XML sensor alarm



We have set up a webpage that returns XML values. We have setup a HTTP XML/REST Value sensor which successfully pulls the value we want from the page.

The XML is setup to return 1 if everything is ok or 0 if it isn't. Is there any way we can get the sensor to alarm (go down) if the value returned is 0?

You can use Channel Limits here to set the sensor to alarm state. These can be set up in the sensor channel limits.
Best regards
