Hi Jens,

Do I understand you correctly, that you want to send an HTTP request to a REST API? If so, you can create a new notifications via the Setup > Account settings > Notifications page and choose the Execute HTTP Action option to send the HTTP request to your web server. You can then add a new trigger to the sensor in question to send the message as soon as the trigger condition is fulfilled.

Best regards, Felix
