Newbie question - can i add custom triggers? or request new triggers?

i need a trigger that tells me if i have actual internet connectivity (or not)? there is one for wifi which only tells me that my router is connected … ? it seems logical there would be a companion trigger for actual internet access? am i just too new and slow to see that anywhere? thanks

Well, there is no trigger explicitly for this, but you can achieve your objective using the Periodic trigger, combined with simple test for connectivity.

Here's an example macro, which I've left at the default Periodic Trigger setting of 1 min, Every day, 8:30am - 5:30pm. Of course, you need to adjust as needed. You could set it to 1 sec, but I don't recommend it. Try to use as infrequent interval as possible.

Example Output

You will get a notification like when when the status changes


MACRO:   Notify When Internet Service is Online/Offline
