[SOLVED] devices being deleted when adding new devices
« on: March 21, 2015, 11:15:59 am »
i have some home easy magnetic switches, i have only configured one so far, i configured it using DEVICE_CATEGORY_SECURITY_SENSOR   4 and DEVICE_SUBCATEGORY_DOOR 1, but every time i add another one using auto create the door sensor disappears.
I make backups before i do anything now but it happens all the time, i have to reconfigure scenes and PLEG if don't, do you have any idea why this happening ?
the auto create is creating them as a binary light...

You can only change device type using plugin UI (managed devices tab).
If not, yes, you will loose these devices at the next reload.

If no other type is proposed by the plugin in the UI tab, that means the plugin does not allow other types  for this device.
