Cloud- and LAN-connected DevicesΒΆ

Cloud- and LAN-connected devices are devices that use either a third-party service, like the Ecobee thermostat, or communicate over the LAN (local area network) like the Sonos system. These devices require a unique implementation of their Device Handlers. Cloud- and LAN-connected devices use a Service Manager SmartApp along with a Device Handler for authentication, maintaining connections, and device communications. This guide will walk you through Service Manager and Device Handler creation for both of these scenarios.
