Way to identify different devices


#1

I am working on a system that will have 2-3 Flex strips that are attached and need to be able to have them setup with different colors depending on application state and position. The most straightforward way I can see to do this is getting the serial number for each strip and putting that into my application config. Looking at the device though I don’t see a serial number.

Is there any way to do this?

Hey Nick and welcome to the forums,

you can read out the serial number of the devices, depending on the language you’re gonna use.

Regarding the simple examples on the blinkstick.com startpage it could be:

Python:

led = blinkstick.find_first():
print "    Serial:        " + led.get_serial()

C#:

BlinkStick led = BlinkStick.FindFirst();
string serial = led.Serial;
