Smart Home Locator Trait Schema

action.devices.traits.Locator - This trait is used for devices that can be found.

Devices can be found via a local indicator (for example, beeping, ringing, or flashing). Requests to Find my [device] result in the device attempting to indicate its location.

All supported grammar varieties (Find my [device], Where is X?, etc.) will call location, and the voice response will be formed by the execution response from the device (for example, to say whether it is beeping).
