The Smart Life App (by Tuya) received an update on May 10, 2020 (3.17.6) in the Google Play store.
I think, in some way, it’s preparation for their migration away from IFTTT. But it could just be the Smart Life App getting better and better for its smart product customers (Tuya, GoSund, Teckin).
We’ll get some clarification later, however, I thought you should know that the App is getting some updates. I have a few Teckin and GoSund Smart Bulbs in my house. Let’s find out what’s new!
Smart Life App Smart Scenes
You can add smart scenes based on changes in the weather. You’ll need to go to the [Smart] section (different from [Home] or [me]). Once you go into your Smart Life App, you’ll see a new ‘plus (+)’ symbol at the top right of the screen.
You can add new Smart Conditions to activate your Tuya smart devices there. When the ‘Weather Changes’ in your current location, you can make automation happen.
These conditions are:
- Weather Conditions
- Sunrise/Sunset (recent addition to Smart Life App 3.17.6)
- Wind Speed
You can start to see that Tuya is getting ready to create more options for your Smart Devices. This means you can use all types of Tuya devices (GoSund, Teckin, Globe) and have them work seamlessly without needing a hub or dependence on other services, such as IFTTT.

Are Smart Life and Tuya the same?
Although Smart Life and Tuya are two separate brands, they are both owned by Tuya. Tuya is a Chinese IoT platform that offers manufacturers white-label smart home products. Tuya permits manufacturers to use the consumer-facing brand Smart Life on their goods.
Stated differently, Tuya serves as the power source for Smart Life gadgets. All that stands between individuals and such gadgets is the user interface or Smart Life.
This indicates that there is compatibility between Tuya and Smart Life devices. Devices from Tuya may be controlled by the Smart Life app and vice versa. There are, nonetheless, a few little variations between the two applications.
For instance, the Tuya app offers capabilities like the ability to build custom device groups that are not included in the Smart Life app. Tuya Smart App utilizes the logo and elements. In contrast, the Smart Life App does not use the Tuya logo and elements.
