SimpleCommands

What is an Item?

Items are one of the main components of SimpleCommands; the other being Connections. Items are the objects with which SimpleCommands communicates and they come in two forms. They are either the physical devices connected to your third-party accounts that you connect to SimpleCommands (E.g. lightbulbs, sprinklers, cars, etc.), or apps/web services that can receive requests (E.g. Lyft, Chase, Spotify). Despite these differences these two types of Items respond to your requests identically, and are listed together in your Item List.

Items are one of the two things required in every request or request you give to SimpleCommands (the other being the command). 

Adding an Item

Items are automatically added to your Items List when you add a Connection.

Using an Item

Using an Item is very easy. Once you establish a Connection and your Items have been added to your Items List, simply select a Connection in the Connections menu and SimpleCommands will lead you through the rest. For more information on using SimpleCommands, see our Introduction to SimpleCommands.

Disabling an Item

To disable an Item in the SimpleCommands app go to the Item menu and select the Item you wish to disable. Then press "Disable Item" at the bottom of the screen. After you confirm that you want to disable the Item SimpleCommands will no longer be able to relay any requests with that Item until you reactivate the Item. To reactivate an Item follow the instructions for disabling an Item, except now the button at the bottom of the screen will read "Reactivate Item".
