Alarm for Camera Tag

Hello, I have configured a Camera tag for my system but I would like to also configure an Alarm tag to alert the users if connectivity to that Camera URL is lost. Currently, if that connectivity is lost, the video stream just appears "frozen" in the dashboard no matter how much time passes -- i.e., showing the last displayed frame as a still image. But this is the same observed behavior if the connectivity were merely degraded -- i.e., a still image. Our preference would be for some other indication -- an Alarm if possible -- that the URL connection is no longer resolving at all.

Thanks for the comments. I have verified that the camera tag does not provide a status value which can be tied to an alarm (like a comm port tag) and have created a feature request based on your notes.
