Add a new sensor to several devices.



Is it possible to add a new sensor on several devices? There are several devices being monitored, but I need to add a new sensor to all the devices. Can you do it automatically?

Device Templates are what you're looking for. You'll need to create the template device (i.e. what the others should have in terms of Sensors), create a template and discover the devices using the template :)
