In addition to any unofficially supported devices with individual pages in the wiki, there is a section in the community where authors can post device types they have created that they wish to share with other community members.

In some cases there will be multiple device types for the same device because different authors are interested in diffrecent features or control tiles. For example, some devices can be deployed in either "security" or "unsecured" mode, and it may be easier to have two separate device types.

If you have any questions about a custom device type in the community section of the forums, the authors also typically answer questions there.

The quick browse lists organize the device type handlers by device class, such as lighting, HVAC, etc. They will link to the individual author threads in the forum for each device type handler.
