Re-arrange sensors on 2day overview



Is it possible to set your "top sensors" so that they show up under the 50 that is allowed when viewing the 2day over view of the root directory?

We have all the groups sorted(which is great), but we'd like to only show out top 50 when viewing the 2day section(as the sensors refresh in their boxes).

Basically, it's on a TV sitting on the wall, and we'd like to tailor it a little better :)

the order of the sensors can not be changed, sorry.

The first 50 sensors as they appear in the device tree will be displayed.

Have you already thought about using Maps?

Maybe take a look at this blog article

Hmmm thank you for that, the maps look good. The only issue now is that they don't seem to refresh at a given interval?

when you are editing the map, go to the "Get HTML"

to show the map in a separate browser using one of the two URLs.

at the bottom right you are then able to select the refresh time of the map. Default is 30sec.

If you have several maps you can have the browser rotate through the maps as well.
