The Alarm Priority Indicates the importance of an alarm and determines which alarm is displayed in the Alarm Notification Bar. Using priority for sorting or filtering alarms in System Activity and in Alarm Manager and Alarm Monitor allows the user to view and acknowledge alarms of higher importance before alarms of lower importance. The priority number associated with an alarm falls within a range of 0–255. Alarms with a lower priority number are of a higher importance or are more critical than alarms with a higher priority number. You can configure Remote Notifications to route alarms based on their priority.
Note: Use a consistent priority scheme to make sorting and filtering alarms based on priority in System Activity and in Alarm Manager and Alarm Monitor easier.
Note: You can specify alarm notification sounds based on alarm priorities. Refer to Audible alarm feature (Alarm sounds) for more information.
