Dear smssexe

If the number is set in [ ] brackets, you can use the HTTP Content sensor. If you somehow can extract the value via an Xpath, you can use the XML/Rest sensor. Otherwise, a custom sensor script is required.

You can add a notification with a threshold trigger to get the according notification below a particular value.
