Humidity sensor with serial number

Question

Hello, I've been trying to use the REST API to make my own application and in order for this to work I'm heavily dependant on the Serial Number which each Fibaro sensor has. 
The problem is that Fibaro doesn't seem to have any Fibaro Sensor which also measure the Humidity. So I have bought a Cleverio Humidity sensor (

 ) but the problem is that in the REST  Api it isn't provided a serial number under the "properties". I am also not able to edit these "properties" in the api. 
I then bought a Netatmo weather station, but the problem is the same here, no serial number.

 

My question is, do anyone know of a Humidity sensor from Fibaro or a 3rd party humidity sensor which I can connect to my Home Center 2 which contains a serial number?

Why you need serial number? I assume you need unique identity for every device... in this case you can use device IDs. They are unique for every device

    I didn't explain how my application works thoroughly, my bad.  The reason we needed serial number was because we are using multiple Home Centers and saving all the sensors related to these in a database. So every sensor for each Home Center is saved in a "sensor" table in the DB, which is why we couldn't use the ID as a unique key because of the chance that two sensors of same type having the same ID in both home centers.

    Instead of using serial number we will use the DeviceId and the Home Center Guid put together as a unique key. this solved our problem with using serial number.
