How to get Started making your Home Super ‘Smart’.
Home Automation is no longer the domain of those with big budget and highly skilled individuals to programme, install and configure your system.
With the advent of the Smart Home platform from Tuya Industries, making your home ‘Smart’ is now truly DIY. (Note that where applicable work is to be carried out by a qualified electrician in possession of the applicable ‘wire-men’s license’).
Firstly, we suggest you purchase at least one of the products to the right [click on the product image]. The double adaptor while more costly requires absolutely no wiring. Simply plug> configure> play.
Step 1: using your mobile phone scan the QR code to the right or via the Google Play or Apple iStore search for the app called ‘smartlife’ & install the app. The app has the ‘Blue Smart House’ icon.
Step 2: Open the App & Create an account. Enter your phone number or email address and then request a verification code and create your password.
Step 3: Add device Tap “+” on the top right corner. A list of potential products appears.
Step 4: Select the device type you want to add from the available list
Step 5: Activate the device by plugging it in or connecting the battery.
Step 6: All Tuya products are ‘default pairing mode’ when first switched ON – LED flashes quickly. If not, press reset button or switch the device on & off 3 times until it flashes (e.g. light bulbs or strips). Note for light switches select the 1-3gang device to pair.
Step 7: Confirm your phone is connected to your Wi-Fi network to which the device will be added, enter your Wi-Fi password and confirm. Note 2.4Ghz wifi networks ONLY.
Step 8: The device will be added to your Smart devices list
Step 9: After the product is found and added, rename it so you can easily recognize it and use that name for voice commands. Example kitchen lights, pool pump, kettle etc.
Step 10: schedule runs start and end time and days of the week etc.
Step 11: play around and have fun to fully understand the huge potential of THE Tuya Smartlife platform. Add IFTTT.
