Hi,

If i have library defined notification triggers for a particualr sensor type do i need to change any of the settings on the Notificaion Triggers of that sensor?

So i have created a library defined trigger for PING for a whole wad of devices...

In the sensor Notification Trigger do i leave it on the default "Inherit all triggers from parent objects and use the triggers defined above" or do i change it to "Only use the triggers defined above"

I dont want the PING sensors that belong to the library to use the default inhertied default trigger of down for 600 secons, down for 900 seconds etc

I just want it to use the library trigger it belongs too.

Thanks

In this case, you'll need to use Only use the triggers defined above, library based notifications are always used (i.e. they are not affected by that setting). Remember to stay below the 1,000 sensor mark per library node, otherwise the notification won't work.

Thanks for the clarification Stephan.

May it be worth in a future relase to amend the text to "Only use the triggers defined above, and/or library triggers below"

It's mentioned in the manual for notification triggers:

You cannot turn off trigger usage for the current sensor from a library here.
If you do not want to use any notification triggers from a library for this sensor, 
open the library and remove this sensor from it or refine the triggers on the 
Notification Triggers tab.
