My Alexa-App don't show controls for devices where type is OTHER?

Hello,

I implement a device with Percentage Controler Interface. But i only can control this device with voice. Because there are no controls in the app. It is possible somehow to show the controls?

My Device Discovery Response:

{
    "event": {
        "header": {
            "messageId": "xxx-xxx",
            "name": "Discover.Response",
            "namespace": "Alexa.Discovery",
            "payloadVersion": "3"
        },
        "payload": {
            "endpoints": [
                {
                    "capabilities": [
                        {
                            "interface": "Alexa.PercentageController",
                            "properties": {
                                "proactivelyReported": true,
                                "retrievable": true,
                                "supported": [
                                    {
                                        "name": "percentage"
                                    }
                                ]
                            },
                            "type": "AlexaInterface",
                            "version": "3"
                        }
                    ],
                    "cookie": {},
                    "description": "my description",
                    "displayCategories": [
                        "OTHER"
                    ],
                    "endpointId": "xxx-xxx",
                    "friendlyName": "Shutter",
                    "manufacturerName": "xxx"
                }
            ]
        }
    }
}

Best Regards

Kenny

Hello there,

Please use displayCategories as "LIGHT" for Alexa.PercentageController Interface.

I am also facing same problem the device I am using the control for is not a light that's why I want to use other as the category. Is there any way for this implementation?
