Notifications if contact with AP is lost

Basic setups, using 5-10 APs managed by HMOL.

For one reason or another, an AP will lose connectivity. Someone unplugs it, the power adapter gets knocked out of the wall, etc. Maybe even the AP goes defective. Anything that would prevent the AP from communicating back to the network.

Is there a way to be notified that this has happened? Some kind of snmp monitor, ping, whatever?

I enable the CAPWAP E-mail alerting (Home -> HiveManager Services -> Update Email Service Settings -> Enable Email Notification -> CAPWAP).

CAPWAP: If you select Critical, HiveManager sends an email alert whenever the CAPWAP link between a device and HiveManager becomes disconnected. If you select Clear, HiveManager sends an email alert whenever a device forms a CAPWAP connection with HiveManager.

Neat. I have implemented, and will do some testing. Thanks for this.
