Configure daemon defaults?

Ive installed sensord which is a daemopn to log the diagnsotic
informaion of my computer to syslog.

Everything works starts up at bootup and logs all the
information to syslog.
Ive changed this to 60s
The default setting to log data is every 30m but i want to change it to 60s

I can do it from the command line as in

sudo sensord -l 60s
Ive tried going in to the configuration file below in etc/default/sensord and changing but im
getting no logging of data in syslog when i do this!

Is this the wrong method of changing default settings?

# Interval between scanning for alarms; e.g., 30s, 1m, 1h
# Interval between logging sensor measurements; e.g., 30s, 1m, 1h
# LOG_INTERVAL=30m Ive changed this to 60s
# Syslog facility to use
# Libsensors config file to use
# CONFIG_FILE=/etc/sensors.conf
# Chips to scan
