EasyTuya - Making IOT Control With Python Easy
EasyTuya is a module containing nearly all needed functionality for interacting with your Tuya powered IOT devices through Python. This is done using Tuya's web API, meaning that for this module to work you will need a cloud developer account on Tuya's website. Full instructions for this and general setup can be found below. If you have not already, to use this you must also download the TuyaSmart app on your phone and add your compatible devices.
pip3 install EasyTuya

Usage example: A simple program to control a group of lights through command line input
from EasyTuya import TuyaAPI from EasyTuya.devices import Lights if __name__ == "__main__": api = TuyaAPI("your_client_id", "your_access_secret") l1 = Lights.Light("your_device_id_1", "Light 1") l2 = Lights.Light("your_device_id_2", "Light 2") api.addDevices([l1, l2], "LIGHTS") while(True): toDo = input() if toDo == "on": api.sendCommands("LIGHTS", Lights.onCommand()) elif toDo == "off": api.sendCommands("LIGHTS", Lights.offCommand()) elif toDo == "white": api.sendCommands("LIGHTS", Lights.workModeCommand("white")) elif toDo == "color": api.sendCommands("LIGHTS", Lights.workModeCommand("colour")) elif toDo == "red": api.sendCommands("LIGHTS", Lights.colorCommand(Lights.redHSV)) elif toDo == "blue": api.sendCommands("LIGHTS", Lights.colorCommand(Lights.blueHSV)) elif toDo == "rainbow": api.sendCommands("LIGHTS", Lights.sceneCommand(4)) elif toDo.split() == "bright": api.sendCommands("LIGHTS", Lights.brightnessCommand(int(toDo.split()))) elif toDo == "onoff": api.sendCommands("LIGHTS", api.devices['LIGHTS'].toggleOnOff()) elif toDo == "status": print(api.getStatus("LIGHTS"))
Finding Device IDs
To find your device IDs, go to: Tuya developer site -> Device Management -> Device List Select your correct country from the drop down near the center of the page, then your devices should show up each with their name displayed above their device id, as shown in the following image.
