Note: All users can view the Space Alarm Settings, however your user account must have special permissions to modify them.

 

The Space Alarm Settings window allows you to set time limits on occupation intervals, as well as free intervals, for each individual space in an area. By setting an alarm to go off, when an occupation interval exceeds the maximum occupation time, you can ensure  that carpark users are not staying longer than they are permitted.  Meanwhile, an a limitation on the amount of time a space can be free is a good way ensure that your carpark is being fully utilized. Furthermore, it can indicate if a space sensor is malfunctioning and hence unable to detect occupation.k

 

Note: The times in this window have the following format: [days].[hours]:[minutes]

Area

Here you can select the area you wish to view the space alarm settings for. Simply select the area from the drop-down menu and click Show. This will display the area's space alarm settings in Spaces.

 

Note: The whole carpark is not available as an area in this drop-down menu.

Spaces

Shows the alarm settings of each individual space in the selected area. The table has the following fields:

 

Area - The name of the area the space is located. A unique identifier for the area.

 

Space - The name of the space the alarm settings belong to. A unique identifier for the space.

 

Max Free Enable - Indicates whether or not the maximum limit, for how long a space can be free, is enabled.

 

Max Free Time - The amount of time that the space in question can be free before an alarm is triggered. This requires the Max Free Enabled checkbox to be checked.

 

Max Occupied Enable - Indicates whether or not the maximum limit, for how long a space can be occupied, is enabled.

 

Max Occupied Time - The amount of time that the space in question can be occupied before an alarm is triggered. This requires the Max Free Occupied checkbox to be checked.

 

ID - A unique numeric identifier for the space the alarm settings belong to.

 

You can modify the Max Free Time and Max Occupied Time fields by selecting them (click on them, they will become highlighted) and then clicking on them a second time.

 

To finish editing, click any of the other field. If the time you have entered does not mach the format [days].[hours]:[minutes], you will be unable to deselect the field until this is corrected.

Quick settings

This option lets you modify the Max Free Time and/or Max Occupied Time fields for all spaces in an area. Furthermore you can use it to enable or disable these limits.

 

You will notice the checkbox next to the times have a third state ( dcgs_client_alarm7 - Updated ). When the checkboxes are in this state the times filled out, in the field on their right, will be ignored. That is to say, the corresponding times (and whether they are enabled or disabled) in Spaces will remain unchanged when you click

Apply.

 

When a time's checkbox is checked and the time field has been filled out (when all the underscores are gone from the field), the time entered will be applied to all corresponding fields when Apply is clicked.

 

If a time's checkbox is unchecked and Apply is clicked, all the corresponding time limits will be disabled.

 

 

Changes made to the Spaces field will first become permanent when the Save button is clicked. If you at any point (before clicking Save) regret changes you've made, click the Cancel button and the changes will be reverted.
