    4343By default, the devices are created automatically by the plugin accordingly to the messages received from the RFXtrx. 
    4444 
    45 To disable the automatic creation of devices, you can access the Advanced tab of the RFXtrx Controller device and set the value of the variable named "!AutoCreate" to 0. Then push the red button "Save" at top right in the dasjboard to validate your change.

     47Even while keeping the automatic creation mechanism (variable "!AutoCreate" set to 1), it is possible to disable the creation of certain devices. It can be useful for example if your RFXtrx Controller device receives data from your neighbors's devices like weather sensors and you don't want them in your Vera dashboard. To do that, you have to use the new variable "!DisabledDevices" to list the devices you don't want to be created by the plugin. You can access this variable in the Advanced tab of the RFXtrx Controller device. The value of this variable is a comma-separated list of "device id". The "device id" is the value of the attribute "altid" you can get for each Vera device in the advanced tab. 
     48Here is an example of value that will disable the creation of two devices, an Oregon temperature sensor and a Blyss switch device: "TS/T1/1537,LS/L6.0/9C4B/E1". Note that you will have to delete manually the unwished devices that are already created. After updating the variable, push the red button "Save" at top right in the dashboard to validate your change.

    4750Few devices can be created manually by the user using the Settings tab of the RFXtrx Controller device. 
     
    6467=== How to adjust the value reported by a weather sensor === 
    6568 
    66 ... 
     69For each weather sensor managed by the plugin, you can setup the plugin to automatically adjust the value measured by the sensor. The formula that can be applied to the measured value x is: a*(x+b) + c 
     70Constants a, b and c have ti be set in variables on the device to be adjusted. These variables are available in the advanced tab of the weather devices. Here are the variables: 
     71 * constant a is set in variable "!AdjustMultiplier" 
     72 * constant b is set in variable "!AdjustConstant2" 
     73 * constant c is set in variable "!AdjustConstant" 
    6774 
    6875=== How to repeat ON/OFF trigger for a light/switch device === 
    6976 
    70 Set the variable !RepeatEvent to 1 using the Advanced tab of the device: the event will be triggered even when the state is unchanged. 
     77Set the variable "!RepeatEvent" to 1 using the Advanced tab of the device: the event will be triggered even when the state is unchanged. 
    7178 
    7279=== How to avoid event trigger for a smoke/motion/door sensor device === 
    7380 
    74 Set the variable !RepeatEvent to 0 using the Advanced tab of the device: the event will be triggered only when the sensor state is changed. 
     81Set the variable "!RepeatEvent" to 0 using the Advanced tab of the device: the event will be triggered only when the sensor state is changed.
