Control screen not available for device of display category AIR_CONDITIONER

I want to control AC device with my smart home skill. The AC device has the capabilities - Alexa.PowerController, Alexa.ThermostatController, Alexa.ModeController and Alexa.TemperatureSensor.

I am able to control the device with voice commands, but there is no control screen for the device.
If I add THERMOSTAT as the device category, the control screen is available, with temperature and mode control.

Is something missing in my AIR_CONDITIONER device configuration ?

Hi Sonali,

Thank you for posting. Currently, not every display category has control page on the Alexa app. Could you check if you are setting retrievable to true for all of the controllers? If you still don't get the control page, I would recommend raising a feature request from our uservoice:
