This topic describes the updates of the OEM app for Smart Life with v3.18.1. This app version was released on July 30, 2020. You can integrate the updates into your app.

New features

Supported auto binding Apple ID with existing app account

When users log in to your OEM app with an Apple ID, if the email address of the Apple ID is the account of your OEM app, the Apple ID will be automatically bound with this app account. Users do not need to register to the app again. This way, account information can be shared, and user experience can be ensured.

This feature takes effect only after users select Share My Email during login with an Apple ID. If users select Hide My Email, Tuya cannot get the email address. Thus, the Apple ID cannot be automatically bound with the app account.

Added ON/OFF option to electrical and lighting switches

When users select an action for scene linkage that enables two-way control with a wireless switch, the ON/OFF option is available in addition to the ON and OFF options. For legacy versions, smart scenes of wireless switches are not linked to the Smart tab on the app. As a result, when users of legacy versions set a trigger condition of a wireless switch on this tab, the ON/OFF option is unavailable. Thus, the system cannot automatically switch between ON and OFF as expected.

Supported automatic conversion between temperature units on the app

Temperature data points (DPs) can use a consistent unit ℃ or ℉ on the app for devices in smart scenes. Standard temperature DPs use the unit ℃. In fact, users in certain countries or regions need the temperature with ℉. Thanks to the new feature, app users can go to Me > Account Setting and select the desired temperature unit. This way, the temperature will be automatically converted to the specified unit on the app.

Supported waking up Alexa app to bind OEM app skill for Android

If Android users have the Alexa app installed, the Alexa app can be brought to the foreground to bind your OEM app with the Alexa app after a single tap. Users do not need to search for the skill or enter any password during the binding procedure.

If Android users do not have the Alexa app installed, users can be navigated to the Amazon login page from the app, and enter the Amazon account and password to bind the skill, without the Alexa app.

  • Binding procedure for legacy versions: Open the OEM app and select Alexa to bind. On the Amazon H5 login page that appears, enter the Amazon account and password and confirm skill binding.

  • Binding procedure for the new version: Open the OEM app and select Alexa to bind. On the Amazon app that is brought to the foreground, tap Link to finish binding.

    After you purchase this value-added service, Tuya’s staff will help you finish respective service configurations.
