change device type
« on: May 05, 2018, 12:26:49 am »
Hi all !!!

I have some devices with a plug icon but they are being used as lights, and viceversa. I read in the f?rum that changeing the device type or category can solve it.

I do it and it Works fine but after a few minutes or after restarting the Vera controller, the icon return to the wrong one. I checked and the category/subcategory changes back to the original one (wrong one).

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance !

I have it. I contacted customer care and they sorted it out. Just follow these simple steps. For changing a wall plug icon to a light bulb icon

1. go to one of the bulbs in the settings area

2. click on Advanced and go down to SUBCATEGORY and change it to 8

3.reload the engine by clicking from the same menu on new service→ reload engine

4. refresh the page

Also check here the list of categories for the devices, this is what we use as a guide for this cases:
