Integrate with Xiaomi Push Notifications

Last Updated on : 2023-03-09 08:15:02

This topic describes how to integrate Xiaomi push notifications with your Android app.

Configure the key information

Before you configure the key information to enable Xiaomi push notifications, you must apply for the Mi Push channel. For more information, see Apply for Mi Push in Chinese. Log in to the Tuya IoT Development Platform, click the app that you want to manage on the SDK Development page, and then go to the Push Certificates tab of the app. Enter the key information for Mi Push in the Xiaomi Channel section.

Integrate with Xiaomi Push Notifications

The configurations must meet the following requirements:

  • The package name on the Mi Dev Platform is the same as the SDK app package name on the Tuya IoT Development Platform.
  • The tuya_common, tuya_doorbell, tuya_longbell, and tuya_shortbell notification categories are created in the Xiaomi background.

Integrate with Xiaomi SDK

Tuya Smart Life App SDK uses the regId method provided by Mi Push to implement push notifications. You must integrate and initialize the SDK of Mi Push. For more information, see SDK Integration in Chinese.

Create a channel

Create the push channel to be used by Tuya Smart Life App SDK on Android Oreo. Example:

// The channel ID.
public static final String[] channelIds = {
// channel name
public static final String[] channelNames = {
// The custom sound files for the push channel.
public static final String[] channelSounds = {
  "android.resource://" + context.getPackageName() + "/" + R.raw.tuya_common,
  "android.resource://" + context.getPackageName() + "/" + R.raw.tuya_shortbell,
  "android.resource://" + context.getPackageName() + "/" + R.raw.tuya_longbell,
  "android.resource://" + context.getPackageName() + "/" + R.raw.tuya_doorbell
for (int i = 0; i < TuyaPushChnnels.channelIds.length; i++) {
  createNotificationChannel(channelIds[i], channelNames[i], importance, soundPath);
private static void createNotificationChannel(String channelId, String channelName, int importance, String soundPath) {
    NotificationChannel channel = new NotificationChannel(channelId, channelName, importance);
    channel.setSound(Uri.parse(soundPath), Notification.AUDIO_ATTRIBUTES_DEFAULT);
    channel.setVibrationPattern(new long[]{
            300, 1000, 300, 1000
    NotificationManager notificationManager = (NotificationManager) MicroContext.getApplication().getSystemService(

Register regId to cloud

Get the register method from the class extends PushMessageReceiver.

public static final String PUSH_PROVIDER_MI = "mi";

public void onCommandResult(Context context, MiPushCommandMessage message) {
    L.i(TAG, "onCommandResult: " + message.toString());

    String command = message.getCommand();
    List<String> arguments = message.getCommandArguments();
    String cmdArg1 = ((arguments != null && arguments.size() > 0) ? arguments.get(0) : null);
    if (MiPushClient.COMMAND_REGISTER.equals(command)) {
        if (message.getResultCode() == ErrorCode.SUCCESS) {
            mRegId = cmdArg1;
            Log.i(TAG, "mi push regid: " + mRegId);
            if (!TextUtils.isEmpty(mRegId)) {
                // Registers `regId` to the cloud and sends push notifications by `regId` from the cloud.
                TuyaHomeSdk.getPushInstance().registerDevice(mRegId, PUSH_PROVIDER_MI, new IResultCallback() {
                    public void onError(String s, String s1) {
                        Log.e(TAG, "register device error: " + s + "  " + s1);

                    public void onSuccess() {
                        Log.d(TAG, "register device success");
            } else {
                Log.e(TAG, "mRegId is empty!");

    } else{
        // TODO

The smart device triggers push notifications and the message will be displayed on the notification bar.

Parse custom data

When the user taps the notifications on the notification bar, the custom notifications are returned by onNotificationMessageClicked in extends PushMessageReceiver of Xiaomi SDK. The key of the returned data is mi_link.

public void onNotificationMessageClicked(Context context, MiPushMessage message) {
  Log.i(TAG, "onNotificationMessageClicked: " + message.toString());
  String message = message.getExtra().get("mi_link");
  if (!TextUtils.isEmpty(message)) {
    // TODO
     Log.d(TAG, "mi_link: " + message);
