There are two ways to find the value you want the threshold set at by using the Data Viewer on the Analytics page.


The easiest way is to view the graph in hourly intervals –  the value at the point on the graph that you want to alerted when your usage exceeds is your threshold.


            The second way is when viewing the graph in 15 minute intervals go through the following steps:


Setting Electricity & Gas:

1. Find the value you want to set the threshold at on the Data Viewer

2. Multiply that value by 4 to find out what it would be over the course of an hour.

3. Enter this number into the alert when creating it.


Setting Water & Oil:

1. Find the value you want to set the threshold at on the Data Viewer

2. Multiply this value by four to find out what it would be over the course of an hour

3. Divide this number by 60 to find out how much it would be per min.

4. Enter this value into the alert when creating it.
