Texts from Rules - tell us the specific sensor name

I have to set up a rule for every sensor in order to determine which sensor is sending me the text.  It would be sooooo much more efficient if I could just set up one rule to get a text when any motion sensor triggers (for example) and have it tell me the sensor name in the text.  As it is, you need to set up separate rules for every sensor you want to watch.  Easy fix . . . please . . .

Re: Texts from Rules - tell us the specific sensor name

In testing I see you get the sensor name for the water sensors and the door sensors with just one rule for all the sensors.  How hard can it be to add that same functionality to the motion sensors?  I have 6 of them and need six rules.  Not a big deal, but I don't get why the motion sensors are treated differently.  Please give us the sensor name . . .
