Notification with value from other sensor



Scenario: I have an UPS with a input voltage sensor and a time remaining sensor (time left before UPS is empty).

I change the input voltage sensor limit to go into down state when it's below 210 volts. And I added a state trigger that sends a notification when it's down (below 210 volts).

My question is, is it possible to use the time left value from the time remaining sensor as a value in the notification? So use a the value from another sensor in a notification.

Unfortunately I cannot think of any way to do this. The only way that you can get the value of the time left to be sent in a notification would be to set limits on that sensor and add that value to the notification template with one of the placeholders. The problem with the placeholders is that they are tied to the sensor that is being used.
