Create a new sensor type for hardware templating



Currently we are eating up our sensor count for paused sensors that we use for hardware specific templates that we copy from VIA automation. Would there be a way we could have a sensor status that is called "template" that doesn't eat up sensor counts and doesn't show as a paused sensor. Please reach out to me for any additional info.

Currently we don't offer an option to enter a new status for sensors. This is also not planned in the future, but paused sensors by users are not counted in your license sensor count.
