Last Updated on : 2022-09-15 02:53:21

This topic describes the Smart Home solution and Custom Development solution to help you choose the one that best suits your needs.

Solution comparison

The following figure shows the differences between the two solutions in terms of device integration and management and application development.

  • If you have already built a Tuya-based smart home app (such as an OEM app or App SDK based app) that end users use to pair, control, and manage their smart devices, the Smart Home solution caters to your needs.

  • In other cases, you can choose the flexible Custom Development solution.

Smart Home

Overview

Smart Home solution offers capabilities including user management, device management, device control, and data analytics. You can leverage these capabilities to develop business systems or IoT value-added services offered to end users.

Example

Hardware manufacturers make smart devices that can be controlled with an OEM app. The app owner can link an OEM app with a Smart Home project and use the OpenAPI service to get device and user data for building a big data management platform and multi-platform apps.

Custom Development

Overview

Custom Development solution helps you build industry-specific IoT applications in various domains, such as smart campus, apartment, and commercial lighting. The Powered by Tuya ecosystem coupled with the industry-common asset system allows you to build an asset and user system specific to your business needs. You can use a dedicated app for device pairing to connect IoT device fleets to the Tuya IoT Cloud and harness the OpenAPI service to develop industry solutions.

Features

  • The business owns the connected devices and can authorize end users to use the specified device.
  • You can manage a multitude of devices in a hierarchical tree structure of up to 5 layers. This tree structure can be widely applied to asset management across different industries, while for the Smart Home solution, one home is limited to managing up to 200 devices.
  • The OpenAPI service and Message Service enable you to integrate with your proprietary system in order to seamlessly manage and control devices.

Example

Smart building solution providers purchase Powered by Tuya smart devices and manage devices as assets. They can build multi-platform apps with asset management, mobile apps for commissioning, web apps for device control, and energy consumption dashboards included.
