TUYA Wifi Light Integration?

cant we do a signed petition to samsung so they integrate the api on samsung smartthings in home assistant it is 4 lines of code cmon people WORK

Oh OK. How do I figure out which of the Chinese brands would integrate with ST and which won’t?

in home assistant every single one of the tuya branded devices work

Sorry what is home assistant?

it is a open source project
https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/tuya/

As of late 2019 it is now the responsibility of the device manufacturer to create and maintain the integration. This is why you now see so many new brands listed in the new SmartThings app.

(Note that, as with everything else, the first rule of home automation applies: “the model number matters.“ just because the brand is listed does not mean that all of its different models will work with the integration. That’s true even of the big brands like ring and Arlo. You have to drill down or ask the manufacturer to find out which are included.)

If the brand/model you want isn’t listed there, then you need to search this forum to see if anybody has designed a custom integration for it.

If it’s a Wi-Fi device, you may be able to get a partial integration either with Ifttt or with Amazon Alexa routines. See the FAQ:

Thanks. I think your recommendation of the Ikea GU10s is best in terms of price and quality for white light. Struggling to find an RGB GU10 for a reasonable price which integrates with Smartthings, hence my question about Chinese ones because loads come up on ebay but I’m not convinced they will integrate and also how well they actually perform.

For UK folks, I wonder what the most popular choice is?

i have the ikea gu10 https://www.ikea.com/pt/pt/p/tradfri-lampada-led-gu10-400-lumens-ilum-regulavel-s-fios-espectro-branco-90408603/
the basic ones are weak so I bought the 15 euros ones they work flawlessly with smartthings

I have 90 lights 10 of them are IKEA 5 are xiaomi the rest are tuya so I have to have 5 apps to control lights or use google bought 6 Google homes the smartthings control the automatic lights with Xiaomi aqara sensors they work quite well

Sorry so the Xiaomi lights you have are integrated into Smartthings?

yes yealight ones xiaomi Philips doesn’t work

Doesn’t look like Yeelight have GU10 unless I’m missing it.

no it does not IKEA has it send an link earlier I have tuya eywelink tp link xiaomi home aqara etc…

Yea I was more interested in a GU10 RGB - that’s the one I haven’t been able to find. Unless I cough up for a hue or lifx bulb but even the lifx GU10s seem to be very low supply and very costly.

if you want integration with smartthings use the IKEA rgb gu10 tradfri it simple easy and rock solid

There is no RGB GU10 bulb in Ikea’s lineup from what I can see! I’m in the UK…

nope there is not that is why I bought the tuya ones got each one for 5 euros with shipping…

And the tuya ones are still working with Smartthings?

never did…
for me anyways i got no answer for you I very installed home assistant integrated everything with Google and put a tablet the tuya app and did some automation it is awfull the smartthings integration but for me it works I got 18 apps to manage… also I have nest and eywelink and sonoff and sonos so… it is quite the nightmare

LIFX makes a WiFi one, but it’s quite expensive. It works well with smartthings, though.

INNR makes a zigbee One that will connect directly to a smartthings hub and is a much more reasonable price.

Philips Hue has one, but you should use it with the Hue bridge as these don’t work well as zigbee repeaters with smart things and can mess up your network if you don’t use the bridge.

But all of this is getting pretty off-topic for this particular thread. So why don’t you start a new thread in devices and ask for recommendations on GU 10 RGB bulbs for the UK. :sunglasses:

Yes sorry about that - it has started to get off topic so I’ll start a new thread :slight_smile: thanks!
