Since there was no app for the WIFI NEO COOLCAM plugs ive put one together for myself based on the TUYAPI by codetheweb. Because i saw some app requests for these plugs i’ve supmitted it to the appstore aswell. I Realize that this is not something for everyone since getting the ID and Keys for the devices is takes some doing and the API is community work to but if you don’t like IFTTT like me this might be a option for you.
I’m planning on adding the 3600 watt plug when i get that from china.
I use zwave an zigbee sensors myself and i don’t realy like wifi devices myself. These plugs are just so cheap that it makes it worth while. But why buy a 12 dollar wifi sensor if a 9 dollar zigbee does the same job…
What you can do is install this app and add them as powerplugs. Big chance that if you trigger the sensor the plug in homey turns on and off. If that is the case i will add an sensor device aswell. I might even order a door sensor from china but that takes a couple of weeks before they are here.
I know this list is a bit messy. Wish they would just put the key in the smartlife app that would be so much easyer.
I’m not to sure how it works exacly on iphone because i used my android phone. But be sure to install the cetificate ( by scanning the QR code . And don’t forget to remove it when your done) and setup the proxy to the ip and port.
Also make sure your firewall on your pc is not blocking the requests from your phone. Mine did that (i use ESET and it blocks almost any port except the ports for mail and web).
I initially used Windows 10 and iPhone/iPad. And it didnt work.
Then I remembered that I had an old Android tablet. After one hour of banging my head into the table because of the slowness of the old tablet I finaly managed to install everything…and…it worked!
so, it looks like it only works if you use an Android device… Good to know for other people
Once installed, I opened up “Node.js command prompt” from the windows start menu and followed Rens instructions.
3.1 Typed “npm i @tuyapi/cli -g” command prompt and waited for it to complete.
3.2 Typed “npm i anyproxy -g” in the command prompt and waited for it to complete.
3.3 Typed “anyproxy-ca” in the command prompt , answered “Y” on the question.
3.4 Typed “tuya-cli list-app” in the command prompt. This generated a QR code and started the proxy server.
Picked up an Android Device(Didn’t work with my iOS devices) with the Smart Life app on it. and scanned the QR code.
4.1 Installed the certificate.
4.2 Updated the WiFi settings on the Android device with the proxy settings provided in the command prompt.
Opened the Smart Life app and the command prompt returned below:
(I only had once device, but I imagine if more devices are in the Smart Life app there will be more rows with ID’s and keys.)
Hey Rens ive managed to add a colour light globe with your app. Little experience in doing this but with the help of harryd as i was on android to managed to add the device. With the device i can change the colour in the Tuya app but when i added the device i selected the plug and inputted the id/key. Its added to only as a plug obviously, this only allows the on/off function (which works) but no colour change or dim function. Is this not possible or did i add it wrong? thanks and great work.
I never did this cmd stuff before. So appoligize for that. I got the whole thing working. My laptop shows the qr code. I installed the certificate on my iphone. But what should i do next? What do you mean by "adjusting my wifi settings on my smartphone?
When i try to visit the ip adres with port number i get this message on my phone and on my laptop

Make sure you have opened up port 8001 in your firewall, Norton Internet Security more or less blocks everything. If you don’t have any 3rd party security software you still have Windows Defender which might block the connection.
