Factory Sensor - Average of last 15 minutes



Dear all,

is it possible to calculate the average of the last 5 minutes of a value with a Factroy Sensor?


We get from a JSON File the Temperature from our air condition, in detail from the air blown into the room.

Cause of the technic the AC works this value goes from 14 to 20 every few minutes.

The data is read from the JSON in one Sensor with utiple Channels.

And we extract the one temperatur with a Factory Sensor.

But a value that changes every few minutes from 14 to 20 and back is hard to monitor, I would like to have the average of the last e.g. 5-15 minutes so I can set better thresholds.

Hello there,

I'm afraid, it is not possible to calculated an average from different scans of one sensors. PRTG only shows the current data here and therefore, the factory sensors also only use the latest scanned results. ​

Kind regards,
