How To Create Public URLs In Your RoomAlert.com Account

You may create public URLs for various pages of your Room Alert Account, which can be shared with anyone you wish. This is an easy way to give someone read-only access to specific account data, without granting them access to your organization’s Room Alert Account. Public URLs can also come in handy if you wish to display data on a screen in your facility.

There are 4 different types of Public URLs at RoomAlert.com Click on the tabs below to learn more about them.

Dashboard public URL

The Dashboard public URL auto-refreshes every 5 minutes, making it a great resource to visually track your Room Alert Monitors. You can keep it open on a screen in your facility to allow employees to keep an eye on current data.

PreviewHow to enable the public URL

The Dashboard public URL displays:

  • alerts that are currently triggered
  • a map of your devices or graph or sensor data
  • bookmarked alerts
