Tuya smart ir

i would love to see yet another TUYA component :
its have it’s one IR database, not like broadlink


That would be great! There are several Tuya enabled devices available. I have an UFO-R1 but there are a bunch of other brands/models like YTF Wifi Smart IR and so on. All with an ESP processor (TYWE3S) on it.
There is already a python library available at https://github.com/clach04/python-tuya

Pleeeeeeease! this would be great!

Yes that would be a +1 from me

From Tuya app I have full control to my old A/C unit and finally control for my Samsung smart TV.

Hi, do you mind sharing what IR remote you use that works with HA? Thanks

I found a workaround how to use it.
You can create “Tap-to-run” automation in SmartLife Applicaiton related to your IR devices. And this “Tap-to-run” scenes will be available in HomeAssistant

Thank you, mate! it works!

Thanks for the idea. It works great. I used the exposed tuya “tap-to-run” scenes in HA scrips and made “buttons” from scenes. Here is the result.

Yes that would be a +1 from me as well

I received my UFO-R1 today. Used tuya-convert to flash tasmota on it. Works great.

Good Morning all,
also I own a UFO-R1 and currently not known if integrated in HA, being a novice of this world, is it possible to know what the procedure for the tasmota flash is and what firmware should I go to load? Where can I download the necessary items? Thank you in advance

A few steps required to put tasmota on it :

Use tuya-convert for the initial flash :


After flashing, a tasmota will be installed, which does not work :slight_smile:

Go to firmware upgrade :


upload http://thehackbox.org/tasmota/release/tasmota-ir.bin

Finally, under configuration, configure module, choose

meanwhile, thank you very much for your reply, how do I go into firmware upgrade? forgive me but it is the first time that I do this procedure. Among other things, I am disconnecting home assistant to load the tuya convert on an SD with raspbian and make the change

You just click on the button with the text ‘firmware upgrade’

I imagined but I miss the passage of how I get to the screen where the firmware update is located … do I have to connect to the same via smartphone? do I have to do something once the tasmota has been flashed?

I can’t Reply anymore so i write here:
Thank you …
Now i upload the bin file that u attached … but at the end i have this error:

Generic Module


Upload Failed

Upload buffer miscompare

But i use a rapsbian image with tuya convert installed yet and version is:

Generic Module


Program Version
Build Date & Time 2019-11-06T23:07:19

Is it correct ?

Ok, probably never flashed tasmota before.

After tuya-convert is finished, your device should restart.

It should restart in access point mode with a sonoff-xxxx SSID. (or tasmota-xxxx SSID), depends on the tasmota version

From you computer or from your smartphone, connect to this Wifi network. You’ll be prompted the wifi configuration page.

Configure your Home wifi network SSID, password and Hostname (make sure its unique on your LAN).

Be very careful to enter the correct credentials (SSID is case-sensitive !, password too)

Once everything is setup, just Save.

Now look in your router (or use fing on your phone) to find the IP-address of your new device. Use a web-browser to go to that address.

Now you should see the page of the first screenshot above.

Hello, I followed what was successfully suggested to the letter, now my situation is this:

it’s right?

after doing the configuration as you suggested I find myself in this situation:


is there anything i need to set up to make it seen by Home Assistant?

How can I then integrate it into the home assistant? Do I have to use MQTT? if yes … what is the procedure to follow?

Thanks Infinite
