I am using two SOLO UNO on a Raspberry Pi under Ubuntu 18.04. In order to differentiate the two devices I would need an ID of the serial device. Unfortunately, the ID of both is the same. Do you know, how I could flash a serial number on the "Texas Instrument Virtual COM Port" or could you tell me the part number of the installed Texas Instrument device?


In the figure below, the serial number is marked in red.



Thank you very much for your helping hand!

At the moment we don’t support this approach at last natively on our side but we can’t exclude ubuntu/raspberry have already a working solution for solving your problem. 


An alternative approach that works on Ubuntu too, in order to differentiate the devices, is to use the “Device Address” of your SOLO devices.

  1. You can set a different address of any SOLO in your network using the Motion Terminal. You find the variable in: Action / Configuration / Device Address*. Keep in mind that the address of the device will change only after a power recycling. 
  2. At this point you can use our SoloPy (python) library to communicate with SOLO and use Python in general to make any consideration and request to a specific SOLO in your network.
