Auto-acknowledge a group of devices



Is there a way to "auto-acknowledge" a group of devices at the parent group level? I set the auto-acknowledge string under the notifications but it doesn't seem to work when a sensor goes down. ver

Acknowledging is only available for sensors.

Best Regards.

The solution here would be, use a ping sensor on each device and enable it's "Auto-Acknowledge"-Setting and also make the Ping-Sensor to be "Master Object for parent" (Dependency-Setting). This way all other sensors on a device will be paused if the ping fails, and the ping sensor itself will auto-acknowledge itself.
