Major Features

Easily Build Any Kind of Alarming System

With powerful, easy-to-use tools for development and connectivity, Ignition is ideal for building virtually any kind of alarming system. Ignition is perfect for alarm notification, SCADA alarms, remote monitoring, and event notification.

Drag-and-Drop Alarm
Notification Pipeline Builder

Quickly configure alarms, pipelines, or any other aspect of the system with drag-and-drop ease with Ignition's innovative graphical alarm notification pipeline builder. Even create and configure thousands of alarms simultaneously with multi-editing functionality.

Develop Advanced Notification
Systems with Ease

With the freeform alarm notification pipeline builder, you can simply drag and drop blocks to create custom pipelines for conditional routing, splits, escalation, and multiple other alarm notification methods. Pipelines are instantiated per alarm and persistent so you never miss an alarm.

Reliable 2-Way Notification

Receive and acknowledge alarm notifications via email, voice (over VOIP), or text (Twilio). Separate notification pipelines are available for active, clear, and acknowledged alarm states and every step, action, and user reaction is logged and timestamped for accountability purposes.

Dynamic Customizable Alarms

Alarms support shelving, notes, separate pipelines for different alarm states, dynamic custom messages by alarm notification method, time and value deadbands, consolidation and more. Each alarm has multiple properties with values that can be assigned dynamically so you can customize your system. Customized alarms can be based on criteria such as users, schedules, tag type, and much more.

Easily Connect to Your Data

Ignition allows you to easily connect to your industrial data. With a comprehensive library of drivers (such as Allen-Bradley, Siemens, and Modbus) and compatibility with OPC UA and OPC DA/COM servers, you can easily pull data directly from PLCs or from established legacy systems.

Simple Alarm Management

With the powerful web-launched management client, you can easily manage users, roles, schedules, and call rosters so you can easily set up alarms that automatically notify whomever is on shift.

SQL Support

Ignition supports any number or type of SQL databases to store and manage history for alarm events. With SQL it’s easy to report alarm statistics such as: events per hour, most frequent alarms, number of floods, unique chattering alarms, and more.
