On and Off

The trait “On and Off” allows you to, well, turn devices on or off (rather easy, isn’t it?).

Fitting device types

These device types could be combined well with this trait:

  • Air Conditioners

  • Outlets

  • Switches

  • Lights

  • Air Purifiers

  • Dishwashers

  • Dryers

  • Fans

  • Vacuums

  • Washers

Action topics

The gBridge service publishes either 0 (device should be turned off) or 1 (device should be turned on) when you say a voice command.

Status topics

Your application should publish the current device state to the status topic everytime the device is turned on or off. Data from the status topic is cached and used to response to questions about the device state from Google.

You may publish these values on the status topic:

  • One of 0, off, false means the device is off.

  • One of 1, on, true means the device is turned on.

These values are case-insensitive.
