This driver allows integration of selected Powered by Tuya devices with Control4 systems based on Tuya Home Assistant API. Check “Brands/Devices” tab to see list of supported devices and brands. Please note that brands list is not complete list but only few selected.
We are currently working on more device types such fan controllers, sensors etc. These will be added to driver in the coming weeks. Please contact us via web form on “https://www.hopsoft.com.au/contact” should you need additional device types integrated.
We will also be working on bringing other Tuya APIs to Control4 to support an even wider range of products.
Tuya Dimmer (tuya_light_dimmer.c4z) – Simple dimmed light supporting to control only brightness.
Tuya CCT Dimmer (tuya_light_cct.c4z) – Dimmed light with secondary light load supporting control of brightness and color temperature.
Tuya HSV Dimmer (tuya_light_hsv.c4z) – Dimmed color changing light with secondary light loads supporting control of brightness, temperature, hue and saturation.
Automatic device discovery
Full support for light v2 proxy including scenes, button connections and ramping
Provides standard relay connections for switch devices, so any generic relay proxy driver can be used. (floor heater, fan, etc.)
Current home assistant API implements few limitations on API call, hence we had to adapt
driver behaviour to meet them while maintaining very good user experience.
Many of these limitations will be overcome as we implement new APIs.
1. Authenticate once in 60s, driver authenticates on driver load/start and when you
enter your credentials into driver’s properties. You will have to wait upto 60s for
driver to re-authenticate if you enter incorrect credentials.
2. Device Discovery once in 600s, device discovery can be called every 10 mins and
will not work if you try to discover devices too often.
3. Device Status Update, API does not support any “device state” query, thus device
states will not be updated if devices are controlled from Tuya Mobile App. Do not
use Tuya Mobile App to control devices to avoid out of sync issues. Driver updates
states based on response to control command, that means state will not update
unless command has been successfully received by Tuya cloud except in following
a. push and hold ramping via keypad button links
b. hue and saturation used in Advanced Lighting agent
