Which Endpoint should I "Show As Device"

I am installing a number of z-wave switches (Zipato and others). With reference to the Device Hierarchy (below) and to the attached image, I am not sure which level of the Endpoint tree to "Show As Device" in the Device Browser.

I seem to be able to control devices from 2 different level. Either Level 2 (Device Endpoint) or Level 3 (Endpoint Cluster). Does it matter which I use? Is it recommended to control the device in the Device Browser using the "Device Endpoint" level vs the "Endpoint Clusters" level? Either one seems to work.


Device Hierarchy:

- Device

-- Device Endpoint

--- Endpoint Cluster

---- Cluster Attribute

----- Attribute State/Position/Value
