logically combine sensor states

I would like to logically combine the state of three different sensors. The combined sensor should only go down if one specific of those three sensors goes down.

I use a sensor factory with the following state logic: status(1001) and not status(1002) and not status(1003)

The resulting sensor factory state shows exactly the states I need. The problem is the missing downtime in reports an historic data.

Is there any other possibility to combine sensor states? I thought about the business process sensor but I'm not sure if it is possible to configure such a logical combination.

Dear Mr. Döpke

Both the Factory sensor and the Business Process sensor have no Downtime channel. As a kind of workaround you could evaluate the sensor status in the Factory formula as well. This returns a numeric value (0 for up, 10'000 for down.) While still not a real downtime channel, you would have at least some data to work with.

I'm already using the Factory formula Feature for the sensor Status. The mentioned formula "status(1001) and not status(1002) and not status(1003)" is also working as intended.

The only problem is, that I can not report the downtimes of the Factory sensor.

Dear Mr. Döpke

Downtime reports are not possible with this sensor. Only numeric data can be reported.
