Alarm recipient lists are set up in the Recipient List sub menu of the Client Settings menu.
The contact details of alarm recipients can be managed in recipient lists to make it easier to change contact details without having to edit every alarm a user receives.
Recipient lists also allow for alarm escalation. When an alarm is delivered to an SMS or Email in a recipient list it is sent with a URL to enable the recipient to acknowledge and alarm. If an alarm is acknowledged by a user then the alarm will not escalate to the next level. A recipient list can have 2 levels of escalation with custom wait times to receive an acknowledgment before escalation.
