Smart Home Router Guide

action.devices.types.ROUTER - Routers can reboot, update their software, have modes to handle Quality of Service (QoS) controls and parental restrictions, and perform network specific operations (such as enabling the guest network and reporting network specific information such as the current internet throughput rates).

This type indicates that the device gets the Router icon and some related synonyms and aliases.

Device capabilities

Refer to the corresponding trait documentation for implementation details, such as attributes and states that your service should support, and how to build EXECUTE and QUERY responses.

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.

Example device: Simple router

This section contains example intent payloads representing a common "Router" based on the device type and traits above. If you add or remove traits in your implementation, modify your responses accordingly to reflect those changes.
