Add Support for Smart Life Components


#16

They have an applet in IFTTT for them. Smart Life IFTTT Applet. You just need to make a webhooks applet that links it with smartlife. Do you need help with setting this up? I could go further if so.


#17

They have an API available to use. I just don’t have the technical knowledge to make a custom component to control it with. I couldn’t see this being very hard for someone that does have the knowledge to set something like this up and I would be willing to send someone one of these to test out and make the component with if it would help the community.

I just noticed the VOTE button at the top of the thread. Make sure you click the button to cast a vote saying you want this feature.


#19

The setback for IFTTT is that it takes too long to turn on/off the socket, while the app does it immediately.


#20

I wonder if we can get MQTT working with it via Tuya somehow. I’m a complete noob and only have HA working from watching and re watching many many youtube vids, so I’m just making an observation.


#21

This would be so awesome. Seeing how the app (Smart Life) works well with so many different (low cost) devices, it would indeed be an immense “upgrade” to HA.


#22

Everyone make sure to click the vote button at the top so that we can make this happen!


#23

One more vote for Tuya/Smart life integration from me.
I think the experts can get info after registering here:

Smart Life Bulbs are great value for money , I would love to be able to have them in my Home Assistant setup


#25

Another vote for Smart Life support.

#27

Awesome! I’m gonna give this a try sometime during the week and see if I can get it set up. Still wish we could get this set up as an integrated platform though.


#28

This work with my Smart Bulbs. I can turn them on and off. Is it possible to control brightness and color ?

That would be great!


#29

Has anyone started working on this or anything?


#30

another vote for smart life!!


#31

There this python library to communicate with Tuya devices: https://github.com/clach04/python-tuya

Guess is just a matter of creating a HA plugin.

EDIT

Which already exists: https://github.com/sean6541/tuya-homeassistant


#32

If anyone able to get it setup, please post your finding or steps.

I tried unsuccessfully, to get the Device Key various ways.


#33

The plugin says it only works with switches.


#34

What did you do to forward all traffic to your computer? I’m a bit confused by step 1 in this documentation (http://seandev.org/tuyainst/). I’ve got plenty of port forwards, but I don’t understand what I’m being asked to do. Know of any guides that might help? Thank you so much!


#35

Also just voted! How many do we need?
