What capability interface to implement a stove with multiple burners?

Hello,


I'm new in the smart home skill development and I'm trying to implement a smart home skill for a stove with more than one burner so that you can say Alexa, turn on the burner 1 of the stove. Or Alexa turn off the burner 2 of the stove.


I was wondering if it is posible to implement this with only one device or if I need to create two devices (one for each burner).


If it is possible to implement it with one device, what interfaces should I implement. Maybe ModeController with a property BurnerNumber?


Thanks and regards

Hello and thanks for posting.

You can either model two different devices, or just one device with two mode controllers.

If the interaction will only be about turning them on/off, please consider checking the ToggleController as well:
