Moving... Forgot Names of my Sensors!

I was quite frustrated at the end of packing up our old house before moving to our new place and I just grabbed all the sensors off the walls and put them in one box... Oops. Now I can't tell which glass break sensor is called Mstr Bed and which is called Kitchen. Any way of easily figuring them out again? Entry sensors are relatively easy, it's more the motion and glass sensors I'm stuck on.

Why go nuts?  Put them where you want and rename them in the app.  Simple!

If you look at the device settings online or in the mobile app you can see the list of sensor names. Then, go into each of the sensor settings one at a time to see its serial number. Then, match that to the sensor that physically has the respective serial number on it.

With the base station hooked up, go into test mode and push the test buttons on each sensor, the base station announces what you've named them.
