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.

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"
	      }
	    ]
	  }
	]
