Smart Home Valve Guide

action.devices.types.VALVE - Valves can be opened and closed.

This type indicates that the device gets the Valve 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.

Required traits

These traits and commands are required, if applicable to your device.

Quality requirements

  • Latency: must be less than or equal to 800ms.
  • Reliability: must be more than or equal to 97%.

Example device: Simple valve

This section contains example intent payloads representing a common "Valve" 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.
