thank you very much for your feedback. We've put this on the wishlist. I cannot say when exactly this will be added as an additional channel, but we definitely plan to do so. Please bear with us.

best regards.

Hello Team,

This is a great feature that could help us to avoid production outages. This sensor needs to be added and prioritised.
