To Opt Out

Opt Out  is enabled through the GRIDview Home screen. Opt-Out is toggled ON or Off.

When in Opt-Out the Orange Tile appears.


Opt Out – No Event

Opt-Out can be toggled ON or Off when there is no Event. It is the state of the Opt-Out bit when the Event begins that is irreversible.

When there is no Event Pending or one Active, Opt Out can be  freely.

Opt Out – Event Pending, Moderate, High

When there is an Event Pending or a Moderate, High or Special Signal present the user can Opt Out and a Opt Out Event tile will appear on the screen in a few seconds. This signals the VTN Server that the VEN has Opted-Out and the VTN will discontinue sending Event Signals even if the user toggles Opt-Out OFF.

The GRIDlink will ignore any further Event updates or new Events until this Event is completed.
