Naming and compatibility

This page is only available in English.

1 Naming

1.1 Products

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.
