Smart Home Gate Guide

Device TYPE

action.devices.types.GATE - Gates can be opened and closed, potentially in more than on direction .

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

These are our recommendations for traits on this type of device, however you are free to mix and match from all available traits to best match your existing product functionality.

Please see each individual trait document for implementation details like required attributes, EXECUTE and QUERY.

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.
