This topic describes how to install and activate Tuya IoT Edge Gateway (TEdge). This is the first step towards the development of the edge gateway.
Perform the following steps to deploy a specific version of TEdge. You can download more versions from Tuya’s Docker image repositories.
Note: In the following shell code, the Username field must be set to your
Create a project directory.
sudo mkdir /var/tedge
Check the current user.
ps aux | grep docker
Grant directory permissions.
sudo chown Username /var/tedge
Create required directories.
sudo -u Username mkdir /var/tedge/res sudo -u Username mkdir /var/tedge/edgex-db-data sudo -u Username mkdir -p /var/tedge/edgex-driver-data/upload/library sudo -u Username mkdir /var/tedge/edgex-driver-data/run_config
Deploy core services of the edge gateway.
docker run --name "tuya-edgex" --restart=always \ -p 58880:58880 \ -v /var/tedge/edgex-db-data:/dbdata \ -v /var/tedge/res:/res \ -v /var/tedge/edgex-driver-data/run_config:/run_config \ -v /var/tedge/edgex-driver-data/upload:/upload \ -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \ -d tuya/tedge-server:latest
Deploy frontend services of the edge gateway.
docker run --name "web-client" --restart=always \ -p 3000:3000 \ -d tuya/tedge-web:latest
You can create a smart product on the Tuya IoT Development Platform. This section describes how to create a gateway based on the low-code development solution. For more information, see Create Products.
You can create a cloud project and configure assets and user information for the project with Tuya’s Cloud Development. When you create a project, set Project Type to Industry Solutions. For more information, see:
Connect to the URL localhost:3000 and log in to the locally deployed edge gateway.
Activate the gateway.
Create a sub-device on the Tuya IoT Development Platform.
On the Standard Category tab, choose Electrical > Socket > Custom Solution.
Add the data points (DPs) Switch 1 and Countdown 1.
Go back to the deployed edge gateway. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Devices > Products > Add.
In the Add Product dialog box, enter the PID, product name, and product description that are used on the Tuya IoT Development Platform.
Search the driver library by name, such as Modbus or MQTT. Fuzzy matching is supported.
Go back to the deployed edge gateway. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Devices > Products. Click DP for the newly added product and click Create.
Add both DPs that are specified on the Tuya IoT Development Platform to the edge gateway. Configure the Modbus information.
Search the newly created socket by name in the Product Type field. Fuzzy matching is supported.
Select Modbus from the Driver Instance drop-down list that is automatically loaded after you select a product type.
Select the protocol type modbus-tcp.
In the IP Address field, enter the Docker IP address of the simulated device. This IP address is generated by the Modbus device simulator that is described in Manage Devices on Tuya Edge Gateway.
Set Port to 1502.
Set UnitID to 1 as the address of the simulated Modbus device. The value of UnitID starts from 1 and must be unique and progressively increased. Each value indicates a sub-device. In this example, the value
1 indicates the first sub-device of the edge gateway.
After the sub-device is added, click Activate Online to activate the sub-device on the Tuya IoT Development Platform.
