This is my first automation so apologies if it isn’t ‘perfect’ but it does what it needs to do, I’ll add some additional options like a time condition etc. if people want.

To get this automation to work you will need to add the following

Plex Media Server Integration
sabNZBD Integration

Once you have both of these setup, run the blueprint and make sure to find the ‘Plex Media Server Sensor’ it’s not a media_player.

The automation will wait for 0 active Plex users before returning to 100% download speed. Happy to add some further inputs if you would like some more flexibility around this?
