About Managing Subscriptions

Once you have created a unit under your organization (e.g. representing your property), you can assign a subscription to it so that all endpoints in units created under the property can get intended features, experiences and policies. Each subscription is a pre-defined skill. To enable the senior living subscription for your property, use the Skill Management API with the senior living skill ID from list below. Note that, subscriptions can only be enabled on level-one (L1) unit i.e. direct child unit of organization. We refer to this level-one unit as property in the rest of the documentation. No further hierarchy can be created under a property until a subscription has been enabled on the property. You can enable any of the available subscriptions for the properties in your organization. Any given property can only have one subscription associated with it at a given time. Any units you create under the property going forward will automatically have the subscription applied to them. If you wish to remove all subscriptions, please work with your Alexa Smart Properties contact for next steps.
