Break sensor status, inheritance



Sensors linked to a device in a group feed their status through to the group, If one sensor is failed, this accumulates to a sensor in the group being failed. Is there a way to block inheritance of a sensor to a group, or to an upstream group/probe?

Hi there,

It's not possible to exclude individual sensors from a group if you configured notification triggers in the group settings. I would recommend to use Libraries for custom group notifications. In a Library you can configure your own sensors and add custom triggers.

Kind regards
