Smart Home Dryer Guide

action.devices.types.DRYER - Dryers have start and stop functionality independent from being on or off. Some can be paused and resumed while drying. Dryers also have various modes and each mode has its own related settings. These are specific to the dryer and are interpreted in a generalized form.

This type indicates that the device gets the Dryer 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.

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.

Quality requirements

  • Latency: must be less than or equal to 3000ms.
  • Reliability: must be more than or equal to 97%.

Example device: Simple dryer

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