Being able to link by serial number


Currently you can only link by being in linking mode. It would be immensely useful to be able to link devices to Mayhem by using their Serial Number, or at least someway that doesn't require repeatedly hitting the set button.

Hitting the set button is only a minor inconvience for things like light dimmers and ApplianceLincs, but for devices that are mounted in more remote places, such as motion sensors and TriggerLinc, this is actually a pretty big killer. The set button is hidden behind a panel that requires a screw driver to remove. That makes it difficult enough that even I don't want to go play with my motion sensor with Mayhem. :-/

Changed type to Feature, not part of the current release

Linking by ID is not difficult to implement. However, it is beyond the scope of the initial planned design. Also, we'd need to find a low impact way to surface this feature without disrupting the simplicity of the current user experience. So moving to a vnext feature.
