Notification based on multiple PRTG sensors



I have voice routers where I am currently using two sensors on the FXO ports to detect when those ports are off-hook and in use. Is there a way to configure a notification if both sensors change to a value of 2 then trip the trigger and notify? I don't want to know every time the sensor value changes to 2 only if BOTH sensors reach a value of 2 at the same time.

I guess the SENSOR FACTORY SENSOR wil be your best bet.
You can add the values of the two original sensor channels and set the factory sensor to a down state when the added value equals 4

Another option is to use limits to set each sensor down with the according value, and get a combined status with the Business Process sensor.

Yes, the Factory Sensor is exactly what I needed. I was able to make this work on 2, 3, and 4 port setups and increment the value each time when I need the sensor to change to a down state.
