DataHub Email/SMS vs Alarms & Notifications, How to Choose

With the addition of the Alarms & Notifications functionality in DataHub V10, we realize there might be some confusion. The table below should help you decide which feature you need or whether you need both.

Email/SMS

  • Targets a single-event report like email
  • SMS is sent via email to an SMS gateway of some type, including cellular carrier's gateways

Alarm & Notifications

  • Targets primary source alarm generation
  • SMS is via Twilio or via Email
  • Output can be OPC compliant alarms and events (UA A&C or Classic A&E) with lifecycle management

The table below summarizes the differences.  If you have any questions though, please use the chat below or contact us or request a technical consultation
