[tlug] disabling smartd temperature change reporting on scsi drives

I am trying to work out how to disable smartd temperature change
reporting on a scsi drive.  I found this comment in the smartd manual

       -I ID  Ignore   device  Attribute  ID  when  tracking  changes  in  the

              Attribute values.  ID must be a decimal  integer  in  the  range

              from  1  to  255.   This  Directive modifies the behavior of the

              '-p', '-u', and '-t' tracking Directives and has no effect with-

              out one of them.

              This  is useful, for example, if one of the device Attributes is

              the disk temperature (usually Attribute 194 or 231). It's annoy-

              ing  to  get  reports  each  time the temperature changes.  This

              Directive may appear multiple times for a single device, if  you

              want to ignore multiple Attributes.

But because I am using scsi drives there is not ID.

       -A, --attributes

              Prints   only   the   vendor  specific  SMART  Attributes.



              For SCSI devices the "attributes" are obtained from the tempera-

              ture and start-stop cycle counter log pages. Certain vendor spe-

              cific  attributes  are  listed if recognised. The attributes are

              output in a relatively  free  format  (compared  with  ATA  disk


Which translates to

# sudo smartctl -A /dev/sda

Anyone have any ideas how to do this.
