So, the SID field in the sensor table is an auto-increment value... this 
is where you would have to modify it... but it is of course this way for 
a reason... and there are risks to consider if and / or when you modify 

Do you have multiple sensors, if so.. .how will they get a unique sid 
etc etc etc....
