Alarm Informer 1.8
Clean and compact appearance
The utility features a fairly simple-looking user interface, yet its functions are rather counter-intuitive, particularly since no tooltips are displayed.
In addition, Alarm Informer itself does not come with a user guide or a help manual, and this makes it quite difficult to understand, even for individuals with an average level of experience, since none of the program’s functions are in any way explained.
Verify your devices IP address and send emails to alert you when a change occurs
Alarm Informer is able to check the state of the Air Conditioning machines through the user-defined IP, supporting multiple devices at once. You can even set a temperature level past which the application should send you a phone call or an email message.
Similarly, you can add various other IP addresses to the ‘PING Device IP List’ and the utility will verify whether they are online or not, informing you of the result through a timestamped notice in the lower part of the window.
As for the alerting functions of the tool, an email message can only be sent on condition that you have a previously created script, as you need to enter its URL for Alarm Informer to retrieve and work with. In what concerns the ability to make phone calls, you need to add the targeted numbers to the ‘Dial List’.
A handy instrument for checking devices’ IPs addresses
Overall, Alarm Informer proves to be a simple application that can determine the status of various network devices by pinging the corresponding IP address, yet its opaque usage and lack of instructions or indications makes it much more suited for people with advanced knowledge in the field.
