    Improve Log Clarity - Floor vs Room vs Name

    I name a lot of my light switches like this:
    Floor: Basement
    Room: Theater
    Name: Ceiling

    However, the way that the logs work make it very difficult to distinguish when there are multiple lights in the same room. For example, this is from the log:

    Code:
    Device: Basement Theater kW Hours Set to 0.931 (0.931 kW Hours)
    However, I have 3 zwave devices that are within Basement Theater... Ceiling, Perimeter, and Sconce.

    From the logs, I have no idea which light/device this is. Can the logs be updated to include either the FULL name "floor - room - device name",or maybe at least leave off the "floor" and just go with "room - device name" if for some reason it'd have to be truncated.

    Any chance this feature request could be considered? If this is the wrong place to post something like that, could someone please direct me to the correct place? This should be a fairly easy change I would assume.

    Are you wanting this change in HS3 or HS4? If it is for HS4 it will probably have better visibility in the HS4 beta forum. If it is for HS3 your are probably out of luck. I doubt that Ho will be making many (if any) changes to HS3.

    I am curious. What is making these log entries? The reason I ask is that I name my devices in a similar manner and I see all sorts of log messages that have floor/room/device name in the logs. These log messages are coming from a "Type/Error" classification of Z-Wave or Device Control. Because of this I am guessing that the log messages you are referring to are form some other subsystem.

    Here are some of the log messages I get in HS3.

      I'd prefer in HS4

      These are the default log levels and entries... I don't know why they are different than yours? I'm using HS4 beta right now.
