BACnet Explorer - How do I write to the Device Object identifier

Most BACnet devices set the device object identifier via some custom configuration software or physical switch on the device. A small and growing amount of devices allow you to configure the device's object identifier by writing to the device's object identifier using the BACnet protocol.

How do you write to the device's object identifier?

  1. Start CAS BACnet Explorer (version v2.01aQ or greater is required).
  2. Discover your device
  3. Right click on the "object_identifier" property of the device and select "Write property"
  4. Change the data value to your desired object identifier value and click the send button

If the device does not support this operation you will get an error similar to this
