How do I set a temperature sensor to only report periodically?

Occasionally you may want a temperature sensor to simply report the temperature at even intervals throughout the day without specifically reporting changes or hitting thresholds.

This can be achieved by setting the temperature sensor to Report-On-Change Mode, setting the increase and decrease values to 0, and setting the periodic reporting interval to, for example, one hour.

This results with the sensor only sending the periodic temperature report every hour.  Supervisory messages will also be sent at their own interval.
