Open authentication is used to allow an LCD driver or service access to your account without giving or storing your user passwords. Many services such as Sonos, Google insist on this level of security to allow users to access.
LCD using our Webapp allows you to grant access to your cloud devices using our Open Authenitcation Flow.
The article below uses our sonos driver flow as an example which is applicable to all drivers which use Open Authentication.

Click the “Manage” button and open the authentication tab
Click the “Authenticate” button to start the linking process
