Zones

An array of devices and zones

[block:api-header] { "type": "basic", "title": "Introduction" } [/block] An **zone** in droplit.io is an organizational structure inside of environments. Zones may group devices by physical use or location. For example: a zone, “ConferenceRoom” may represent a room and all its devices, and another zone inside of “ConferenceRoom” called “Lighting” may represent all the lights in that room. [block:api-header] { "type": "basic", "title": "Children" } [/block] A zone can contain references to: * [Devices](doc:devices) * Other [Zones](doc:zones) [block:api-header] { "type": "basic", "title": "Alias" } [/block] Zones can be aliased. See [Aliases](doc:aliases). A zone can have custom meta data applied. See [Meta data](doc:metadata).
