Back in May we launched the first part of our integration with Tuya, but that release only included actions and you could not setup conditions with your Tuya devices…until today!
What’s included in this release
With this new release, you’ll now be able to create:
- Conditions with your Smart Life (Tuya) devices: create rules for your logic that depend on the status of your devices. For example, only allow your logic to run if the power consumption recorded by your smart plug is under a specific threshold.
- Conditions that trigger Logicblocks depending on the status of your device: for example, trigger Logicblocks when you turn on a smart plug, a PIR sensor detects a presence or a light bulb is switched on.
What’s not included in this release
During our tests we’ve learned that Tuya devices can be configured in many, many different ways. We are displaying the statuses that can be used in Conditions that the device manufacturer included during the development of the device. This means that you might be missing some statuses for some devices. If you think there is something wrong with your devices, you can always reach out to us and we’ll have a look at your config.
We have created a thread to curate a list of well-configured devices, so you’ll know beforehand how these devices are operating. You can also contribute to expanding the list letting us know about your current devices.
Tell us what you’d like to see next to control your home automations just how you want it.
We want to introduce a new concept of devices to Apilio, that will allow you to check the status of different devices and variables in one place. Maybe you’d like us to focus on expanding the Tuya actions first, or on a different integration? We are all and
One last thing…
The whole Apilio team would like to thank our families and partners for enduring weeks of chaotic Tuya testing at our homes, during which a seemingly unending stream of new test Tuya devices were added to our dwellings, where all existing Logicblocks were disabled or modified beyond recognition, and some lights and switches were turning on and off at unexpected times of the day, all in the name of Quality Assessment Thanks a bunch.
