Trigger on multiple sensor events



Hi, Is it possible to set up a state trigger of multiple sensor events? Example. I have two switches monitored. If one goes down no triggered notification. If both goes down an I would like to get an e-mail trigger notification.

Thank you for your message.

Please, have a look to the Business Process sensor whose manual is right here: https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/business_process_sensor

With this sensor, you can configure a channel whose state will be based on your switches state and the thresholds you have defined. Then, you only need to configure a notification trigger to trigger an alert when the sensor goes down.

Here is a video about the Business Process sensor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7nObMdGsS8

Kind regards.
