A user assigned to an admin role can change the state of a Monitored Asset. Although OneVue manages the state, a circumstance may arise that requires a user to manually change the state of a monitored asset. Conditions that may warrant the use of this function include temporarily suspending the monitoring of an asset during maintenance, permanently disabling the asset from your OneVue account, or during testing.
When the state is changed: The state of the sensor(s) assigned to the Monitored Asset is also changed to the state selected during this procedure.
Changing to a Suspended state: The system continues to store readings and log statuses, but alerts are not generated. Any active alerts associated with the Monitored Asset based on its previous state are acknowledged and cleared by the system.
Changing to a Suspended state: A reminder task can be set to generate a Dashboard To Do List notification. Setting a Reminder Task is a means to notify system users that the Monitored Asset is in a Suspended state and needs to be set back to a Normal state to resume alerting.
Changing to a Suspended or Decommissioned state: A subsequent check-in with a Normal, Alarm, or Warning state does not change its state. Therefore, a manual state change is required to be completed to change the state from Suspended or Decommissioned.
Changing to an Alarm or Warning state: The system does not generate an alert. This is due to a status code that activates an alert is not set during a manual state change completed by a user.
Stage change history: All manual state changes are logged. The details logged include the date and time the state change was made, the user who performed the change, and the reason provided by the user. All state changes can be viewed from the State History of Monitored Asset and are included in the Asset Summary report and Monitored Asset State History report.
Go to Monitoring > Monitored Assets.
Select the Monitored Asset link of the asset.
Select Show Advanced Options.
The change is completed from the change state section.
From the New State drop-down menu, select the state the Monitored Asset is to be changed to.
From the Reason field, enter the condition that warranted changing the state. The comments entered are stored in the State History view and included in the Asset Summary report and Monitored Asset State History report.
If being set to a Suspended state, a Reminder Task can be set (optional). The Reminder Task generates a Dashboard To Do list notification when the time period set in the Reminder Task has been reached. The notification remains on the Dashboard To Do list during the time period the Monitored Asset is in a Suspended state.
To change the state, select Change State.
The Monitored Asset and its assigned sensor(s) state is changed. If the Monitored Asset was in an Alarm state, the OneVue acknowledges and ends the alert.
