Assigning Local Alarms to a Sensor Group

Sensor Groups are used to control Local Alarms on SR2, ARB, CR2 USB and CR3 NW Control Devices, allowing the User to select a Control Device for handling local alarms on a Sensor Group.

If an alarm is activated for a Sensor that is a member of a Sensor Group, then the associated Local Alarm will be activated on the SR2, ARB or CR2 USB Control Device.

Note:Local Alarms do not work with CR3 GPRS Control Devices.
