Multi Sensor for Garage Door Blue on Dashboard when Closed

My Garage door sensor is blue on the ST dashboard when closed, I would like it to be grey or not active like other lights/switches.

AFAIK, the only way is to edit the DTH for the device and change the display color.

I’ve done that in the past, but I gave up doing it. Every time the DTH is updated you have to re-enter your changes again. If the DTH you’re using is stable/not changing then it’s less of a hassle.

How did you edit the DTH? This was picked up by ST automatically without a custom DTH, so as far as I can see there is nothing to edit.

Yup, sorry, forgot to mention that this only works if you’re using a custom DTH that you have access to edit in your IDE.

If this is important enough to you, if you can find a custom DTH that works w/your garage open/closed sensor, you can replace the DTH that was auto-assigned to your sensor w/that custom DTH and then edit it.

Or, you can enjoy the blue. :slight_smile:

You could create a new DTH from template and use the standard DTH that it’s assigned to now.

Then edit your new custom device handler.
