Smart Home Humidifier Guide

Device TYPE

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, toggles, or fan speed settings.

This type indicates that the device gets the humidifier 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.
