Changing a third party BACnet device's object identifier using VTS


The object identifier of a BACnet device (device id) must be unique internetwork-wide, different vendors use different methods for calculating the device id default value. When integrating devices from different vendors sometimes it become necessary to change a device's default object id.




Third party BACnet devices

If the BACnet device is a Continuum device (bCX4040 or b3) Continuum provides a mechanism for changing the default device id.

For a third party BACnet device VTS can be used to write to the Object Identifier of the device in order to change the device id, note that this will only work if the device manufacturer has made the object identifier for the device object writable.
