BacNet Discovery -> Use Description instead of Object_Name if available


  • When discovering bacnet points, would it be possible to set the point's 'Name' to the value returned by the Description property instead of the Object_Name property? Perhaps maybe only if Description is actually populated, and if not revert to Object_Name? On most controllers, Object_Name is tied directly to the hardware (AI-1, for instance) and is in no way related to the actual point data being represented. Description, on the other hand, is usually the writable property that describes what the point value represents.
