- The Alert Timeout is used to trigger an Offline event for the Gateway or Sensors being processed by that Gateway. The default Alert Timeout is 5 minutes. The value should be twice the normal checking time for a sensor plus one minute. An example would be for sensors that check-in every 10 minutes the timeout should be 21 minutes. That will allow one updated to be missed and not trigger an Offline alert until the second message is not received. Your environment my need different settings.
