Hi, all! I want to monitor my APC ups. I use custom snmp lib, and there is OID, which can return one of the balues from 1 to 4. For this values ther are lookups (unknown(1),batteryNormal(2),batteryLow(3),batteryInFaultCondition(4)). How can i configure this sensor, to get allert, when value is not equal to "batteryNormal(2)', and warning when 'unknown(1)'?

To get alerts from this, simply create and adjust the lookup with the desired states:

However, we have a ready-to-use device template available for APC here:

The template already includes ready to use lookups.

Hi! Thanks, for youre answer! I already know about your built-in templates, but this sensors does not sutisfy me. For example, there is not ppresent some important data, as UPS status (on-line, on battery, onBypass), Humidity and temperature of External Sensors, Batteery Status etc. Anywhere, I'd find out already how to do, what I need via custom lookups. Thanks

Hi there,
thank you for your reply.

Everything that you've mentioned is actually supported by the template that I've referenced. Please refer to the "The sensors will monitor the following properties" section of the post.
