So, I have read the instructions on events as posted here:
I would like to drill down on step # 6 -
Step 6: Establish event logic, you can choose either: if the value is greater than 90, for 60 minutes. If the variable has not been updated for 10 minutes. If the device position enters/exits a geofence for 1 minute.
I have two questions which I don’t think are addressed in the documentation:
The period of time is expressed in minutes - what is the range of acceptable values?
Let’s say that the event is set to greater than 5 for 10 minutes. If one data point is received with a value of 6 say at 18:00 hours. Will an alert be triggered automatically at 18:10? Since no other data has been received, will Ubidots assume the value still meets the trigger threshold? Or, is another data point greater than 5 required to trigger the event?
