Device Handler Types Reference

Every device using SmartThings Schema must be associated with a device handler type. This indicates the Capabilities available on the device.

If your needs are not met by one of the pre-made Device Profiles below, you can create a custom Capability for your Device Profile. You can create any number of device profiles in your developer workspace project and use the relevant ID as the value for the deviceHandlerType field for each device in your Discovery Response. Once your integration is ready for submission through the Developer Workspace, create a ticket containing all of the device profiles IDs used for your devices in your integration for our support team to review and publish.


The Health Check and Refresh Capabilities are mandatory for each Device Profile.
