Change Presence fob from car to person?


(Brian Smith) #1

If I recall, when I added my two fobs I was asked if it was a person or a car. Is there a difference when choosing and, if necessary, how can I change it after I have already added it as a certain type?

Haven’t tried it, but my guess is that you will have to delete it and re-add, which is a drag as if you have any SmartApps installed that reference it, you’ll need to uninstall and reinstall those as well.

Yeah, that is what I was afraid of. I might reach out to support on this one to see if it something that can be changed on the back end. It seems like it should be. I don’t need it now, but it is good to know in the future.

What they need is a wizard interface that will replace one device with another and associate all the smartapps assigned. I’ll have to put that in as a separate thread here as a feature request. Devices die, so we need an easy way to replace them and not have to reinvent the wheel every time.
