The i.Report BACnet Text Messenger is a self-contained remote monitoring and alarm notification system that monitors data points in one or more BACnet MS/TP devices and alerts you and others via SMS when an event has been detected that somebody should know about. The i.Report Text Messenger offers simple yet powerful remote monitoring without the need for a monitoring service - no contract required.

You decide what events somebody should know about, and who should know about them. If the event is important, you can require the alarm message recipient to acknowledge the notification. You also have the option of escalating the notification to additional users if the first user (or group of users) did not respond by acknowledging the alarm within the time limit you set.

A single i.Report can monitor up to 100 data points from a single device or from multiple devices on the network. An event can be a level exceeding a threshold high or low, a change in state, change in value, or deviation from a setpoint. The parameters that decide what constitutes an active alarm are set up with an easy to use template. A notification is sent when the alarm transitions to “active”, and again when the alarm transitions to “inactive”. If acknowledgement is required but not received within the time you allowed, the active alarm notification is repeated, possibly including additional users each time if you set it up that way.

The notification message consists of whatever text you provided, optionally including template variables. These “variables” are replaced with dynamic data, such as present level, at the time the message is sent to users’ mobile phones.

The i.Report BACnet Text Messenger can be a BACnet client or server. As a client, it will read properties from objects in other BACnet devices and retain copies of that data for evaluation against alarm criteria. As a server, the i.Report will contain a collection of Analog Value and/or Binary Value objects which other BACnet devices may write data to.

The i.Report Text Messenger can be used in multiple ways in Building Automation Systems. You can provide alarm monitoring and notification regarding specific equipment such as chillers, compressors, pumps, air handlers, etc., and do this monitoring without reprogramming anything. This makes i.Report a useful diagnostic tool that can be quickly added without impacting existing BAS programming.
