  • To send a notification to a specific address, select the Address radio button and enter the IP Address, Network Number, UDP Port, and Process ID. See the Recipient List attribute of the Notification Class object for details.

  • Select the check boxes for the days that the notifications should be sent. To define the times when the notification is active, slide the arrows on the time bar to define Start and Stop times.

The Notification Class object provides a means to send alarm messages (Event Notification Messages) that are generated by other objects to any BACnet device. Typically, it is used to route alarm messages to third-party BACnet devices. Notification Classes are useful for event-initiating objects that have identical needs in terms of how their notifications should be handled, what the destinations for their notifications should be, and how they should be acknowledged.

When you create a Notification Class object at a BACnet client and map the object to a network engine, a folder called Notification is created and a new Notification Class object is created under that folder in the navigation tree.
