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 assigned to the Monitored Asset is also changed to the state selected during this procedure.
Changing to a Suspended state
This state is designed for use during a temporary condition, such as when a sensor or Monitored Asset is being repaired or replaced.
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.
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.
When set to a Suspended state:
acknowledges and ends any active alerts
does not generate alerts
does not monitor its readings or sensor device operating conditions
continues to log and store readings and sensor device operating conditions - continues to show status changes only
Changing to an Alarm or Warning state
When changed to an Alarm or Warning state, a subsequent check-in with a Normal state will change its state back to Normal.
When set to an Alarm state, OneVue does not generate an alert. This is due to a status code that activates an alert is not set during a manual state change.
Changing to a Decommissioned state
The Decommissioned state is designed to permanently disable a Monitored Asset from your account, such as when an asset has been taken out of service.
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.
When set to a Decommissioned state:
detaches the Monitored Asset from its assigned sensor(s)
acknowledges and ends any active alerts
retains all historical reading data that was stored in the system prior to the Monitored Asset being set to a Decommissioned state
allows the Monitored Asset to be permanently deleted from your OneVue account. You must contact Primex Technical Support to have the sensor removed from your account's OneVue subscription.
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.
