Start and Stop

The trait “Start and Stop” allows you to start and stop devices or a running cycle of it.

Fitting device types

These device types could be combined well with this trait:

  • Dishwashers

  • Dryers

  • Sprinklers

  • Vacuums

  • Washer

Action topics

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

Status topics

Your application should publish the current device state to the status topic everytime the device is started/ stopped. 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, stop means the device is stopped.

  • One of 1, on, start means the device is started.

These values are case-insensitive.
