Solution overview

The water valve controller is a product developed for vegetation irrigation in scenes such as home balconies and outdoor courtyards. This product adopts Wi-Fi communication mode and an uninterruptible power supply. This product is used to control the valve switch to deliver water and irrigate vegetation, flowers, and many more. In addition, it collects water consumption data and works with sensors to implement smart irrigation.

Water Valve Controller

Wireless communication types: Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE combo, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Zigbee.
Power supply types: powered by an uninterruptible power supply and batteries.
Control types: one-outlet and multi-outlet water valves.

System architecture

  1. Embedded system: Connect conventional products to Tuya IoT cloud, upload and synchronize product module data to the cloud, and receive functional instructions from the cloud to perform smart control.

    • IoT module: Integrate with control functions of product software and access Tuya IoT cloud functions.
    • IoT gateway: The core device of the Zigbee and Bluetooth network. Zigbee and Bluetooth products are added to the network through gateways and thus communicate with other Zigbee and Bluetooth devices. The gateway is connected to the router to enable communication with the cloud and the mobile app. Zigbee and Bluetooth products can be viewed and remotely controlled on the app.
  2. Control panel: A panel is a remote control dashboard on the mobile app, helping to interact with the smart product.

  3. Tuya IoT cloud: Tuya IoT cloud offers makers and vendors self-service software and hardware development SDKs and a well-established OpenAPI system. The debugging assistant lowers the bar for manufacturers, saves R&D costs, and speeds up the production of smart products. Moreover, Tuya helps manufacturers to promote the smart upgrade of software and hardware, and continuously provides high-quality services to end users.

  4. Smart app: Works as a control hub of smart products.

    • Smart Life app: Applies to those who want mobile apps without Tuya’s icons. You can connect smart products to the app and try out a complete set of the latest features, relieved from custom development.
    • Customized app: Applies to those who require branded mobile apps. After custom development, you can connect smart products to the app and try out a complete set of the latest features.
