service wait for prereqs

I tried out to find a hint in docs - but I failed (PEBCAK is likely).

Is there a way to wait starting a service until a device is ready for being used?
E.g. - a bmc-proxy service should wait with the first start until the serial device which is internally connected to BMC appears in /dev
This device won't disappear until someone manually extracts the BMC mechanically from the machine or the BMC breaks (which causes power loss anyway, so doesn't matter ...).

Best regards
