If I update a custom device type int he IDE for a device that is already added, do I need to remove and re-add it in order to see the changes?
Nope. It will update. It can take 3-5 minutes for the changes to propogate though.
Also, someitmes you have to kill the app a few times. Usually 2 times. It seems the app needs this to update the UI if anyhting in the UI changed for the device type.
Make sure you re-publish after making changes.
@tslagle13 What if it is battery powered? Wake up?? Say Fibaro Motion Sensor.
The next time the device checks in it should use the new code.
Gracias to all. I thought this was the case (the answers above), just wanted to check and make sure.
The actual device talks to the device (driver) in ST, the ST device code doesn’t get loaded into the physical device.
You only need to wake a battery device if you want to push parameter setting changes to it.
Yes…I concur… Waiting on 3 more of the Fibaro Motion Sensors. As soon as I get those, will set them as per your suggestions to change the lux parameters. Thanks!
