Alarm Messages

​When configuring the alarm, you can write a message that displays in the Alarms pane, Events pane, Alarm Views, and Event Views when an alarm is triggered or reset.

For example, you configure a multistate range alarm to display the text “The unit is too hot” when the alarm is triggered and “The unit temperature is back to normal” when the alarm is reset.

If the alarm is an EcoStruxure Building Operation alarm, you can use substitution codes in the alarm message to spell out current object values. Substitution codes are usually used to spell out current object values.

Displays the full path of the monitored variable.


Displays the monitored variable name.


Displays the monitored property.


Displays the value of the monitored variable at the time of the state change.

For example, you create an alarm that is monitoring a temperature object named T64. You write an alarm message that says: “The point @(O) is too hot.” When the temperature value increases to 35, the alarm is triggered. The alarm with its alarm message is presented in the Alarms pane and Alarm Views: “The point T64 is too hot.”
