There are two screens for alarms, New Alarms and Alarms. Using the display, you can go through new alarms with the New Alarms screen which contains the list of points that have new alarms. An alarm is considered new if the details of the alarm have not been viewed in the Alarms screen. A new alarm is considered read after a user selects the point in alarm and presses OK to view the points details or selects Mark all as read on the New Alarms screen.

Note: A display connected to an SNC supports both BACnet Intrinsic alarming and JCI alarm extensions. A display connected to an equipment controller supports only BACnet Intrinsic alarming.
Note: If the display is not configured, Alarms are displayed for the BACnet exposed points that have Alarms configured.
