Use Cases

Last Updated on : 2022-10-17 07:53:52download

With TuyaLink, you can connect a multitude of proprietary network modules and smart devices to the Tuya IoT Development Platform and implement real-time monitoring, message forwarding, and application development.

This topic describes the typical use cases for the TuyaLink solution.

Use Cases

Use case 1: Proprietary network module

Connect your proprietary network modules to the Tuya IoT Development Platform and leverage Tuya’s app and PaaS services.

An air quality detector with a proprietary network module is integrated with the Tuya MQTT standard protocol. It can report data such as air quality index, temperature and humidity, CO2, and formaldehyde to the cloud. Users can view the real-time data by using the control panel in the app built with App SDK and Mini App.

Use Cases

Use case 2: Smart device

Connect smart devices to the Tuya IoT Development Platform and leverage Tuya’s app and PaaS services.

A multifunctional access control system is connected to the Tuya IoT Development Platform by using the IoT Core SDK. It can report device status to and receive commands from the cloud. When users are identified via RFID, QR code, or biometrics, the device reports the access information to the cloud. The cloud gets the authentication result from the SaaS and forwards the unlocking command to the device. The device unlocks the door accordingly. You can manage device logs and access records with the SaaS.

Use Cases

Use case 3: Gateway device

Connect gateway devices and sub-devices to the Tuya IoT Development Platform and leverage Tuya’s app and PaaS services.

An industrial gateway is integrated with the Tuya IoT Development Platform by using the IoT Core SDK. Using data types such as float, double, and long, the gateway can act as a proxy for sub-devices of different types and report data received from them to the cloud. With the cloud APIs, industrial SaaS can receive messages from the device, which serves as the data source for applications such as dashboards and fault monitoring.

Use Cases

Use case 4: Third-party cloud connected devices

Connect third-party cloud connected devices to the Tuya IoT Development Platform and leverage Tuya’s app and PaaS services.

With Cloud-to-Cloud Integration and Message Subscription, a device that has been connected to a third-party cloud platform can report data to and receive data from the Tuya IoT Development Platform through an API proxy and bridge. Thus, users can control devices using Tuya-based apps or build SaaS applications by cloud API integration.
