Yes I'm agree because at that time the name is automatically made by <room>+<type>+<prefix>.

So for example if you add three FGS211 in the same room two for a riadiators and one for a light then we get

- livingroom onoff 1

- livingroom onoff 2

- livingroom onoff 3

It is hard to know which one is the light!

It could be nice to be able to have our own name. If the name is empty then the actual solution is great ;)

For light you should choose type 'light' and better suffix for radiators is left/right.

If you name them like that you should have following names:

- livingroom on/off left

- livingroom on/off right

- livingroom light


Names are generated from list entries to be able to use text-to-speech when customer chooses voice notifications. If custom names are allowed it is very likely that people will enter names that are unrecognizable by text-to-speech.

I'm not really convince about that!

And it dos not sound strange to have a type radiator when you do domotic :)!How many people use TTS ?

What about using the description field as devices names (in the Web UI) and adding a TTS field which is computed with the identifier we actually have in the UI? This way TTS users will keep understandable vocal names, and we will have customizable and readable ones ;)

Now it's possible to add your own room name and suffix.

We are still working on solution to enable more customizations.

I would definitely like to change the names of each module to one that I come up with myself. For me that would be a much bigger benefit than having to compromise on TTS.

If you can add a new contact, a new user, or named a room you must have edit or delete them.

This is really important if we made ​​test or you make a mistake, you can not go back.

I would like to have a check-box to select. (check if: Use Description as name)

and if it is selected then the DESCRIPTION shall be shown as the visible name for the device/endpoint. That way we can still have the room and type, but for the users (like me) that need a custom name we can have that to.
