Can I create a notification only for favorite sensors?




is there a possibility to create an own notification trigger for the selected favorite sensors in the menu sensors - favorites? I would like to select favorites from any desired sensor within different devices. for example the most critical ones. Of course i could create a new trigger for every sensor with a defined template but it would be easier to choose the favorites and do it there for all of them so it "inherits from a favorite master"?

Maybe there is a solution or a creative way to do so.

Thanks for your support.

The easiest solution I can think of would be to add the tag "favorite" to all your favorite sensors, and then create a library based off the tag "favorite". Then you can create a notification trigger for this library. This will allow you the notification you're looking for, and you can then control the addition and removal of sensors by adding and removing the tag.

Does this sounds like a workable solution for you?
