Mobile alerting with tracking & escalation for Node-RED
How it Works
All it takes to pair Node-RED and SIGNL4 is a node that implements a webhook and encapsulates SIGNL4 alerting capabilities.
Service engineers alerted via mobile push, text and voice
Staff can acknowledge and take ownership for critical events that occur
Alerts are escalated in case of no response
ChatOps is hosted within alerts to effectively address individual problems
Alert on critical device states
Two-way integration to interact or set the device state
On-call scheduling to alert the right people at the right time
IoT Service Alerting
IoT Device Management
Manufacturing, Utility, Oil and Gas, Agriculture, etc.
Tickets and Incidents in Node-red are retrieved via the SIGNL4 app
Event categorization, routing and automated delivery
Persistent Notifications by push, text and voice call with Tracking, Escalation and Confirmation to Staff on Duty
HOW TO INTEGRATE Gathering events from IoT devices and sending team alerts in case of critical incidents is a rather vast field. It can involve simple prototypes using a Raspberry Pi and can work up to industrial IoT scenarios, machine data or distributed systems in the field, and even IT operations.
SIGNL4 is a mobile alert notification app for powerful alerting, alert management and for mobile assignment of work items. Get the app at https://www.signl4.com.
Node-RED offers an easy-to-use workflow designer. The integration with SIGNL4 is straightforward. In the following we explain a simple IT monitoring case. We automatically ping a server in certain intervals and send an alert via SIGNL4 in case a ping fails.
ALERT OPTIMIZATION SIGNL4 can further increase the visibility of alerts through its Signals and Services section. Augmenting the color and icon of alerts will provide more relevant information at a glance without having to open the alert.
Change alert color and override title + text
Override text, colors and titles are triggered by keywords set within the mobile app.
