I am fine with an optional string field.  If the string is not defined, that should mean it is the default sensor.

There are some cases that a device has multiple proximity sensors, for instance in an automotive system. My Honda has multiple proximity sensors in its front and back bumpers. Also in tablet / ultrabook, you have a proximity sensor and also a camera that can also use as proximity device. Camera can detect user near / far as an proximity event.
