I need a custom file aging sensor that monitors a .txt file in a share folder that's older than 15 minutes. Does anyone have a sample script?

Hello there,

Have you already taken a look at our file sensor? This sensor shows Last modified of a defined file in a channel and you can configure according limits for it.

Please let us know if it fits your requirements.


Kind regards,

We have different file names that go into the folder all day long so this wouldn't work, I'm not looking for the same file name. I need something that would allow me to just look for a file that ends with a '.txt' extension that's older than 15 minutes. Just curious is that's something that's available.

In that case you need to create an according script.
