Go to the channel settings at the uptime sensor and set the warning or error state below x seconds

We have set the uptime sensor to error state below 3600 seconds. So we get a notification if the node was rebooted and uptime is lower the one hour.

Could the Uptime Sensor be of any help?

sure, but I'd like to be alerted when uptime will start from zero seconds (it means that a reboot occurred). I couldn't figure out how to get it..
