Good evening everyone.
I’ve made several BME680 Sensor Modules for a small non-profit and outfitted a RPi4 with the gateway installed to present a display of the environmental conditions within an assisted work warehouse. So far all is working as expected.
The senior operations manager has asked if each ESP8266-BME680 module, programmed with the WebThings framework, can display a unique UUID as they wish to extract and differentiate that data at a later stage for further processing and logging. The UUID implementation is straightforward but i can’t find an example of a Thing being described with a easily shown UUID. Any pointers where I can look for an example or a reference as to how to approach this request. The ThingProperty “text” displays as a truncated string, which can be edited. I need it to be shown as the full 37 character ascii string, (16 hex bytes), and fixed, not editable.
Thanks in advance.
