Support new Tuya Firmware

See original GitHub issue

Hi guys,

Not sure if this issue was raised already. But after a recent upgrade of Tuya devices to the latest firmware (it’s different ver per manufacturer) the Homebridge plugin stopped working correctly. It does show devices online, but all commands sent are ignored.

It seems the problem was addressed in tuyapi ( But I can’t see if that package is a dependency of this module. Do you work with that api? If so would you be able to use an updated version?

Thanks for all help with the plugin. It’s a great functionality, too bad does not work at the moment…

So it looks like this project (github) states that it’s deprecated, and we should use homebridge-tuya-lan instead.

However, the homebridge-tuya project was updated a few days ago, and it does support the new firmware version. I’ve just tested it with 2nice/GO Smart/Smart Life Smart-Wifi-Plugs and it works!

I switched to that project for now, until this one gets updated!

Please give the latest rc release a shot by doing npm i -g homebridge-tuya-lan@rc. It includes logic to understand this newer API.

A known issue is that the current state is not reported by some devices; they however work fine as soon as you interact with them. I have reached out to Tuya for a solution.

The Setup Instructions have changed in case you need to obtain a fresh id and key.
