It would be the Timeout filter rather than the threshold filter, and that's fine to use if you only have a few hosts because I don't believe that is tracks separately for each Host like the Threshold filter can.
There is script that you can setup to alert by host and you can find it here: Script for monitoring Host Check in times
Let me know if you have any problems with editing or implementation and I can help you.
