You can create a node and have the only sensors to be included in that node be filtered by specific criteria. After you create the node, you can click on it and go to the settings of that library node and set up the filters there. With those filters, you can set up to only include sensors by status, type, tag etc.

The only way possible to do this would be through the Libraries function. What issues have you had creating the libraries? You should be able to create a library then create a node where you can then filter for specific sensors.

Once you have the library set up, you can set up the notification for all the sensors in that library.
