How do you differentiate between two lights with the same electrical signature

Good Morning!
How do you differentiate between two lights with the same electrical signature… both are fluorescent led lights & both turn on/off with the same signature?… I have one in my garage & one in my laundry room…

Sense can’t tell the difference. When the light is detected it will just show up as a light, without a name, then it’s your job to name it.

If it already showed up in the app you should be able to turn on one of the lights and see if it appears, if it does great, give it the appropriate name. If it doesn’t then go to the other one. Eventually sense should see that both appear as long as both turn on.

All that being said, it could confuse the 2 if they are the exact same, but normally the room isn’t what’s important, it’s knowing what the power is going to, in this case a light.

They might be detected as different devices if they are on different legs (L1, L2) of your house supply.
