Thank you for your post.

You are right, it is not possible to add custom fields to a device/sensor. Unfortunately, currently there are no plans to include this feature in PRTG.

I you would like to have this implemented in PRTG, you can create a Feature Request so that other users can vote for it.

Kind regards,
