While most of its internal settings for the LPM-15 can be left alone on your Vera Dashboard, you can make adjustments and set notifications.
Let's begin with a simple one that might be useful in a home with more than one plug-in module -- let's give it a name, so you know which module is which when you want control from your Dashbaord.
Hover your mouse over the top blue bar of the LPM-15 Device in your Dashboard, so that the wrench icon appears, as shown. Click on the wrench icon.

If you have the Vera3 Smart Controller, click here to learn how to set your Notifications preferences.
To set a notification, click the "Notifications" menu in the plug-in module. You'll see a drop-down menu labeled "Add notification for" that lets you select when you'll receive a text or email notification, and also a field to give the notification a name.
Give the notification a name, then click and hold the drop-down menu. You'll see a list of actions that will make your plug-in module send you a notification. In this instance, the choice is simple -- whether a device plugged into the module is turned on or off.
