    I just transferred all of the settings over onto her new Revel, and I'm just waiting for the pump to pick up the sensor signal, and for the alarms to begin!

    We don't have the Revel yet, but we recently got a Guardian unit, which has all of the Revel alarms. We ended up turning off the rate of change alarms entirely, the predicted high alarm, and use the "snooze" option quite frequently. That's actually pretty cool. You can tell it that you want to silence the high or low or high and low for a set period of time. So if you catch an impending high or low, and don't want to hear the alarm once it reaches the ACTUAL high or low, you just mute that particular alarm for a period of time that you choose.

    Those techniques, combined with the fact that you can set different high/low thresholds for different times of the day (so if you ALWAYS get a breakfast spike, you can set the threshold higher then to avoid a nuisance alarm), has led to us not really getting that many more alarms than before we had the Guardian.

    Honestly, the predicted low alarms has been the key for us. SO helpful in heading off lows.
