Naming and compatibility
This page is only available in English.
Products are preferredly named from left to right by: manufacturer code name large medium small (id)
- manufacturer: Axis, Eltako, Fibaro
- code: M3007-P, FAM14, FGMS-001 (mostly alphanumerical)
- large medium small: shoe sports indoors, mask gas protective
instead of: indoor sports shoe, protective gas mask
This approach groups similar articles together when listed by title.
- id: Manufacturer numerical ID, if existent.
- EAN (European Article Number) or UPC (Universal Product Code) are listed on the product detail page, if available.
- Usually, no extra designation like "camera" is given if it is clear from manufacturer name and code.
Products can however be assigned to multiple categories across hierarchy branches,
so a hybrid sensor/actor wall plug will show up both in a sensor and an actor category.
