Good morning guys,
Do you know how can we attach leak rope sensor and/or dry contact alerts in DCE?
Since I know we have to setup alerts in Advanced View because is not possible in DCE, any workaround?
Thanks and regards

Although most NetBotz sensors are configurable through DCE, the actual configuration will still reside on the NetBotz device itself. As shown here, I can configure the leak rope through the other state sensors option:
There are some cases (and I don't have enough sensors at this moment to test on this sensor) where you can only configure a single device at a time. A 355 for instance can not be configured with a leak rope so you may not be able to choose multiple devices for such a configuration. Some alarm actions may be similar as well as profiles and certain alert functions are available on some devices and not others (beacon, modem, relay output etc).
If you do run into an instance where you can only configure one at a time, Advanced View may actually be the easier option as I mentioned previously, this config ends up getting pushed to the device.
