Smart Life App Update 3.17.6 (Revealed)

Smart Life App Update 3.17.6 (Revealed)

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. There you can add new Smart Conditions to activate your Tuya smart devices. Now you can make automation happen when the ‘Weather Changes’ in your current location.

These conditions are:

  • Temperature,
  • Humidity
  • Weather Conditions
    • Sunny
    • Cloudy
    • Rainy
    • Snowy
    • Hazy
  • 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 that you can use all types of Tuya devices (GoSund, Teckin, Globe) and have them work seamlessly without the need for a hub, or dependence on other services such as IFTTT.

Check out the images below for your reference.

Are Smart Life and Tuya the same?

Smart Life is a Tuya App. However, there might be confusion of some sort with the Tuya Smart App and Smart Life App.

The difference between the two is that the Tuya Smart App utilizes the logo and elements. In contrast, the Smart Life App does not use the Tuya logo and elements.
