I have to show the alerts, up & down, warnings, unusual, paused and unknown sensors which ar in the status bar on an seperate homepage.

Is there a way to show them seperatly and with the correct icon i.e. red,green,orange,blue?

Could you provide more detail? When you say "show them separately," what precisely do you mean, respectively where would you want to show them? One possibility would be to use a Map.

I have to show the status bar maybe on a seperate website.

In the image below you can see the statusbar.

The problem is that i cannot find the number of sensors which are up, down, warning, unusual, paused and unknow.

You can use http://yourprtgip/api/getstatus.htm?id=0?username=xxxx&password=yyyy. We would recommend using passhash=passhash instead of the password.
