Add Trigger to change state




I have a sensor monitoring Output Load on a UPS.

The trigger so far says "If load is above 70% for more than 60 seconds, send email to Admin"

I also want it to change the state of the sensor to warning or error depending on Load value - how do I do this?

I am looking to do the same with a number of other sensors, such as Runtime remaining (i.e Under 10 mins runtime send alert and change state to error)

Dear user

Please open the sensor overview tab and click on the according channel to open the channel configuration. The dialogue offers to enable limits which allow you to trigger warning or error states depending on the value.

Once this is done you can add a state trigger.
