Ignition provides the capability to send out alarm notifications to a list of people in Email, SMS, and Phone (voice dial-out). There are several steps to get alarm notifications sent out to a list people. The first thing to do is create an Alarm Notification Profile for Email, SMS or Voice, whichever method you intend to use. Then, create the users who are going to receive the alarms. Each user must have a name and contact information in order for Ignition to notify them of an impending alarm.
