Alerts

The EMS Si can generate alerts if the temperature in the building goes over or under a pre-programmed level. This protects the building from damage due to freezing and/or excessive heat.

This alert, along with optional technician contact information will be displayed on the screen. If the building owner registers the thermostat, the alert will be emailed to them and be displayed in the web portal.

High Temp Alert  Sets the temperature at which the thermostat will generate a High Temperature Alert. The range can be: Off – no alert will be generated. Set temperature range of 60 to 104 °F (15.5 to 40 °C).
