What is a Recipient List?

The Recipient List is a widget available on the Notification object. The Notification object provides a means to send event notification messages that are generated by other objects to any BACnet device. The Notification object is mainly used to route alarm messages to third-party BACnet devices. The Recipient List is a list of one or more recipient destinations to which notifications are sent when event-initiating objects detect the occurrence of an event. Use the Recipient List to view and configure the details of a Notification object including the recipients of the notification.
