About Push Notifications
The push notification feature is an additional communication method used by the ProfiLux as a means of notifying you when an event or alarm occurs. This feature can be used to notify you of events such as alarm notifications (sensors, KHD, IOND, etc.), low dosing container fill levels, water change events and more. When an event or alarm occurs, the GHL Connect app will send a notification to your phone, tablet or smartwatch.
This article will show you how to get the full benefits of push notifications.
In order for your GHL device to send you push notifications, you must have the following already completed:
