Tuya are discontinuing support in IFTTT for their Smart Life devices. This takes effect on May 26.Is there any chance that SEQUEmatic could support Smart Life natively? This would enable millions of devices in the field to keep functioning with automation.
Apilio are doing this: https://community.apilio.com/t/we-are-working-on-enabling-smart-life-tuya-through-apilio/775
Hi, just wondering if there's an update on this?
Their API docs are here: https://docs.tuya.com/en/iot/open-api/api-list/api/api?id=K989ru6gtvspg
Thanks, and I'm happy to help as much as I can.I've got two smart plugs with integrated energy meters (Kogan KASPEMHA), a door/window open sensor (Mirabella Genio) and an IR transmitter (Blitzwolf BW-RC1). The brands don't matter – they all work in Tuya's Smart Life app and can be accessed in IFTTT.I'm guessing that the smart plugs would be the simplest to start with. The IR transmitter would be the most valuable for me. I use that to control my TV by voice through Google Assistant (via IFTTT).
I've just discovered a workaround to making Tuya devices work in IFTTT. It might be easier to just go with this rather than developing direct functionality.
It's explained in this video at the 4:12 mark. The solution is to use the Brilliant Smart channel in IFTTT instead of Tuya's Smart Life channel. If you connect that channel to your Smart Life account, you can access the same Tuya scenes. I found it trivial to port my existing IFTTT automations across.
