I need to monitor a file. If the file exists and is less than 10 mins old. Then it should appear as down. My problem is that it does not use channel settings.

Hello Niels,

Thank you very much for your contact.

The File Sensor can monitor the time passed since a file was lastly modified in days, hours and minutes.

By configuring a lower error limit on the channel settings, you can define a time period in seconds, to change the sensor state to "down". Does this work for you?

Best,
Sebastian
