At the IFA 2019, the global AI+IoT leader Tuya (https://en.tuya.com/) announced a proprietary new Smart Home Automation Hub with “Pegasus” technology that enables multiple smart home devices from different devices to connect with one-click.
The Tuya Smart IoT Platform comprises embedded network modules to make lighting and switches, sensors and plugs, or cameras and appliances seamlessly connect to the IoT. I didnt know that soo many of our devices are powered by this company. I really hate it at home when every smarthome device needs a specific hub and app which really cloaks my smartphone and blocks my power sockets. But if you buy the new tuya hub, you can actually use just one hub to controll them and that really makes life easier.Having a Smart Home Automation Hub equipped with Pegasus technology means having a Gigabit router with Wifi and a Zigbee gateway at the same time.
That means you can connect and controll all your zigbee compatible devices with it and on top you dont need an extra router. The variety of IoT devices and connection protocols have increased with the rising popularity of smart home technology, creating an overwhelming amount of smart home device applications. To combat this issue, Tuya creates a more simplified AI+IoT platform connection, which has already been used to create more than 30,000 different smart objects and it grows every day. Thats really impressive.
At the Tuya booth at IFA 2019, they also showed alot of compatible tuya products ranging from smart light bulbs over to switches, air conditioners, security cameras, vacuum cleaner robots and much more. I really like that the Tuya Eco System grows that fast and I’m looking into a bright future where we just need one app to simplify our smarthome experience. The Tuya Smart App is available in the playstore for your devices and here is an overview over some of the features:
With the Tuya Smart app you can:
• Remotely control home appliances from anywhere
• Add and control multiple devices at once with one App
• Voice control via Amazon Echo and Google Home
• Interworking of multiple smart devices. Devices automatically start/stop working based on temperature, location and time.
• Easily share devices among family members
• Receive real-time alerts to ensure safety
• Easily and quickly connect Tuya Smart App to devices
“Pegasus,” solves the common problem of not having enough power sockets in a given room by combining all functions that only require one cable instead of several.
“Having a Smart Home Automation Hub equipped with Pegasus technology means having a Gigabit router and a Zigbee gateway at the same time,” said Alex Yang, Tuya’s Co-Founder and COO. “You can free up your hands to enjoy one-click networking and benefit from a cost-efficient method of connection.”
To power Tuya’s “Pegasus'” networking feature, users can connect to Wi-Fi and Zigbee devices in just 3 steps:
- Add a Smart Home Automation Hub device to the Tuya Smart App.
- Click “one button networking” on the smart home hub to enter “Pegasus Mode.”
- Turn on the smart device’s automatic networking mode for quick connection.
