Hello Stuart,

Thank you very much for your contact.

Do I understand you correctly that you intend to monitor a server and to trigger a notification as soon as the server is up and running? I do understand your request as you wish to be notified as soon as someone starts your CA.

This CA should response on a certain port, maybe even HTTP/HTTPS. If so, please check out our Port sensor. This sensor allows you to define a certain sensor state if a port is either up or down.

If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.
