Is there a way to acheive the following?

I have 3 devices: A, B, C, each has multiple sensors.

  1. I want each device to have a ping sensor as the master sensor, so if the device goes down, all it's sensors will be paused and will not send multiple false alerts.
  2. I want device A to be the "parent" device of the B and C, so if A goes down, B and C are paused and will not send false alerts.

If you want to configure it like this, you'll need to create a group, like this:

  • Device A
  • Group
    • Device B
    • Device C

...and make the group depend on Device A's Ping sensor. This way, once Device A goes down, the whole Group will be paused accordingly and no notifications will be sent.
