Configuration Using the "@type"

The "@type" is used to set two required configuration parameters:
  • devEUI
  • deviceProfileID

The devEUI is a 64-bit globally-unique Extended Unique Identifier (EUI-64) assigned by the manufacturer, or the owner, of the end-device. It should be set in the "@type" of the thing.

The deviceProfileID is the unique identifier for the device profile specific for this device (class). Device profiles can be managed through the API. See the appropriate help page.

There is an optional applicationID parameter. If omitted it will use the default generated application (highly recommended). However, applications can be managed through the device driver API and the thing description can be set to use a specific application.
