The Smart Device Template (SDT) is a template method which is used to model the capabilities, actions and events of connected devices. The intent of the SDT is to be able to model any type of connected device using a well accepted and standardised format. The main application of SDT is to enable a uniformly structured Application Programmer's Interface (API) for applications that need to interact with connected devices. Usually, these applications would communicate to devices using an abstraction or service layer, or cloud platform as an intermediary logic. This layer usually "hides" the technology-specific, native language format of devices of different technology type from the applications.
