    Why do controllers have 2 names?

    When using the mobile app, it seems the UX is displaying the “sub” name. The website shows both a “primary” and “sub” name.

    indont understand why controllers need 2 names? Am I missing the point?

    I do Have several 8 button controllers and the “sub” name makes complete sense; one sub name for each button on the controller.

    Is there a common naming strategy for controllers? Because I use the mobile app a lot, I proceeded with duplicating the primary and sub names (except for 8 button controllers).

    {floor}-{name}-{function}

    downstairs-dinningRoom-light
    outsode-fence-light
    etc.

    this way I can easily find and understand my controllers in the mobile app.
