I am sharing my experience with Globe products (color bulbs and smart plugs) and the LocalTuya integration.
By default Globe will ask you to use their own app. I realized that I could just use Tuya instead. And coupled with Localtuya, I wouId not need any cloud service. I followed the guide from the localTuya integrations and after a few tries, I am now able to completely control my color bulbs and smart plugs.
I was used to buy zigbee devices at $20 or $50… the plugs were 4 for CDN$20 and the bulbs were 4 for CDN$30… very cheap.
- 4 color bulbs model 35804 (from Costco)
- 8 smart plugs model 50329 (from Costco) and seen as 50207 in Tuya
Configuration in localtuya.yaml:
## Smart plugs - host: 192.168.1.240 device_id: bedded_dummy local_key: q1w2e3r4_dummy friendly_name: Tuya_Prise_1 protocol_version: "3.3" entities: - platform: switch friendly_name: tuya_prise1_on_off id: 1 ## Smart bulbs - host: 192.168.1.168 device_id: aaabbbccc_dummy local_key: ddddeeefff_dummy friendly_name: Tuya_Ampoule_1 protocol_version: "3.3" entities: - platform: light friendly_name: tuya_ampoule1_on_off id: 20 color_mode: 21 # Optional, usually 2 or 21, default: "none" brightness: 22 # Optional, usually 3 or 22, default: "none" color_temp: 23 # Optional, usually 4 or 23, default: "none" color_temp_min_kelvin: 2000 color_temp_max_kelvin: 5000 color: 24
The result for the plug:
