VersaTile Alarm Setup
The VersaTile's alarm state involves frequent connections, significantly affecting battery life. When configuring alarm thresholds, it's crucial to consider daily fluctuations to avoid false alarms. Setting realistic minimum and maximum thresholds, particularly for temperature, is essential, while parameters like low temperature and humidity thresholds are less critical unless for specific use cases like produce storage. Ideal thresholds should lie outside normal fluctuations, unlike the less ideal scenario where an excessively low temperature threshold triggers constant alarms.
In an alarm state, the VersaTile connects to VersaHub more frequently and will greatly impact battery usage. When configuring alarm thresholds, keep in mind daily fluctuations. Otherwise, false alarms will be issued.
Because of the above warning, it’s critical to set up realistic minimum and maximum alarm thresholds.
In most applications, setting a high temperature threshold is adequate. Other parameters such as low temperature and humidity thresholds aren’t as valuable alarms to configure unless produce storage is the primary use.
The below example illustrates optimal minimum and maximum alarm thresholds (grey/yellow lines), which fall well outside normal fluctuations.
