Alerts are set up when a customer wants notifications to happen for Events based on specific criteria.
This is important for time-sensitive response situations
Examples of Alerts:
Line Crossing -> A Email Notification from the Event of a vehicle driving the wrong way down a one-way lane
Object Detection -> A Text Message or Push Notification alerting a shop someone brought a BackPack in
Camera Down -> An Email Notification every time a camera is unconnected for longer than X Seconds
They are very useful for situations that require an instant response (in Seconds). This is a huge value builder for a customer because they CAN get additional value and usage from their cameras at no additional cost.
