custom sound when changing status of a sensor




we have many probes and we have a map with the status of each one.

Is it possible to make a sound when the status appears as red once, without repeating the next update?

Thank you.

Hello Sandro,

I'm afraid this cannot be changed. This map object will always play the sound with each refresh as long as the amount of "alarm objects" is greater than 0. What you could do, would be to acknowledge the alarm. That's the only way you can "tell" PRTG that you took notice of it so to say.

Kind regards,
