Rename your sensors to customize the system for your home. Sensors have two names that can be renamed, the name the Display Hub+ announces out loud and the name displayed on the Frontpoint app. Both names can be updated to match, but you must rename both names through the steps outlined below.
Sensors have two names that can be renamed:
1 Vocal announcement names
Vocal announcement names are free-form names where you type in the preferred name for your sensor. The Display Hub+ will announce these names aloud when the sensor is triggered.
2 Displayed names
Displayed names are free-form names where you type in the preferred name for your sensor. These names are displayed on Myfrontpoint.com, in the Frontpoint mobile app, and in notifications from the mobile app.
The vocal announcement and displayed names are updated in different areas. While customers usually like to make these two names the same, they may be different if desired.
Please note: if you would like the two names to match and have changed one of the names, the other name will not update automatically- you must complete both steps to change both.
Tap the drop-down menu icon to access the settings tray on the Display Hub+.
Tap Advanced Settings and enter your master code.
Tap Edit Sensor.
Tap the pencil icon next to the sensor you want to make changes to.
Select a sensor name, or select Custom Description to type in a customer sensor name.
