  5. If a Logical ID is already set, please do not change it.
  6. If a Logical ID is not set, then Cobalt requests that you set a Logical ID for any alarm that you need to be monitored by Cobalt.
    1. To set a logical ID, type a number into the Logical ID field, and then click "Apply". Don't worry: Genetec will prevent you from accidentally setting the same Logical ID for two different alarms. The number does not matter, as long as it is distinct from other alarms.
