How to configure alarm sound in a Vijeo Citect Project.

To implement audible alarms in your project:

          1- Verify that the alarms you want to trigger an audible alert are assigned to a category and given a particular priority
         
          2- Adjust the parameter [Alarm]Soundn. This parameter determines the wav file used when an alarm sounds, 
               based on the priority of the alarm (n). For example, [Alarm]Sound1 identifies the .wav file with the path 
              as “C:\\Windows\Media\ding.wav” that will be sounded whenever a priority 1 alarm is triggered. 

          3- If necessary, adjust the parameter [Alarm]SoundnInterval. This parameter determines how long the selected 
               wav file sounds, based on the priority of the alarm (n). For example, [Alarm]Sound1Interval sets the length of 
              time a priority 1 alarm is sounded for.
          
          4- Enable the CSV_AlarmClient event on any machine you want an audible alert sounded from. You can 
              enable this event from the Events Setup page of the Computer Setup Wizard. See
Running the Computer Setup Wizard.
 
          5- Verify that your users have appropriate privileges associated with their login to acknowledge alarms, otherwise they
              will not be able to silence an alarm. See
Creating a Privileged User and the parameter [Privilege]AckAlarms.
