Hi Jerome, there is a section of "Status icons" in the Map Designer where you find icons which change the color, e.g. "StatusOnly XL", "TrafficLight" or "Sizeable icon on Status Related Background".

If you select a single sensor, the whole baground get green , yellow, red depending on your sensor status. If needed you can also put then a custom transparent icon (e.g. by custom HTML you can load any graphic into the map) in front of this sensor and get changed the color then by the sensor icon from background.

Perhaps this helps, Jo
