Hi there, I’m just about to order a large batch of Photons and will be recording the ID of each one so that I can record which customer each one goes to. The reason for this is so I can see how many they have connected online and can start charging service fees appropriately.
In the assembly process, I will specify that each one be connected via serial and the ID be copied and pasted to a barcode printer which will then be printed out and physically stuck to the PCB.
Just before sending to the customer, I will then scan each barcode to make a list of IDs which can be related to that customer.
This will work fine, but has added precious minutes onto the assembly process of each unit, therefore increasing cost! Would it be possible for a barcode ID to be attached to each Photon by Particle before shipping? Could it be done simultaneously when specifying the ID? I’ve no doubt that this would be useful to anyone wanting to record IDs (without plugging in) for relating to products/customers/shipments etc.
