Smart Home Humidifier Guide

action.devices.types.HUMIDIFIER - Humidifiers are devices that add moisture to the air. They can be turned on and off, report and adjust target humidity, and may have various adjustable modes or fan speed settings.

This type indicates that the device gets the Humidifier 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 humidifier

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