Re-nameing of Mobile devices

With two or more devices of the same model it is very hard to know which is which when for example sending push notifications in block scenes.

An option to manually rename devices would be great. (No it can´t be renamed on the devices as it´s the manufacturer / model name which is hardcoded)

Apple iPhone iOS allows users to change name of the mobile phone and tablet. I'm surprised that devices from so great manufacturer such as Sony with advanced mobile system such as Android installed on them does not allow users to change name of devices. Are you sure that there is no such option on your device? Maybe it is just difficult to find it due to great number of user configuration options available?

 

I agree that it might be nice to have requested option on HC to rename devices, but still for great number of users (Apple owners) is completely unnecessary. I suggest you to ask Sony or Google if they can add this option if it is really missing.

    One can change the phones bluetooth name but this is the hardcoded information, manufacturer and model number. I doubt they will ever allow users to change that. 

     

    I would say that this is in Fibaros intrest and it should not be that hard to have a rename function.

    @Sankotronic, could you tell to us how fibaro get this information ? to be able to open a ticket to Google.

     

    Because it's not link with the modèle name, for example for my nexus 5x it's "LGE Nexus 5x"  but the modèle on my android system section is Nexus 5x.
