Smart Life Heating/Cooling Air Conditioner

See original GitHub issue


I have an Air Conditioner/Heater that uses the Tuya Smart Life App. It also shows on the app the current room temperature which I would also like to have a Home tile for if possible so I can create actions like turn on AC when temp gets about 30°C. Link to product is here -

I successfully added the Smart Life Air Conditioner as a Simple Light as instructed, successfully finding the key and id -

{ "platform": "TuyaLan", "devices": [ { "name": "Air Conditioner", "type": "SimpleLight", "manufacturer": "Kogan", "model": "KAPRA14WFGA", "id": "2800100084f3eb579e9a", "key": "123456abcdef" } ] }

It’s successfully showing in Apple Home as ‘Air Conditioner’ ‘No Response’. In the Homebridge logs it shows

Ready to handle Air Conditioner with signature {“1”:false,“2”:21,“3”:29,“4”:“COOL”,“5”:“1”,“19”:“C”,“102”:false,“103”:0,“104”:false,“105”:0,“106”:0,“110”:“0”}

Its got 2 states I guess, on and off. That would be enough to make me happy, I don’t change the mode much as I keep it on cool but would be good to be able to change, they are “cool”, “fan”, “dry” and “heat”. They temperature for cool and heat have to be set, but remain the same it the device it just powered on and off. There is a fan setting with three options, low med and high and there is a swing on and off setting.

Let me know if that is possible please. Great work, best regards, Kurt.

I am glad you find it useful.

Regarding the speed slider, I feel you. I don’t think there is a way to add steps to the slider but I will try to mess with it and see.

Best of luck.

Perfect. I am done with the fan speed; just testing before I publish it. I will post back in a bit.
