I decided to start using the new Smart Things app exclusively, ditching the Classic app going forward. Moved over my simple automations from the Classic to the new one. Especially, now that we can Arm/Disarm SHM in the new app via an automation, I think I am all set. My custom device handlers and apps are all showing up fine in the new app (for now!). All the more complex automations are on webcore and they work fine too.
My one point of frustration so far is the mobile presence sensor. I use both life360 and mobile presence to determine reliably if someone is home. I had a new mobile presence sensor created automatically when I enabled the corresponding option in new app’s settings. BUT, the name of this sensor is not customizable?
I don’t like the default name of the new app’s mobile presence sensors. Its too long and clunky - a combination of the account name and the phone’s name. Using this name in webcore does not feel great. I went to the old developer IDE to change the label on this sensor and it promptly got set back to the default name in a few minutes! I changed the name in the Classic app too, got same results.
Is there no way to customize the name of the new mobile presence sensors?
