At first I couldn't find the correct syntax to launch it, until I noticed some examples when launhing it with a wrong syntax. I'll copy them here for reference:

smartctl -a a1ide.device:0
(Prints all SMART information)
smartctl -s on -o on -S on a1ide.device:0
(Enables SMART on first disk)

smartctl -A -l selftest -q errorsonly a1ide.device:0
(Prints Self-Test & Attribute errors)
