Device Class Index
#1
This page just provides a sorted index of device classes, to make it easier to find the particular thread of interest.

Finalized Classes
These are the classes that are currently well defined and ready to use in device drivers:
[INDENT]AIO
Audio
AVProcessor
ClrLighting
ContactClosure
DeviceInfo
DIO
Lighting
Lock
MediaRenderer
MediaRepository
MediaTransport
MotionSensor
NowPlaying
Power
Projector
Relay
ResourceMonitor
SceneCtrl
Security
Simulator
Stereo
Switcher
Thermostat
Tuner
TV
Weather
[/INDENT]

Not Quite Finalized Classes
These are defined, but haven't really been put to the test yet, so comments are welcome. It would be nice to define them as well as possible before they get into use.

Undefined/Maybe Unneeded Classes
These are still being discussed or haven't even been defined yet. Please comment on these if you have any expertise in these particular device types. Some of these may ultimately be deemed unnecessary, since any device of that type will just be a combination of other device classes. What we are interested in is that functionality that will be very widely supportable within the devices that support that type of feature. It's useless to define a device class that only 5% of devices could actually support meaningfully. So it's not about maximum functionality, but maximum consistency, so that user logic and interfaces can depend on the functionality defined.
[INDENT]Amplifier
AutoPanel
HVAC
Irrigation
MediaPlayer
MediaSchedule
MZAudio
PBX
PoolCtrl
PVR
Router
SetTopBox
Shades
WeatherStation

I moved the Resource Monitor class into the well defined list. It's in play now in the Brultech GEM driver and sees to be appropriate for those types of devices.
