Pausiong sensors at a specific time




how do I get a sensor to pause at a specific time? For example, when I know maintenance (ad-hoc) will occur and then be finished. I don't want to create a schedule because it will be more random than that. For example, I monitor bandwidth on a circuit. I know the carrier will take it out of service on Sat from 01:00 to 07:00 just one day. I want to pause it then, not have to log in at 01:00 and pause it for 6hrs....

you can use the maintenance schedule function for this purpose. Just switch to the tab Settings of the device or sensor and remove the tick from Schedules, Dependencies and Maintenance Window. There you can define the same. The sensor will then pause for the defined time.
Best regards
