thank you very much for your KB-Post. This is possible, but only with [https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/libraries.htm|Libraries]]. So by creating a Library with the group (of devices) in it, but filtering for Ping sensors only (on the library node), and then setting the Trigger on the Library.

best regards.
