non that i can find. there is a multi edit feature under management but does not seem to be extended to adding sensor functions, you can scan for template devices in an ip range, but in the case the PRTG does not find them i see no way to do it in a batch

You can deploy sensors on multiple devices by creating a Device Template and then use it in a auto discovery. You first create a device and add all the sensors to it that you need, then you can create a template from that device by going Right click> Create Device Template.

Once you created your template you can run a Auto Discovery with Template which will add the sensors that are in the template.
