Window coverings
Window coverings device best practices.
A window coverings device should only be assigned the window_coverings device class if one of the following is not more applicable: curtains, blinds, sunshade.
There are a number of capabilities relevant for window coverings devices:
  • windowcoverings_state
  • windowcoverings_tilt_up
  • windowcoverings_tilt_down
  • windowcoverings_tilt_set
  • windowcoverings_closed
  • windowcoverings_set
In general there are two types of window coverings which should receive a subset of these capabilities:
window coverings that can only be controlled with up/down and stop commands
This type should only implement the windowcoverings_state capability and in case the device supports horizontal tilt of venetian blinds also the windowcoverings_tilt_up and windowcoverings_tilt_down capabilities.
window coverings that can be controlled by sending a command with a precise open/close level
This type should only implement the windowcoverings_set capability and in case the device supports horizontal tilt of venetian blinds also the windowcoverings_tilt_up and windowcoverings_tilt_down capabilities.
Never implement both windowcoverings_state and windowcoverings_set for one driver. This creates duplicate UI components and Flows cards.
