Smart Home Awning Guide

Device TYPE

action.devices.types.AWNING Awnings are retractable and can opened and closed. They can be installed indoors or outdoors.

This type indicates that the device gets the awning icon and some synonyms/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.
