Managing System Alerts

System Alerts can be configured using any valid email address and thus can be used to notify owners, managers, or trusted attendants of system outages or coin boxes that need to be emptied.  Once configured, Alerts are completely automated and will continue to send email notices at intervals until the triggering condition is no longer met (i.e. collection has been performed, satellite is back online, etc). 

  • Alerts can be configured to notify the user of satellite outages, collections performed, or that a coin/cash box is full and needs collection.
  • Alerts can be temporarily disabled by using the Silence feature, described on the Active Alerts page.
