Threshold Detection Agent

The ThresholdDetectionAgent will publish an alert when a value published to a topic exceeds or falls below a configured value. The agent can be configured to watch topics are associated with a single value or to watch devices’ all topics.


The ThresholdDetectionAgent supports the configstore and can be configured with a file named “config”.

The file must be in the following format:

  • Topics and points in device publishes may have maximum and minimum thresholds but both are not required
  • A device’s point entries are configured the same way as standard topic entries
    "topic": {
        "threshold_max": 10

    "devices/some/device/all": {
        "point0": {
            "threshold_max": 10,
            "threshold_min": 0
        "point1": {
            "threshold_max": 42
