How To - Configure an audible alert for use with sound device

IPSentry provides Audible alert functionality to notify persons within hearing distance to be made aware that IPSentry has detected a fault on some device. 
 
If your system is equipped with a sound card and speakers, IPSentry can make use of WAV files for both UP and DOWN notification.  If however your system has only a PC Speaker, IPSentry can make use of a beeping sequence via the PC Speaker when a system is in a state of failure.
 
To enable this functionality, perform the following steps:

  1. Select Action/Edit Devices from the active display console..
     

  2. Select the entry to which the alert will be applied
     

  3. Select the Audible tab on the Alerts tab .
     

  4. Set the Alert Status option to Enabled.

If your system has sound capability.

  1. Click on the Triger On Recovery option to enable UP alerts.
     

  2. Hit the Browse button next to the Down WAV field and select an appropriate wave file.
    (A file named down.wav is provided in the distribution under the application path)
     


  3. Hit the Browse button next to the Up WAV field and select an appropriate wave file.
    (A file named up.wav is provided in the distribution under the application path) 
     


  4. Click the speaker button next to either of the above fields to test the sound.
     

  5. Set the Repeat Sound field to the number of times the WAV file should be played (looped).
     

  6. Set the Alert Schedule according to your preferences.

If your system does NOT have sound capability.

  1. Click on the Use PC Speaker Beep option to enable use of the speaker.
    (Sound system specific fields will be disabled)
     

  2. Set the Repeat Sound field to the number of iterations of speaker beeping you prefer.
     

  3. Note that the Recovery Alert sounds identical to down and is not widely used with audible alerts on a PC Speaker only configuration.
     

  4. Set the Alert Schedule according to your preferences.
