    Update thermostat names automatically

    I have 8 Ecobees and 24 remote sensors. I recently changed the thermostat and remote sensor names into a more coherent naming pattern. The new names don't show up in Homeseer. Is there a way to issue a re-read command to update the thermostat names? I waited evernight to see if there was a daily update, nope. I restarted the Homeseer box, nope. I deleted the plugin, and reauthorized it, nope.

    Any suggestions other than typing in the changes for all thermostats and remote sensors?

    The only way to do that, right now, is to manually delete all your Ecobee devices from the device management page, and then to restart the plug-in to let it recreate all the devices with the correct names. However that's not a good idea if you have a lot of events/scripts already using those devices as you would need to update them.

    I guess I could add an "update names" button in the config page. I don't want this to be automatic though because some users are overwriting the device names in HS.
