Status & Alerts

This section offers a short overview of the functionalities available on the Status & Alerts.


The Status & Alerts must be configured before it can be used to display and aggregate the desired (alarm) messages from the building. The customer can either configure the Status & Alerts on his own via the API or aedifion sets it up upon customer request either as part of the continuous service package .elevate or as a one-time service as part of .engineering. For configuration, the system components must be created for the subsections, virtual data points must be created and mapped, and alarm messages must be created and pinned.

Current status of equipment

Once the Status & Alerts is set up, aedifion provides an automatically generated summary of the system status of technical building equipment.

Figure 1: Overview of the Status & Alerts

This summarized equipment status is displayed for selected plants in the Status & Alerts. A plant in operation has regularly the status Green. In case of error messages, warnings, or notifications, the color of the system status is adjusted according to this table. The status overview table shown below can also be accessed directly from the Status & Alerts. Clicking on the information icon next to the "Current statuses" will display the table, as shown in Figure 2.

Color Interpretation
Green System in operation or ready for operation
Green border without filling System is manually switched off (e.g., cooling switched off in winter)
Yellow Error message with low priority
Red Error message with high priority

It is possible to set up forwarding from the Status & Alerts to the Datapoints or to an external resource, such as a web-based SCADA system. Clicking on the icon on the alarm card is opening the link. An icon appears in each card that contains a link as shown in Figure 3.

All alarms that have been set up are displayed as incidents. The green signal color is displayed when there are no alarms. Yellow is displayed when alarms have already been processed. Red indicates open alarms. Please contact us for setting up new alarms.
