Homey App for the Tuya cloud.
This app is based on the Home Assistant implementation. Tuya has an undocumented API for Home Assistant that differs from the official API. This API supports login with credentials only.
- Light ( On/Off, some devices brightness, and color)
- Switch( On/Off)
Color settings are not supported for all devices, if it’s not working for your light, it’s not supported by API. Ask Tuya to support this function in API for your device.
This app support the use of scenes. In the mobile Tuya/Smart life app you can make ‘Tap to run’ actions( In the past they where called scenes). Those actions can be called in a flow from this app.
Future supported devices
The above devices are supported by the API, but not yet supported by the app. I don’t own one of the device types, so implemeting is hard to do, it’s also taking more time then expected. Focus is on stabiity of app.
NOT supported devices and functions
- All devices not listed above
- Energie values and devices
- Kitchen devices
- Color for some lights
It’s NOT possible to support those devices because the Tuya API, this app is using, is not supporting those devices. If you want support for those devices, you have to ask tuya to support them first. Only when device is supported by API, it’s possible to add the device to this app.
Because Tuya API is not supporting those devices, it’s not possible to support the devices in this app. Please don’t ask to support for those devices anymore, but ask Tuya to add the to the API first.
- Go to the setup page in mobile app or develloper portal
- Set Username, Password and CountryCode These are the same as with first login of the mobile app
It won’t work with linked Cloud accounts like Google, Facebook or other
- Set Business. This is Smart life or Tuya and corespondents with mobile app you use
The colormap can be leaved empty. this is experimental and is used to correct the colors between Homey and the lights If you want to use it, it has the flowing format:
The values are between 0-360. You have to include 0:0 and 360:360 Example:
This corrected for me the yellow color
- Add other possible device types
- Translation of texts
My device is unsupported or not all functions are supported. What should I do?
If the device is in the future supported list, then it’s possible to support this device. Otherwise there is nothing to do about it at the moment. Not all devices and/or functions are support with the API this app uses.
