Hello! I need help - again :) 1. On my PRTG page in root directory 27.0.0.1 i have 3 devices. - beebox - lan controller - rasberry pi 3 I want to make a window where i can see 2 sensor from first devices, 3 from second and 1 from last devices. Or, add 2 sensor from one devices to second... ( I hope you understand ) I want see big icon with an arrow. :)

Hi Damjan,

Regarding 1): Generally it is not possible to have a sensor on a device that queries another device, because most sensors are designed to address their queries to their parent device. What you can do however, would be creating a Business Process Sensor. This sensor works independently from its parent device and you can configure it to display data from several other sensors, so basically having several sensors combined into one.

Other alternatives:

  • Creating a Library that contains only those temperature sensors.
  • Creating a Map with the sensors you're interested in. (Maps can also be public without the need to log in.)

Regarding 2.) I'm not sure if I understand correctly, but what you need might be setting limits in this temperature channel where it should be yellow (=warning state) or red (=error state).

Regarding 3.) Turning off login completely is not possible. The only thing that works without login is having a public map as mentioned before. However when clicking on one of the objects in the map, which then would lead to opening this device or sensor in PRTG, a login would then be required.

Kind regards.
