Hi,
what you want to do, can be achieved with channel limits. Please open the "Channels" tab of the sensor and choose the desired channel. Then choose to "Enable Limits" and set the Error/Warning limits to the values you need.
When these limits are reached, the sensor will go to Error/Warning State.
Best regards

Hi,
correct. The fill color cannot be changed easily. What can be done, is using a tool like Firebug to find the respective part in the code and change the color there but this is completely unsupported.
Best regards
