SmartStart: Use Empty Device Name

Under Hubitat for Android 1.5.1, when adding multiple devices to the SmartStart list, device naming does not work as I expect.

After the first device is added, subsequent devices added by scanning a QR code are assigned the Name and Location values of the previously added device. In other words, the most recently added device is always added with the Name and Location attributes of the one added just before it. This is confusing and requires manual renaming to keep track. Keeping the previous Location might make sense for building out a room at a time, but for Name it would be probably be better to allow the user to input the text for each device.

This request has a greater impact if the Name and Location are adopted by the hub as requested here:
