The alarm rate is the number of alarms per hour experienced based on the parameters (time period, etc.) of the report. An alarm rate of 0.05 alarms per hour is the equivalent of 1 alarm every 20 hours of SmartCap use.
If an individual or group has an alarm rate above 0.1, this would indicate more than one alarm per operator shift, which is above the average experienced by most SmartCap sites.
Note: SmartCap Fatigue Manager allows the configuration of many alarms, so it is important when running reports to select the particular alarm of interest.
