Get current Photon-XXXX SSID?

Is there a way for me to get the SSID of the Photon itself? I’m using SoftAP for setup, and my device has a screen where I’d like to display the SSID. It gets confusing when setting up multiple units at once.



Let me ping someone that might be able to help, @Moors7 are you able to assist?

I’ve done a fair amount of searching and haven’t turned up anything conclusive. Those threads you linked to don’t seem to have an answer other than change it yourself and remember what you set it to.

I’d rather not do that, but I guess I could if needed. I sometimes fall back to the Particle app, which expects SSIDs with Photon in them, so it seems weird to make up my own Photon-xxxx SSIDs. I guess it wouldn’t hurt anything, but it seems hacky.

As the first thread mentions, System.get isn’t something we can do, though that seems like the obvious way if it were available.
