Default Temperature monitor at specific point

I am simulating a simple experiment which studies the heat transfer properties.

I was wondering if there is a way of adding a monitor at a specific point within the mesh such that when that point reaches a certain temperature, the simulation will stop and give me the time taken. Can anyone give me advice or suggest a solution?

Thanks in advance for any help

I don't believe you can stop the simulation just using plain Fluent. What you can do is output the monitor as a file and see the temporal history and then stop it manually.
