By default every activated device is assigned a random but unique generated name called Device ID:
Due to the nature of the Device ID being generated by the SDK itself, one can't identify a device and in particular not between device models.
However, it is possible to set up a custom name that will be associated with this particular device's generated Device ID.
To do this you need to specify this name when instantiating the DataCaptureContext:
context = DataCaptureContext.init(licenseKey: "YOUR SCANDIT LICENSE KEY HERE", deviceName: "YOUR DEVICE NAME HERE")

Note that this does not change the Device ID itself in any way, but it associates the generated device name to a new string. Therefore:
- As soon as a particular device name is set for the device - all previous and future usages of that device will be associated with that name in your account
- If you initialize the datacapture context again on the same device but with a different name - it will overwrite the previous device name in your account
- While the generated name is unique - the custom name is not. it is possible to give different devices the same name (e.g. if you want to identify a group of devices)
Please be aware that the device name is submitted and collected by Scandit Servers and you should not submitted Personal Identifiers through this functionality.
