The eGauge can be configured to send alerts based on a variety of trigger conditions. Alerts must be configured through the eGauge interface, and the eGauge needs to be powered on and connected to the internet in order to send alerts. Alert destinations can either be email addresses or SMS-capable phone numbers (or a mixture of the two).
Depending on the nature of the network used by the eGauge, it may be necessary to provide the eGauge with an email gateway (essentially, the eGauge is provided with an email address). eGauge support cannot provide email gateway credentials, but using a free Gmail account is generally adequate (it will be necessary to enable less secure apps on this account, so personal or work email credentials should not be used).
The following document covers basic alert configuration and provides some sample alerts. Additional information is available on an eGauge-specific basis by navigating to http://DEVNAME.egaug.es/fundoc.html?alert where DEVNAME is the device name of your specific eGauge. To take advantage of all alert features, the eGauge should be on the latest firmware.
