Alarm filters allow you to select which events are relevant to you, and ensure that you only see these events.
When you first log into Sureview CC, you will just see an "All" filter. This shows you all alarms on the system.
Click the icon to add a filter.
If filters have already been configured, you will see a list of filters you can add. Selecting a filter from this list will add it.
When you have added a filter, you will see additional tabs. Next to "All", you will see "All Open Filters". This adds all events from every filter you have open.
You will then see each filter you have added. You can continue to add as many filters as you require.
You can use Control and your number keys to change between filters. Ctrl+1 will select All, Ctrl+2 will select All Open Filters, and 3 to 0 will select other filters in turn.
If you want to create a new filter click and you will be presented with the screen similar to below.
**If you cannot see the filter options (Pirority, Num of Alarm etc) you can use the show more/less criteria arrow. /
Here you can give the filter a name, decide whether it is a personal view or a shared view using the "Shared" checkbox.
Below the title you can decide what Areas to include in this filter. (Not adding an area will include all areas.) If you add an area you will see it listed below the Filter name along with two buttons.
These buttons allow you to remove the area from the filter and change whether you want to include the sites sub-areas
The bottom section allows to specify what the view is filtered on.
The Filters allow you to filter on Priority, Number of alarms, Routing Groups, Alarms tag and Alarm age in seconds. You can use the criterea Greater than, Less then and Equal to specify exactly what you need to filter.
Good examples of filters are, High Priority, Alarms Over X age, High Risk or High Importance Areas or alarms with specific tags such as Fire or Panic.
