Homey Bridge with Tuya?

Hi all,

Yesterday I received my homey bridge! To be honest it was not fully clear for me that there way a difference between apps that can be used. Now I do have a few Nedis smart plugs and when I look this up it seems that I can only use these with the Homey Pro (which is not available yet, right?). Is there a way I can still use these plugs with the homey bridge or should I buy new ones which are able to connect directly to the homey bridge?

Also one more question. I have bought a smart sensor from Lidl Home to try this out. It has been set up and it works, but it looks like it has a cool down time or something like that. Can anybody tell whether this is the case, how long this is and whether I can change this?

Thank you in advance!


Homey Bridge (/Cloud) only allows “official brand” apps, so app made by community members will not be available for it.

Very likely the case, a lot of motion sensors (I assume that’s what you have) have a “blind time”. If it’s this device, it doesn’t look like that time is configurable (I don’t know what blind time it has, but it’s usually 60 to 90 seconds).

Thank you so much for the answer! We will be looking for some other plugs in that case! And it is indeed that device. Good to know that it has a cool down time!
