Bullhorn: How to change the Power Fail alarm setting


The Power Loss default setting when shipping from American Innovation is for after 60 continuous minutes of no power and then again after 5 continuous minutes of power being restored.

This article will describe the steps for you to extend either of those time settings for as long as 24 hours.


To change the Power Fail Outage alarm, follow the steps below:

  • Log into Bullhorn Asset Tracker and go to the effected unit.
    • Click on Settings under the Unit Admin section:
    • BAT Unit Admin Settings Highlight
    • Next, change the AC Fail to the desired delayed time and hit save. 

      • This setting is in minutes and 1440 minutes (24hrs) is the maximum setting.
    • AC Fail Max Setting
    • Finally, click send settings and then click on Sync Unit Settings.

    • BAT Send Settings
      • Note: If the triangle to the right of Send Settings is showing the change has not been sent to the Bullhorn and has not taken effect yet.  You must click on Sync Unit Settings to complete the command.
