I often check the log to see if any relevant activities have happened, like a door opening, or a motion sensor going off. The problem is the multi sensors flood the logs with temperature data really badly
I agree. Also it would be really nice to be able to get battery level or temperature readings isolated from the others, so that I can have a snapshot of current values for all relevant things.

As an example, I wanted to check to see when the last time my mailbox was opened. To find out I had to scroll through 3 pages of logs indicating temperature sweeps throughout the day. Also, when I found the open/close event, like everything else it indicates how many hours ago something happened instead of a date/time which can get a little confusing after a few days.
My wife and I went on a mini-vacation for memorial day weekend and we wanted to make sure the house sitter arrived when she said she would to watch our dogs, after finding out she had I thought all was good. The housesitter was related closely to my Wife, but due to past experiences I was a little concerned about trusting her with our dogs (They’re like my kids). 2 days into our trip I remembered I had put a open closed sensor on their dog food bin as a way to help graph out feeding times (long story) bringing that up I discovered she hadn’t fed the dogs once since we left. That really has nothing to do with the subject, except that this would had all been a lot easier to find out if there wasn’t pages of irrelevant information to go through.
maybe there are people who want to monitor the temperature every 7 minutes
I agree. Filter please!
I realize this isn’t exactly what is being requested here, but thought I’d point it out:
If you drill down into the settings menu for a specific thing OR into any group of Things you’ve created, and THEN pull up the log, it filters to only show the log events related to those items.
Right, but some items spam the log, like the multi-sensors with irrelevant data.
Ill add my request to this as well. The multi sensors are nice but I don’t need to know the temperature on the sensor on my garage door 30 times per day.
