Frequently Asked Questions

Q
Why do I have an alarm showing tripped even though the current value is below the threshold?
A
Each alarm has a 1-unit hysteresis built-in to help limit nuisance alarms. This means that a value must change by 1 unit before the alarm will clear. For example, if there is a temperature alarm set with a high trip of 75F, the value must fall below 74F before the alarm will actually clear. A clear delay will need to be set and configured on the that alarm.
Q
How can I re-order the sensor OIDs on a Watchdog device?
A
To change the order in which sensors are mapped to an OID the user will need to unplug all sensors from the device and wait 1-2 minutes until they show unplugged on the web interface (will read unavailable at first). After they show unplugged, check the "remove all unplugged devices" box and then click the save changes button. After a couple minutes they can begin reconnecting sensors in the order you would like them in.
Q
My Watchdog 15 is showing a higher temperature than what my thermostat is showing.
A
In still air environments the onboard sensor is susceptible to higher temperature readings due to circuit board heating. With that, air temperatures in a room are rarely, if ever, uniform throughout the space, due to convection currents, relative proximity to sources of heat and cold air, and other thermal effects. Our Watchdog products have an internal temperature offset that you can adjust to compensate for board heating. This is found by selecting the Configuration Wrench in Sensors-Overview.
