Device Provider Metadata

Device provider metadata is used to provide data on a device that can't be or hasn't yet been standardized across all providers.
When integrating with a device provider, Seam adds any information that doesn't fit nicely into a cross-provider standard field into the provider metadata for a device. Device provider metadata can be found on an object on devices named like so:
device.properties.PROVIDER_metadata
Examples of provider metadata include august_metadata, schlage_metadata and lockly_metadata.
Sometimes provider metadata contains fields where Seam is still coming up with a standard representation, so you can use these fields to "get ahead" of Seam's standardized implementation.

Getting Provider Metadata

To access provider metadata, make any call that returns device properties, here are some examples of how you can get August metadata for a variety of SDKs.
Provider metadata is available in sandboxes, so if you want to see typical examples of provider metadata, you can just create a webview and connect devices in a sandbox workspace to read the properties.
