Product development helps you build smart products in a straightforward process that is integrated with all the necessary operations to achieve cloud connection. This highly-integrated development process allows you to perform function definition, things data model creation, device panel, hardware development, device debugging, product configuration, product testing, and product marketing in one place with ease.

What is a product?

A product is an abstract representation of a collection of physical devices that have the same configurations and properties. Each product created on the Tuya Developer Platform is assigned a unique product ID (PID). After product creation, you can proceed with product development.

The one-stop development services can help you connect your product to the cloud and achieve interconnection with the best cost efficiency.

Product Development

The Smart Life app helps you test the configuration for the device panel that acts as a digital interface enabling users to interact with their smart devices.

Connection methods

  • TuyaOS: Built on top of RTOS, Linux, and non-OS, TuyaOS is a distributed and platform-agnostic IoT operating system.
  • MCU standard protocol: Connect your device to the cloud using the MCU SDK and Tuya standard module. With a few lines of code on the MCU side, you can enable communication between devices and the cloud.
  • Gateway connectivity: Implement interoperability between devices across different brands and protocols, allowing for the creation of innovative applications in the smart home and IoT industries.
  • TuyaLink: Connect third-party smart devices to the Tuya platform with standardized development processes.
  • Edge gateway: Connect smart devices that communicate over popular IoT protocols to the Developer Platform by using specific drivers. The toolset allows you to develop drivers for your private protocols.
