I have some difficulties to understand what the device classes are for. I am creating a new platform for home assistant and one function is supposed to return the device class.
The sensor init has a few definitions, but they seem just words. I can’t seem to find proper definitions anywhere. The homekit integration seems to use and define them, but it seems just own judgement.
I have the feeling that or I’m missing something, or due to the lack of definitions, this feature isn’t as useful as it should be.
The concept itself could be really powerful if they are also linked to for instance units and symbols. However, currently this doesn’t seem the case.
Could anyone elaborate on their use and structure?
