Hello,

 

There is a way to see if a thing with a specific name already exists.

 

Here is some code to achieve this:

result = 'thing doesnt exist';
let thingName = 'YourThingName';
if (Things[thingName]) {
   result = 'thing exist';
}

This code will check if there is a thing with the name that you have already exists or not.

Jens
