As an easy setup of a system was one of the main goals of the group, it was decided to specify the lift-devices within an application profile instead of several device profiles. The application profile does not just describe single devices as the device profile does, but describes the functionality of a whole application. In this case, the application comprises up to eight lifts including the appropriate components each.

The devices defined in an application profile are calles virtual devices.
