Send SMS if your website becomes inaccessible
The Ozeki Alarm system can monitor your website, and if it becomes inaccessible, or some error appears on the webpage, it can notify you in various ways. For example you can receive an SMS message to your mobile phone, a chat message, or you can receive an E-mail. You may even notify a security monitoring station using the same contact ID protocol that is used by burglar alarm systems in homes. Check out some of the poplular configuration options:
Send SMS if your E-mail server goes offline
Your E-mail infrastructure is critical for day to day operations. Due to the nature if e-mails, it is hard to detect if the e-mail server is down and not accepting incoming mail. Ozeki Alarm allows you to monitor the availability of your E-mail server, and if it detects that it is unreachable, or does not respond in a timely fashion, it will notify you in an SMS text message. Other notification methods are also awailable.
The e-mail server goes offline? Send notifications:
Send SMS text message if e-mail server is down
Send a chat message if the e-mail server is down
Send a Contactg ID alarm message if the email server is down
Network and server monitoring using ping
Ozeki alarm allows you to ping IP addresses periodically. If no ping response is received, you can take action. For example you can send SMS, send E-mail, makd a voice phone call with a previously recorded audio messages or you can dial a security service center and send in a traditional alarm using the Contact ID protocol. This feature can be used internet outages and server offline state.
Send alarm messages using HTTP requests
The best way to build a business is to rely on software instead of human work. Your automated software solutions will work precisely and reliably 24/7. If any of your applications detect an urgent situation, it is a good idea for them to send an alarm to a human to take action. Since most systems are capable of issuing HTTP requests, the HTTP API of Ozeki Alarm is a good way to raise such an alarm. The following page gives information on how to trigger an alarm with a simple HTTP request.
Communicate with burglar alarm systems
Traditional burglar alarm systems (the ones protecting your office and home) communicate with centeral monitoring stations over phone lines. When an alarm happens, they make a phone call and send a so called Contact ID messages. The centeral station of the security service provider can detect this Contact ID message and can take action by sending out security guards to check the reason of the alert. The Ozeki Alarm software can send and can receive phone calls containing Contact ID alarts. It can connect to a VoIP phone service, and can dial calls and accept calls with Contact ID alerts.
How to send contact ID alarms
In order to send a Contact ID alarm to notify a centeral monitoring station of a secruity service operator who can send out security guards, you need to connect your alarm system to a VoIP phone service. After the connection is setup you can send out previously defined Contact ID messages, or you can forumulate and send custom Contact ID messages if an alarm action takes place.
How to receive contact ID alarms
One of the great things of Ozeki Alarm is that it enables you to receive Contact ID alerts. This way you can become the centeral monitoring station for your home or office security system. Check out some of the configurations for this setup:
How to receive contact ID alerts:

Web based user interface for easy configuration
The Ozeki Alarm system can be configured remotely from a PC using a webbrowser. No matter if the alarm system is installed on a Windows server, a Linux box, an Android phone or a Raspberry Pi, you can connect to it simply by opening the URL pointing to your computer or phone. This approach makes it very convenient because a webbrowser is easy to use.
The layout of the user intrface is divided into 3 sections. On the left hand side you will find the notification channels, on the right hand side, you will see the alarm sources you have confiured and in the middle you can define routes. Routes are responsible for delivering the alarm messages from an alarm source to a notification channel. For example if you setup two routes you can send a single alarm message to two separate people using the same (or different) channels.
