Send device commands

Device commands are sent by users via the SmartThings app or by Automations. A device command is first sent to SmartThings Cloud, which then calls the SmartApp Connector. The SmartApp Connector should then relay the command to the third-party device cloud, which actuates the device.

Actuate cloud device

Here is an example of a POST request body to execute a command on a device.


    [
      {
        "component": "main",
        "capability": "colorControl",
        "command": "setHue",
        "arguments": [
          {
            "value": 25,
            "unit": "percent"
          }
        ]
      }
    ]
