Can I add a custom value lookup to a sensor?



Hello, I am creating a custom device template and wanted to know if I can add a custom value lookup to a specific sensor, that will then populate to each channel of that sensor. Is this possible? Or am I going to have to add the lookup to each channel individually?

I am attempting to delete the channels from the XML template so they will get repopulated on device creation and to avoid stale channels.

Hello julianmaze,

Thank you for contacting us,

For each sensor with a custom channel, you can Define a Lookup file to use with the option 'Value Lookup' in the Sensor Channel Settings So once you add the lookup and then create the device template, the lookup will be attached to the corresponding channel in the template.

I hope that information is useful.
