This topic describes how to create a smart product on the Tuya IoT Platform.

Procedure

Step 1: Select a category

  1. Log in to the Tuya IoT Platform.

  2. On the homepage, click Create.
    Create Products

  3. You can select categories with the following two methods.

    • Method 1: Select your desired category. For example, click Small Home Appliances and select Heater.
      Create Products
    • Method 2: If you are not sure which category a product belongs to, you can click the search icon in the top right corner on the Create Product page, and enter a category name in the search box.
      Create Products
  4. Select the development solution of the product, such as a Custom Solution. For more information, see Step 2: Select development mode.

    Create Products
  5. Complete your product information. For more information, see Step 3: Complete basic information about the product.

Step 2: Select development mode

At present, Tuya provides Zero-Coding Development and Custom Solution. You can select the solution as you want.

  • Zero-Coding Development: You only need to create a product and purchase related network modules to complete the development of smart products. This solution only applies to some categories of products, such as sockets and lights.

    Create Products

  • Custom Solution: You need to implement product application logic by yourself, and use MCU SDK or module SDK to connect and manage the device and the cloud. This is a more flexible development method.

    Create Products

    Note: If you use the Custom Solution to develop gateway devices, you must select the uplink and downlink protocols.

    • The uplink protocol serves the communication between the gateway device and the cloud. That is the Protocol Type. Wi-Fi is selected by default.
    • The downlink protocol serves the communication between the gateway device and its subordinate device. That is the Agreement Type.

Step 3: Complete basic information about the product

Enter the following information.

  • Product name (required): You can customize a product name. For example, XXX (brand) + XXX (product) + XXX (module model).

  • Product model (optional): You can enter a product model to distinguish different products. For example, XXX (AE1123).

  • Protocol type: Select the protocol type according to your product. If a category does not provide your required protocol, you can submit an online technical ticket to contact us.

  • Power consumption type: Standard Power Consumption is selected by default.

    Note: Make sure that you have selected the desired protocol, which determines the network module we deliver to you.
