm has both a visual and an audible alert, you turn off both in one operation.

Important:

In order to grant the correct functioning of alarm sound in combination with acknowledgements, you need to make sure that the Media Feature Pack for your PC Operating System is correctly installed.

A custom audible alarm alert is an audio file that is played when an alarm is triggered.

When several alarms with configured audible alerts are triggered, only the audible alert of the alarm with the highest priority is played. If several alarms with the same priority are triggered, only the audible alert of the latest triggered alarm is played.

To make it easier to find alarms with configured audible alerts in the Alarms pane or an Alarm View, you can combine audible and flashing alerts. You can disable the audible alert of an alarm. The alert is disabled until the alarm is triggered again.

You can configure alarm filters and alarm decoration rules to include custom audible alarm alerts.

Custom Audible Alarm Alert Workflow

To configure a custom audible alert for an alarm, you add the audio file to the EcoStruxure BMS server and then connect the alarm to the audio file.

For more information, see Custom Audible Alarm Alert Workflow .

Audio Files

The following audio file formats are supported:

  • m4a

  • mp3

  • mp4

  • wav

  • wma

You save the audio files you want to use for custom audible alarm alerts in the System folder of the EcoStruxure BMS server where the audio file is to be played. You have to log on to the server where the audio files are saved to hear the custom audible alarm alerts.

To hear custom audible alerts for all alarms in a multi-server system when logged on to an Enterprise Central, add the audio files to the System folder of the Enterprise Central.

To hear custom audible alerts for all alarms in a multi-server system when logged on to an Enterprise Server, add the audio files to the System folder of the Enterprise Server.
