Smart Home Radiator Guide

Device TYPE

action.devices.types.RADIATOR Interactions with radiators may include turning them on and off, and adjusting various modes and toggles.

This type indicates that the device gets the radiator icon and some synonyms/aliases.

These traits are recommended, if applicable to your device. However, you are free to mix and match from all available traits to best match your existing product functionality.

Sample SYNC Request and Response

This is an example using the device type and traits above. It is intended to give an idea of how to build a SYNC response. If you add or remove traits, this will need to be modified to reflect those changes.
