KANSHI BlockS Pro
2008/01/072008/01/072008/01/072007/12/17I set the notification settings so that a notification is only sent when an error is detected. That way, if no notification is sent it means there is no error. But then, it could also happen that no message is sent because there is a problem with the KANSHI BlockS Pro. Can I set the device to send notifications in regular intervals?2007/12/142007/12/072007/12/172007/12/172007/12/17
