Schedule Sensors



Wanted to ask if it's possible to add a schedule to specific sensors or groups ?

Our company has multiple sites. We've configured Sensors to be grouped by sites (eg, Warehouse VIC, Head Office VIC, etc) The warehouses close earlier than other sites and the last man out closes the power to the building (which includes various network equipment)

Is there a way to pause specific sensors for certain times so they don't throw up errors and warnings ?

For this you have two options:

  1. You can pause the sensors of the group by schedules
  2. You can schedule the notifications of the sensors of the group by schedules

I would recommend to pause the sensors by schedule. You find the setting with right-click on your group > Edit > Settings > Schedules, Dependencies, and Maintenance Window. PRTG offers the most common schedule options in default. If you want to add more specific schedules from a certain time span, you need to create a new schedule in Setup > Account Settings > Schedules.

For more information about scheduling please take a look here
