4. Hit "Update Template". A warning message will appear alerting you to the following important considerations:
  • the notification delay is the result of the number of readings you have configured for a particular notification (or group of multiple notifications) as well as the sample rate of the device.
  • Because the sample rate may differ for various devices you may want to apply this template to, the timing of notifications will differ as well.
  • Updating the template may change the time delay at which notifications are sent
  • This is a reminder to double-check the alarm delay(s) you have input to ensure that is the delay you want.

5. If everything looks good, click "Update Template" on the warning message. You should be taken back to the alarm templates page, where you will see a confirmation that the template has been successfully updated. You'll see a reminder to double check the device(s) to make sure there are no other alarms applied to the channels covered by this template.
