Device Specific Logging

Device Specific Logging


Device Specific Logging is used to modify the default logging for a device.  This feature allows the global logging to be ignored for the specific point using only the logging options specified for the properties for the device.

  • Select the device in which the logging should be modified, for example highlight a door contact.
