If you find unexpected message usage, we recommend you optimize and update the firmware to reduce unnecessary message reporting. If the message usage is as expected, the statistics allow you to keep an eye on message usage.

Switch between data centers

To meet compliance requirements of different countries or regions, Tuya IoT Development Platform has six data centers deployed worldwide, namely China Data Center, Western America Data Center, Central Europe Data Center, India Data Center, Eastern America Data Center, and Western Europe Data Center. One device can be paired and activated in different data centers. You can switch between data centers to view device details stored in a specific data center.
