Smart Home Faucet Guide

action.devices.types.FAUCET - Faucets can dispense liquids in various quantities and presets. Faucets may have various modes and each mode has its own related settings. These are specific to the faucet and are interpreted in a generalized form.

This type indicates that the device gets the Faucet 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 faucet

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