ClareOne Zone Profiles Tech Bulletin

Zone Profiles are introduced with the release of ClareOne v2.0. Zone Profiles provide the dealer/installer with flexibility to customize ClareOne sensors and their behavior on ClareOne.

Summary

A Zone Profile is a collection of advanced properties that are applied to each sensor (aka zone types), every sensor must be assigned a zone profile.

Basic zone settings are not part of zone profiles and can be changed independent of the selected zone profile. In most cases, the default zone profiles will provide the necessary configuration required for a zone.

For more advanced configuration and for special use cases, each zone profile setting can be edited in the Advanced Settings section of the sensor settings. If one or more advanced settings are changed, and the collection of settings do not equal the settings for an included Zone Profile, "Custom" will be displayed as the selected Zone Profile name. The selected Zone Profile can then be changed at any time from Custom to one of the provided Zone Profiles available for the sensor type.

Profile Properties
