hi guys

We've just got an alarm for an HTTP sensor that has been fine for over a year. Nothing seems to have changed on the device and on check there is no specified target url in the sensor settings. What was this successfully reporting on up until now?

Cheers Sam

Hi Samuel,

In it's default setting with only "http://" it will do "http://ip_or_dnsname_of_parent_device" and then acts on the HTTP response.

Kind regards,

Erhard
