What do I need to take care of during device installation prior commissioning?

Example for the position of the UUID on an AXC F 2152

The UUID (Universally Unique Identifier) is required for adding a device to Proficloud. It is printed externally on the device’s housing. After the installation and commissioning of the device, the UUID may not be visible anymore. Thus, it is mandatory to document the UUIDs during the device installation. 

We recommend to additionally document the respective device designation within your system or a unique, descriptive name for the device. This enables you to identify the device again within your system locally.
