Thank you for being a SmartScan (formerly CIMScan) customer. Below you will find manual downloads and useful troubleshooting information.
Locate the remote that the sensor(s) report to. Verify its physical connection to the remote if it’s a wired sensor, or its battery if it’s a wireless sensor. If the remote’s green STATUS or SERVER LED isn’t on solidly, power cycle the remote the sensor reports to by unplugging the power cord for 5 seconds and then plug it back in. Wait at least a minute, and you should see the remote’s green LED stop blinking and turn solid, which will indicate that it is once again connected to the server. Within the remote’s next update period, the monitoring point(s) should come out of COMM LOSS error. If not, call us and we’ll guide you from there.
The Alarm most likely occurred before the start time of your reporting period. Extend your report to include more time.
The notification system takes your contact information directly from your profile. There are different fields, including Work Contact and Non-Work Contact information, as well as your work hours. Your work hours will determine whether the system will use your Work or NonWork information when notification takes place. If you have multiple pieces of contact information in a single field (e-mail AND phone), make sure they are separated with a semi-colon (;). If you aren’t receiving calls, be sure the number is listed as if you were making a call from your workplace. If you need to dial 9 to get an outside line, that needs to be included. For example, if your phone number was 555-1234 with a 222 area code, and you needed to dial 9 for an outside line, the number would need to be: 912225551234. To receive a text message on your cellular phone, you will need to know your service provider. For instance, if the phone number above was for a Verizon cell phone, the message would need to go to email@example.com. For other cell phone providers and how to text to them, please look at: http://www.emailtextmessages.com/
If the sensor’s alarm or error status remains active and uncorrected, and there are phone numbers in the notification tree, the system will continue to call out for the duration of the alarm. The proper response is to determine what’s causing the alarm or error and attempt to correct it. Entering the correct code on the phone call will pause calls, and adding an acknowledgment within CIMScan will also pause notifications to give time to do this. If it is determined that the alarm or error cannot be resolved and notifications need to cease temporarily, within CIMScan an administrative user can check the box to the left of the monitoring point(s) in the Current Measurement Values table on the Home screen and choose Sensor Disable from the Select an Action drop-down to disable Alarm Processing for a set period of time.
If an item exists in the Alarm List with a colored background, it means the alarm is active. Red signifies an alarm, yellow signifies a warning, and blue signifies an error. Any items in the Alarm List without one of those colors for a background is no longer active, but waiting for an acknowledgment to be added, or for an existing acknowledgment to be completed (when adding an acknowledgment there is a Keep in List checkbox that will allow an acknowledgment to be kept open or to be closed by unchecking it).
