I bought the smarthub a month ago or so. I live in a condo and I think some of my neighbors may have temp and humidty sensors as well. What's the best way to know which one is mine? They all look the same in the add devices section.

If there aren't too many, add them all, then find which one is yours by removing the batteries, or gently warming or cooling it. Now you can remove the others from your app.

So the one I remove the battery's from will show up dead in the console?

Yes, though it may take a couple of hours to show as "not transmitting". Warming/cooling will be quicker.

cool I will give it a shot and report back.  I can't just rename it because I have no idea which one is actually mine.  :-)

I realized that after I hit "send"..  It will help in the future maybe if others install new sensors, etc..  Warming and cooling seems like a great idea..

Just be kind to your sensor! No hair dryers, heat guns, etc.

On to the next issue.  ;)  I took the battery's out of the humidty / temp sensor for a couple hours and none of the ones in my list came up as offline.  So maybe the hub doesn't even see it at all?  It definitely connects no problem to my display here in the house.  Any ideas?

Rachell already did all the above.  I the summary with a multi sensor setup or in tight conditions it's basically horrible to troubleshoot.  Last night I gave up did the above and sat the sensor on the unit.  :-)

Josh,

It appears that particular sensor does not work with a smarthub  ;-(
