○ On high priority – records will be generated as high priority events and immediately sent to server via GPRS (if GPRS is available);
○ On panic - records will be generated as panic priority events and immediately sent to server via GPRS, if GPRS is not available records will be sent via SMS messages;
- Data acquisition type – allows to choose when records are generated:
○ Monitoring – monitors data;
○ On change – record is generated when parameter value is changed;
○ Hysteresis – record is generated when increasing parameter value becomes higher than High value, and decreasing becomes less than Low value;
○ Event on exit – record is generated when parameter value becomes higher than High value or lower than Low value;
○ Event on entrance – record is generated when parameter value becomes between High and Low values;
