There are soo many Tuya devices out there and with Action store selling a lot of cheap but cool devices, you wish to add them all to your Homey!
Some devices are harder to add because Homey only supports them using the device IP address and a special key. I personally do not prefer using this because a new router, new IP lease or anything similair results in broken devices and flows.
My solution is to use ‘Tap-to-run’ action build inside the Tuya app:
- Open your Tuya app
- Add the devices
- Create a tap-to-run with the action that you wish; turn a group of sirens on and off, pull up your roller blinds to 80% etcetera.
- Install the Tuya Cloud app on Homey
- Login with your Tuya credentials
- In a flow, you can add a ‘Then’ card that triggers Tuya to run your device.
I have been using this for about 18 months now and never had failures. My roller blinds have multiple scenes/tap-to-runs (closed, 80%, 60%, 20% and open) and I created two scenes for my three Tuya wifi based sirens turning them all on or off, which I embedded in my alarm system.
