Thank you for your message.

PRTG has a dependency feature which you can use in that case, to make the sensor #2854 dependent on #2853. Please, have a look to this manual : https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/dependencies

You will also find an example of utilization of the dependencies right here: https://www.paessler.com/support/how-to/device-dependency

If you have further questions, let us know.

Kind regards.
