EcoStruxure Building Operation Alarm Notification
Alarm notification via multiple channels
Alarms can be sent in a number of ways:
Voice over Telephony
Escalation procedure - eliminating nuisance alarms at their source
UCME-SmartConnector™’ s sophisticated escalation procedure is a customizable alarm delivery feature that sends alarms to alternative recipients. When a recipient acknowledges the alarm, further unnecessary repeat alarm notifications are prevented – reducing nuisance alarms and reducing costs.
EBO Alarm Discovery – Save time. Avoid Errors
UCME-SmartConnector™ discovers all alarms defined in the EBO and connected controllers.
EcoStruxure Enterprise server Watch-dog
Be notified in real-time when the EcoStruxure Enterprise Server is Stopped.
Acknowledge EBO alarms remotely

Inhibit EBO alarms by changing a Value in EBO. Simply modify a Value from 0 to 1 to inhibit an alert. This may help reducing nuisance alarms
On-demand or scheduled EBO Values’ report via SMS, Push and Email. UCME-SmartConnector will query the required EBO values and check which value is outside the expected range. This values will be marked, so you can easily identify the root cause of the problem.

UCME-SmartConnector™’s sophisticated escalation procedure is a customizable alarm delivery feature that sends alarms to alternative recipients. When a recipient acknowledges the alarm, further unnecessary repeat alarm notifications are prevented – reducing nuisance alarms and reducing costs.
UCME-SmartConnector distinguishes between low severity alarms and high severity alarms. Alarms that are defined as High Severity will be handled with higher priority than the other alarms. For example, if you have 50 alarms in the alarms queue waiting to be sent to the recipients, the high severity alarm will bypass all other alarms and will be sent immediately. This feature ensures that high severity alarms will be sent to recipients in the shortest time, prevent damage, improve up-time and service.
If UCME-SmartConnector™ fails to send a text message (SMS) via one channel (for example: a faulty GSM cellular modem), it will automatically switch to a fallback channel (for example: a CDMA cellular modem). This functionality reduces the chances that a text message will not be sent and as a result, increases the system reliability.
UCME-SmartConnector™ can be used to escalate an alarm to several recipients. It can send the alarm to the 1st recipient, if an acknowledgement is not received within NN minutes, then the alarm will be sent to the next recipient.
UCME-SmartConnector™ enables you to translate various texts to your local language. For example, the text “Alarm started” or “Alarm ended”, attached to the SMS message, may be translated to any language.
Using UCME-SmartConnector™, you may acknowledge alarms using your cell phone. Upon acknowledgment, alarm escalation may be stopped. The EBO alarm will be also acknowledged.
The service operates before a user has logged in and continues to operate after the user has logged off.
