You can easily update the name of a sensor by going to the details of the particular sensor from the device list and clicking on the edit icon.
This applies for asset tags, door and entry sensors, and environmental sensors.
This functionality will soon be supported in all mobile apps as well.
By default, a door or environmental sensor will automatically be given a location based on where it was registered. You can more precisely set the location of a sensor by navigating to that particular sensor from the the device list.
Within the sensor details, go to Settings and Details and choose Refine placement on map.
For the T1 tag, the location will be triangulated based on the position of the cameras on the map. The accuracy of the location will rely on the cameras being properly placed on the map.
Upgrading the firmware for your D1 Door Sensor, E1 Environmental Sensor, or T1 Asset Tag is simple and fast. Unlike the cameras that automatically update their firmware, sensors must be manually updated. In the near future, they will be able to automatically update too.
To update any of these sensors, launch the Rhombus mobile application while near the sensors you want to update. From the home screen of the mobile app, go to Utilities and choose "Sensor Firmware Update".
From that screen, you'll see a list of all nearby sensors that can be updated. Simply select the sensors you want to update and choose Next. You might need to "activate" a sensor by opening a door, shaking the asset tag, or inserting a pin into the bottom of the climate sensor. The mobile app will apply the latest firmware to all sensors selected and give a final summary at the end.
In general, updating the firmware of your sensors should be a very rare occurrence.
