Television is an expert device and is only shown if the corresponding Expert Option is set.


For devices of the type Television, diverse parameters be set. The device can be switched on and off, change the channel, set the volume, supports muting and can change the input. When a television supports only some of these properties, only the corresponding variables need to be defined.


Name Description
Name Name that is used to address the device via Amazon Alexa
Switch Variable A triggerable variable of type Boolean, that switches the device on or off (optional)
Channel Variable A triggerable variable of type Integer with a profile that has associations and step size 0. The associations need to be numbered consecutively and start with 0 or 1 (optional)
Volume Variable A triggerable variable of type Integer or Float that controls the volume (optional)
Mute Variable A triggerable variable of type Boolean, that controls the muting (optional)
Input Variable A triggerable variable of type String, that controls the used input (optional)
Supported Inputs The supported inputs for the Input Variable are defined in this list. If the Input Variable is set, at least one input needs to be selected

At least one of the optional variables needs to be defined


When optional variables are not set, Alexa recognizes that the device does not support the corresponding properties. If optional variables are defined later on, a new search for devices needs to be executed before the newly unlocked functions can be used.
