SMS alerts are very useful for high priority rules.
After you are happy with the new rule, click "Save".

SMS alerts

SMS alerts will add an additional cost of 3 NOK per SMS sent.
There will maximum be sent one SMS alert to all receivers every hour.


Offline Notifications

Offline notifications for gateway can be selected to get notified if a gateway was offline for more than 30 minutes.
This is very helpful to determine if the Gateway has lost power, need a power reset or have some other issues that prevent it from sending sensor data back to Neuron Cloud.
