There are two alert types: internal and external

The related alarms are triggered always by the Sentilo platform when the alert logic occurs.

The external alerts are defined by third party entities, which will be the responsibles of calculating their logic and throw the related alarms when applies.

For both cases, the Sentilo platform is responsible of publishing the alarm for all entities subscribed to the related alert.
