Tuya's Technical Innovations
The technical advancements Tuya announced include:
- One-click Connectivity Function, which enables faster connections across products, while supporting all major protocols like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, GPRS and 5G. With Flexible Fast Control (FFC), users get password-free connections with localized networking for a smoother experience while connecting to new devices at their home.
- IoT Butler/Housekeeper makes it possible to control over 100 devices at any one time, 10 times more than other players in the market. A series of interactions among all devices can be triggered according to the preferences set by the user.
- Consumer AI is now a reality thanks to NLP (Natural Language Processing) technology that means your voice assistant can do a series of skills without the need for multiple commands. It uses visual inter-process communication (IPC) with the ability to have two-way communication and interaction, with which users can have conversations while seeing each other on a screen.
Tuya's Platform Updates
Thanks to Tuya's one-stop platform, it takes only 5 minutes to turn a traditional device into a connected device on its IoT OS, which works closely with AWS, Azure and Tencent Cloud. Also, Tuya's data protection levels meet international standards, including European and American standards.
Thanks to Tuya's Comprehensive Data Analysis System the programming process for coders uses APS (advanced planning and scheduling) to synchronize working schedules with colleagues and for performing pressure testing on the cloud without delay. With its Customized Mobile App Platform, which provides all kinds of modules, Tuya has made app development as easy as playing with LEGOs.
