When my Z-Wave door sensor's battery ran out, I changed it and checked if it still appeared in my Domoticz interface. The problem is that my device changed its ID and I had to redo all the trigger configuration (call program when opened).

I searched online and found that Domoticz has a "replace" feature when clicking on Edit of a device in the measure/temperature view, but only for measure sensors (temperature, light,...) which allows users to keep history of the data.

Replace device

Do Domoticz users have this problem too?

Is it the same on other hubs (Jeedom, Vera,...)?

    Device ID or node ID? The node ID should only change on a learn mode even which replacing the batteries could trigger if it sends out a node info on boot, but then it would have to be removed and then readded to the network to get a different ID as if it was removed it would not be in the network at all.

    It's a Domoticz ID : when I remove/add a device using Domoticz, it creates as many sub-devices per device capacity (class commands if you prefer) and each line of sub-device has an ID linked to the main device ID. I'll post some screenshots later for a better understanding.

    @Goufalite, I am curious to know if the Device ID would would change every time you remove the battery?

    @sob It's not the Device ID, it's the ID in Domoticz : it thinks it is a new device so it increments its counter in the devices database. It should match the Device ID, which puzzles me !
