Sensor type not showing in new UI



Can you please tell me how I can easily see what the sensor type is in the new UI? In the old UI, it used to be displayed in the bar along with the sensor name (I think).

Knowing the sensor type is often very helpful, especially when troubleshooting them.

Thanks - Simon

Just click on the sensor and you will see it in the top right Corner:

Hi there,

"quenter" is correct, the information that were above the sensor are now on the right side in a box.

Best regards.
