To test an alarm that you just created, or if something critical occurs and you want to activate an alarm, you can trigger the alarm manually.

Before you begin

  • The alarm must be configured in Config Tool.
  • If you want to trigger alarms from the Monitoring task, you must enable alarm monitoring.


  1. From the home page, open the Alarm monitoring task or the Monitoring task.
  2. Click Trigger alarm ().
  3. From the list, select an alarm, and then click Trigger alarm.


All pre-configured alarm recipients receive the alarm if they are logged on to Security Desk.
