A customization to the preset critical notification events may be required to meet the requirements detailed in your emergency response plan. Any customization requires assistance from Primex Technical Support and must be planned and tested.
InfoBoards store a critical notification profile that contains the five critical notification event types. By default, these events are preset by Primex and can be customized with a OneVue Notify subscription and each InfoBoard requires an Ethernet connection. When customized, InfoBoards download the OneVue critical notification profile that replaces the Primex preset notification events. By default an InfoBoard downloads setting changes every 5 minutes, which is set in its Config Change Interval setting.
Any customization requires assistance from Primex Technical Support, which will include providing an updated label affixed to the Critical Notification Panel.
Each InfoBoard stores a critical notification profile that contains the five critical notification event types. By default, these events are preset by Primex.
Primex default presets are shown below.
Event 1: Lockdown. Color: Red, Mode: Flashing, Scroll: 0 (none)
Event 2: Evacuate. Color: Blue, Mode: Flashing, Scroll: 0 (none)
Event 3: Weather. Color: Amber, Mode: Flashing, Scroll: 2
Event 4: Lockout. Color: White, Mode: Constant, Scroll: 2
Event 5: All Clear. Color: Green, Mode: Constant, Display Duration: 5 minutes
Verify the main Transmitter's contact closure terminal block hardwired input configuration, which may either be wired to the Critical Notification Panel or a third-party system. A customization to the events must represent the hardwired configuration between the Transmitter and its event input source.
Preset number 5 (All Clear) must be hardwired to only activate the All Clear event. It can never be hardwired to activate any other type of event. Preset 5 has a unique setting to allow the event to be displayed for specified number of minutes and then ends automatically. If your emergency response plan identifies an All Clear event as a different term, the preset can be updated.
If events are activated from a Critical Notification Panel, the button label inserts must also be updated.
Once a change made to the preset events is completed, it's strongly recommended to test each event.
Go to Admin > select Edit - your account name.
From the Preset Critical Notification section, update the events. Each of the five events have unique settings.
Preset: sets the characters displayed during the event. Allows up to a maximum of 64 characters.
Scroll Speed: sets the speed of the characters during the event, higher the number the faster the speed.
Color: sets the digit color during the event.
Mode sets if the digits are flashing or constant during the event.
Preset 5 only (All Clear) Display Duration: sets the number of minutes the event is active. Once it ends, InfoBoards return to displaying synchronized time and non-critical events.
Select Save. By default, InfoBoards connect to OneVue every 5 minutes to receive configuration setting updates.
All InfoBoards download the updated Critical Notification Presets during their next connection to OneVue.
If any of the events are activated from the Critical Notification Panel, the label affixed to the Critical Notification Panel must updated. An updated label is provided by Primex.
