A way to ping network devices and alert when they are not responding

Sorry if this has already been asked, but I searched the forms and didn't come up with anything that fits my needs. I have a few network devices that only communicate via an http SSH portal.

Is there a way for the hubitat to ping certain IP addresses at set intervals throughout the day and alert me if they are not responding?

I thought about getting some Z-Wave or zigbee plugs that monitor power and alert when power decreases to below 1 amp like I do with my washing machine, but pinging the IP is more beneficial because it can alert me, not only if it is turned off, but if it has no network connectivity..


I use this.

You might be able to use on of the network presence devices as well. Something like the iPhone presence one.

This is precisely what I was looking for! Thank you.
