If a device is used as a trigger or an alarm action in an active alarm, it has a yellow highlight colour.
The colours for active and ended alarms can be adjusted in the Alarm Visualization Settings
Alarms can also be assigned a custom colour that can be specified for each alarm separately.

The name and description are visible in the device tooltip—unique icons for the System Manager Profile Settings devices.
