RFID Enclosures (Cabinets, Fridges, Freezers)
RFID enclosures are cabinet, freezer and refrigerator Jetstream devices. They not only support most Jetstream commands and events but extend them by enabling access control and the ability to remotely lockdown.

The following are the Jetstream Events that may come into your queue directly from an RFID Enclosure. Other events pertaining to, but not generated by, the RFID Enclosure are not listed here as those Jetstream-generated events do not vary by device type. See the Event entry in the Glossary to see a complete list of which events are from a device and which come from the Jetstream application.
|AggregateEvent||Yes||An AggregateEvent is generated whenever an RIFD tag has been added or removed from a device.|
|CommandCompletionEvent||Yes||A CommandCompletionEvent is published when a command has been completed on a device.|
|HeartbeatEvent||Yes||These can be disabled by setting the HeartbeatEventInterval Config Parameter to 0.|
|LogEntryEvent||Yes||These can be disabled or increased by configuring the LogEntryLevel Config Parameter. Disabling LogEntryEvents is NOT recommended, as this would prevent you or Terso from remotely monitoring the health of the unit. See the LogEntryEvents section below for more details.|
|ObjectEvent||Yes||These can be disabled by setting the ObjectEventHour Config Parameter to -1.|
|SensorReadingEvent||Yes||See the SensorReadingEvents section below for more details.|
|StatusEvent||Yes||A StatusEvent reports several pieces of device information every time the device is powered on, and during its nightly scan.|
The list below are some common, potential LogEntryEvents an RFID Enclosure may send in. However, not all possible LogEntryEvents are listed in this table. The LogEntryLevel Config Parameter determines which LogEntryEvents are sent to Jetstream, the following logentryevents may be sent when LogEntryLevel = Error.
|ACPowerFailure||ACPowerFailure occurs when the enclosure loses AC power and is running on battery backup.|
|ACPowerRestore||ACPowerRestore occurs when the enclosure has AC power restored.|
|CorruptFlash||CorruptFlash occurs when the enclosure believes there is a problem with the flash memory.|
|DoorBreach||DoorBreach occurs when the door lock is released by something other than the enclosure. For example, someone prying the door open would cause this LogEntryEvent to be generated.|
|DoorOpen||DoorOpen occurs when the door is left open for greater than the DoorOpenTimeLimit.|
|DoorOpenRestore||DoorOpenRestore occurs when the enclosure's door is closed after a DoorOpen scenario.|
|DoorSensorFailure||DoorSensorFailure occurs when the enclosure believes there is a problem with the door sensor.|
|DisplayFailure||DisplayFailure occurs when the firmware attempts to send a message to the LCD but fails.|
|DisplayRestore||DisplayRestore occurs when communication with the LCD is restored.|
|InvalidPass||InvalidPass occurs when an RFID pass is presented to the pass reader which does not match any value on the enclosure’s synced credentials list.|
|LowBattery||LowBattery occurs when the enclosure's internal UPS battery voltage is less than the BatteryThreshold.|
|LowFlashMemory||LowFlashMemory occurs when the enclosure has less than 25% flash memory.|
|LowMemory||LowMemory occurs when the enclosure has less than 25% memory. This event will be sent every hour until the device reboots. Reboot occurs automatically if memory drops to 10%.|
|NewFirmwareDownloadError||NewFirmwareDownloadError occurs when a request to upgrade firmware fails.|
|ReadException||ReadException occurs when there is an issue performing an RFID scan.|
|ScanInterruptionAlarm||ScanInterruptionAlarm occurs when someone interrupts a scan by opening the door.|
|Shutdown||Shutdown occurs when the enclosure is powered down.|
|Startup||Startup occurs whenever the enclosure is started up.|
|Temperature||Temperature occurs when a temperature threshold set by SensorA/BLogEntryEventHighTemp or SensorA/BLogEntryEventLowTemp has been reached.|
|TemperatureRestore||TemperatureRestore occurs when an enclosure has gone back into normal temperature range.|
|UserPassReaderFailure||UserPassReaderFailure occurs when the enclosure loses its connection to the pass reader.|
|UserPassReaderRestore||UserPassReaderRestore occurs when the enclosure has restored a connection to the pass reader.|
|ValidPass||ValidPass occurs when a valid pass is read by the pass reader.|
Enclosures typically have two temperature probes installed, smaller units may only have one probe (A). A SensorReadingEvent is periodically generated reporting the temperature on the probe(s).
|TemperatureA||The temperature reported on probe A in Celsius.|
|TemperatureB||The temperature reported on probe B in Celsius.|
