You may want to override the default thresholds and/or notifications for a particular node. For example, if you have a section of electric fence set to a lower voltage near a roadside, house or where people are likely to come into contact with the fence, you could set lower voltage thresholds. If a particular section of fence does not require monitoring for a period of time, you can turn off notifications for the nodes on this section of fence.

Changing the voltage thresholds and notifications for a particular node can be done in the mobile or web app. This will affect all users connected to your farm.

To set different voltage thresholds and/or notifications for a particular node in the Datamars Livestock mobile app:

  1. Oh the Home screen, tap Menu, My Devices then Fence Nodes.

  2. Select the fence node you want to change. Tap on the Settings icon. Switch Notifications On or Off and/or tap Change voltage thresholds, as required.

  3. Change the Warning voltage threshold and Critical voltage threshold for the node and tap Save:

Note: To return to the farm default voltage thresholds, delete the values in the two fields.

To set different voltage thresholds and/or notifications for a particular node in the Datamars Livestock web app:

  1. Click on Farm Settings, then Electric fence.

  2. In the Individual Fence Node Configuration section, select the fence node you want to change. Switch Notifications On or Off and/or change the Default warning voltage threshold and Default critical voltage threshold for the node.

Note: To return to the farm default voltage thresholds, delete the values in the two fields.

Note: By default, all users connected to your farm will receive notifications for this node on their mobile phone whenever the electric fence voltage drops below either of these figures on that particular node, but each user can change which notifications they receive using the web app.
