    How to configure Automatic & Intervention Actions in Cloud VMS?

    Cloud VMS Configuration: Actions

     

    In Cloud VMS, different 'Actions' can be configured for automatic processing as well as manual action to be performed by the operators (Alarm Agents).

    There are 2 different options how an action is processed:

    • An 'Automatic Action' is processed automatically when the related Service Scenario is performed.
    • An 'Intervention Action' is executed manually by an operator from the Cloud VMS Operator Interface.

    This article shows available actions in Cloud VMS and provides a step by step instruction to configure these actions.

     

    Send e-mail

     

    "Send e-mail" sends an e-mail notification to the configured recipient(s). The action can be used as manual action for the operators (Intervention Action). The content of the alarm e-mail can be configured to the customer's needs.

    To configure a "Send e-mail" action, perform the following steps:

    1. Open Cloud VMS Configuration website (/config), log in as Integrator or Config Agent.

    2. Enter the related Account.

    3. Click tab 'Actions'.

    4. Click '+' button to add an action.

    5. Give the action a descriptive name and select 'Email'.

    6. Type recipients, CC's, mail subject and message. Use the pull down to enter environment variables to the e-mail text.

    Play Audio on Device

     

    "Play Audio on Device" replays an audio file directly from the device's loudspeaker.

"Play Audio on Device" can be used for automatic processing (Automatic Action) as well as manual action for the operators (Intervention Action).

    Note: Audio files need to be prepared and installed by Cloud VMS engineering. If a Monitoring Center or customer wants to use their own audio files, please get in contact with Cloud-based Services technical support.

    To configure a "Play Audio on Device" action, perform the following steps:

    1. Open Cloud-based Services Configuration website (/config), log in as Integrator or Config Agent.
