Weather Monitoring

Monitors current weather conditions for alerting, reporting, and interaction with other systems

Monitor weather alerts from the National Weather Service, updated every 30 seconds, providing detection of critical alerts for automatic processing via reporting and interaction event rules for notifications and system interaction including common alerting protocol (CAP) translation for pushing out messages to mass notification systems. Alerts are categorized as:

  • 1. Environmental
  • 2. Extreme Temperature
  • 3. Severe Weather
  • 4. Extreme Weather
  • 5. Emergency

These categories allow for easy filtering in reporting however there are even more filtering capabilities such as: limiting to new alerts and not updates, only tornado warnings, severity condition, urgency of action, etc. Another capability is to have the weather alert trigger an automatic case to be started which will allow for history and personnel responses to be tracked and recorded.

Monitor 6 weather metrics, updated every 30-60 minutes:

  • 1. Temperature
  • 2. Relative Humidity
  • 3. Current Condition
  • 4. Wind Speed
  • 5. Barometric Pressure
  • 6. Dew Point

Each of the metrics can be programmed with a low and high threshold limit which can deliver notifications and interact with other devices onsite such as the alarm/access systems and thermostats. Historical reporting is also possible for each metric which can show readings recorded over a time period.

In addition, if set, the current condition such as Clear, Rain, Snow, etc. can be monitored for changes and logged as an event. The event can follow custom Event Rules based upon keyword. This may include notification but could also include Task Rule activation including the possibility of Lockdown triggering.
