Table 1. Wireless Receiver Object Attributes
Name / View Group

Attribute ID Writable (W) Configurable (C)

Attribute Description

Network Address -- Setup

875 C

Indicates the network address of the wireless receiver. You can define only up to 50 wireless receivers per Wireless Receiver Supervisor Object.

Host Name -- Setup

750 W C

Indicates the host name of the wireless receiver. When a host name is given, the system attempts to resolve the Host Name and IP Address using DNS/DHCP (assuming that the installer assigned a host name to the wireless receiver and enabled DHCP). If the device can be located using the ping hostname command, the system can resolve the host name to an IP address. After resolving the host name, the system updates the IP address.

JCI IP Address -- Setup

1135 W C

Indicates the IP Address of the wireless receiver.

Max Data Life -- Setup

3428 W C

Indicates the maximum amount of time in seconds that the wireless receiver module waits for a transmission from a wireless sensor before generating a report that tells the NAE that the Wireless Sensor Object is unreliable due to Data Life Timeout.

Disable Automatic Alarming -- Setup

1396 W C

Specifies whether automatic online/offline device event reporting is disabled (True) or enabled (False). This attribute only applies to the device and not to the device’s mapped objects. Devices with the Disable Automatic Alarming attribute set to True suppress the alarm event but still indicate they are offline in the navigation tree with a red X. Alarm extensions are not affected by this attribute.

Low Battery -- Status


Indicates if any wireless sensors defined as children of the Wireless Receiver object have a low battery. The Low Battery status is an advanced warning that can occur many days before a wireless sensor ceases to function. You can configure an alarm for this attribute to allow the building operator time to locate the sensor and change the battery.

Alarm State -- Status


Alarm state occurs when the extension transitions into the high alarm, low alarm, or unreliable conditions.

Graphic -- Graphic Association

32581 W C

Indicates the graphic associated with the object.

Graphic Alias -- Graphic Association

32623 W C

Indicates a portion of the graphic’s item reference, up to and including the name of the folder containing this object or the controller containing this point.
