Other Useful Methods¶
Device Handlers have available to them other APIs for features like scheduling, storing data, and making HTTP requests. While not often necessary for Device Handlers, these features can be useful for certain use cases.
Device Handlers can schedule future executions, just like SmartApps.
You can learn about scheduling in the Scheduling guide.
Device Handlers can persist small amounts of data across exections using
state, just as SmartApps.
Note that Atomic State is not available to Device Handlers.
You can learn about storing data in the Storing Data With State guide.
