Good whatever it is where you are,
I’m tearing my hair out pretty much over my darn freezer and fridge alerts. One would think it’s easy. It’s not. A simple alarm when the temp goes above a set line does not work. Freezers vary. A running average then? Well, it’s not perfect either.
I’ve come to realize what I need is this: a point where Alerts happen but with a delay to first see if the temp goes back down. This delay should however be dynamic. If it’s only 0.5 degrees below the limit, I can well wait for 24 or even 48 hours before being notified. If it’s 2 degrees too warm I’d like to be alerted perhaps in 12 hours. If it’s 4 degrees maybe 2 hours and finally if it’s more than 6 degrees, right away?
These are just examples obviously, but you see where I’m going with it. How do I do this without setting up multiple alerts with different levels and wait periods? I don’t want a darn mess. Any ideas?
