What is an Item Alias?

Item Aliases, or Aliases are the "your terms" portion of SimpleCommands' slogan: "communicate on your terms". Aliases are your customized name for each Item. Each Item can have a maximum of one Alias set by you (though they are not required). 

After establishing a Connection SimpleCommands adds Items from that Connection to you Item List. Sometimes these Items have already been named by you via one of your third-party accounts (E.g. SmartThings lightbulbs), and sometimes we here at SimpleCommands have preset names for the Items (E.g. Lyft and Spotify). Want to address an Item differently than SimpleCommands currently allows you? Just create an Alias with whatever name you want so that your communication with SimpleCommands really is on your terms.
