[App][Pro] Tuya Cloud

You could try app v1.0.8

Is your sensor giving correct statusses in Tuya iot project?

F.i. a sensor on my Homey:

Same sensor in my iot project ***:

The time entries should match.
If they do, idk what’s going wrong @ Homey
***) You can navigate there by clicking “Devices”;
Look up your sensor, and click “Debug device” on the right.

Hi Peter, thank you for help. I will try that, thanks again!

Hi Peter, tried that, but 1.08 does not support sensor. So no luck with that…

Ah OK, I use v1.0.8 but I use PIR sensors, they’re functional. It doesn’t support contact sensors so it seems

@friethoe, you have to use version 1.0.11 or higher . Create a diagnostics report and put your forum name in the message so I know from who it is. I can look then if something is going wrong.

There is a new test version 1.1.0. In this version generic triggers and action cards are added. You can receive all messages send for devices with trigger cards. Also there are now action cards to send commands to you device. On this way you can interact with not directly supported devices are commands. Combine it with the virtual devices app and you can control most of your devices. It’s a function for advanced users, there is no validation when sending a command to your device.

To get the device id’s, commands and possible values you can create a flow with the text event received trigger card. This card is returning device id, command and value for each action. Log the returned values to log app to know the commands of your devices, deviceid’s and possible values.

Use the boolean and number cards when values are boolean or number. Otherwise you get an error.

Wow Jurgen, this sounds awesome!! As soon as I get home I gonna play with it. Thanks a lot!!!

Hi Jurgen, I sent you a report with this id:

The app noticed an alarm once, but did not detect the sensor was closed. Hope the report will give you some info. If you need extra info, please let me know. Thanks Jurgen!!!

Hello! Is it possible to add “Nedis - Smart IR” to the Tuya Cloud app in Homey?

I have it added in the standalone Tuya app but I can’t add it to Homey.
Need it to control my Mitsubishi AC because Homey doesn’t have support for Mitsubishi (IR)

Thanks, Kim

Sensibo would make more sense, and is supported.

It’s already there. Use the tap-to-run method.
I use it to control (older) devices (amps, TV sets, Cable TV box) with IR.

@friethoe, I don’t see messages coming from Tuya, but I see the following error:
[log] 2022-07-02 19:36:36 [TuyaCloudApp] TuyaOpenAPI response: {“code”:28841101,“msg”:“No permissions. This API is not subscribed.”,“success”:false,“t”:xxxxxxxxxxxx,“tid”:“zzzzzzzzzzzzz”} path = /v1.0/iot-03/open-hub/access-config
So I think you don’t have added all the api’s of point 6 of the manual: Tuya IoT Platform Configuration Guide Using Smart Home PaaS · tuya/tuya-homebridge Wiki (github.com)

@Jurgen_Heine hi Jurgen, I just sent you an updated log, now with more info, i hope.
Id of the log:

Jurgen, it seems to work now! The sensor reports the right status in the device screen of Homey. But now I noticed that when I switch a lamp on, the icon in the device screen in Homey will light up and off again. The lamp is switched on, but cannot be switched off again via the device screen. I can via the android tuya app.

Update: please ignore the issue with the state in the device screen. That is resolved by deleting the device and added it again. All works awsome and amazing how fast it works!!!

@Jurgen_Heine Awsome Jurgen!!! Thank you for your great app and support!!!

Good to hear it’s working now

Veeeeery nice, Jurgen! Thanks!
Installed test version 1.1.0 and it works here.
I’ve got a wifi-2-IR transmitter, but this doesn’t work (yet).
The created IR devices are present in iot cloud environment.
But they can only be used via tap-to-run scenes.
Not an issue to me, but just for your information.

Hi Jurgen,

I created the same ticket in the git repo as well, but to let the fellow community help out I thought this might be a better spot.

I happened to find out about your app looking for a potential solution to control my IKOHS fan via my homey. However via the app itself I do not get the possiblity to add such a device. Clicking on any of the other (legacy) device available just provides a “there is no device available” error.

I stumbled on this project which allowed me to control it by python currently.

I’m talking about these fans.

Would it be possible to create support for such a thing and or could I help with making it compatible with the app?

In the meantime I did try to create scene’s as well in the hope that those would be integrated without a device being “supported” but unfortunately they are not in the list.

kind regards,

Important Note - In the meantime I was aable to select legacy scene’s to trigger from the homey! So it seems like I can actually assign tasks to the fan.

Still just no support for adding the direct devices, as far as I am aware atleast.

When adding the device doesn’t work, try the new section of the app.

-With the flow below, you’ll “listen” to event messages of your devices;
In this example a message of the ‘text’ type.
This way, when you trigger the device you want to control from the Tuya cellphone app (or just activate a sensor), you’ll catch the device ID, function name and function value events.

Result of this flow:
the values received from a motion sensor (a.k.a. PIR):

Note: Also create flows for numeric and boolean event messages, while you’re not sure which device sends which type of data

How to send a command from a flow, just by receiving that exact message:

If this all doesn’t make sense to you, please try the alternative:
tap-to-run scene method!

Hi Peter,

No worries fellow dutchman here.

I created the following flow similar to yours:

However triggering anything in the smart life app does not create an event or push notification. However I’m not sure whether thats because the events is not received or because the configuration of the app is not working properly.

When trying to add any device I get the following screen:

When trying to setup the app (since the update to expiremental) after pressing save I get the error code: “Error: Code: 2406, msg: skill id invalid”

It means you entered a Data center for another region.
For NL, “Data center” should be set to Central Europe (Tuya Smart Developer Center)
Screenshot from 2022-07-06 18-18-36

That is because the app is not yet configured right, and not connected to the iot cloud
