Alerting is available to help you to manage your network remotely and troubleshoot any issues that may arise with your SmartSpots in different venues.
There are different types of alerts that you can configure to suit your client's needs.

Check that there are no foreign objects near or on the SmartSpot such as keys or metal objects.
The WiFi signal strength has dropped below the strength permitted in the threshold value.
|Have additional access points closer to the Neutrons and / or Cloud Gateways.|
|No activity in over * days||
The SmartSpot hasn't been used for the length of time specified in the threshold value.
