How to get Started making your Home Super ‘Smart’. 

Home Automation is no longer the domain of those with big budgets requiring 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 (smart circuit breakers etc.) 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 relay boards below & the power supply. The 4CH is recommended to due the additional channel options that can be configured. These relay boards are powered via a  5V DC, micro USB (no wiring or risk of shock) and can easily be setup on a office desk or any table. Once connected follow the steps below. Simply Plug -> Configure -> Play 

Step 1:  Tuya offers two identical Mobile Apps. We have no preference and suggest you select any one for your ‘Actual Real Smart Network’  and if required use the other as your ‘Testing & Playing around Network’.

Using your mobile phone scan the QR code or you can download the apps via the Google Play Store or Apple iStore search ‘Tuya’ install the app.
