Error handling

For all other errors, manufacturers should use errors in the 4XX range for client errors, and the 5XX range for server errors. The response should always include a JSON body in the following format for all error cases:

    "name": "",
    "state": "error",
    "error": {
        "code": "serverError",
        "message": "cannot get camera info."
  • name can be any of, camera.state, camera.checkForUpdates, camera.commands.status, and camera.commandName.
  • code should be one of the following for 400 status code:unknownCommand, cameraInExclusiveUse, missingParameter, invalidParameterName, or invalidParameterValue.
  • message is defined by manufacturers and is not expected to be a localized message.
