Can I send a trap when a sensor gets down?



I need to send a trap to a Trap Management console I have in the installation, because all troubles must be handled by SNMP. So it´s important to me that when a sensor changes state (warning, down, etc.) the notification could be a trap sent to an IP address, where I have my trap management console.

Could be possible?

Thank you!

in the web interface, go to

Setup -> Account Settings -> Notification and edit an existing notification or create a new one and enable

Send SNMP Trap

and enter your settings.

Then you can use that notification for your sensors.
