How to set maximum Value in Custom Sensor?



Hi there, how to set maximum value for a channel?

I want to check a limited storage space with a custom sensor (like the WMI Storage Sensor). The scaling has to fit.

I appreciate tips :)

Hi Espriomo,

If you want to adjust the scaling in a graph, you can do this in the channel settings. There you can configure a "Vertical Axis Scaling".
However, if you want to set the Sensor into a "Down" state if a certain value is reached, you can use the "Limit" feature of the channel settings.
