Hello there
Thank you for reaching us.
You can use our state trigger to notify you when there is a sensor in the Uknow state. This action will happen regardless of the number of sensors that are in this state. You can also summarize if you don't what to receive a notification per sensor. You can also play around with the dependencies, in order to be more efficient with the notifications.
Please see the following articles for more information:
