Support for Techin, Gosund Type Smartplugs

Forum rules

Questions about hardware that can be controlled by Indigo (but not through the interfaces and plugins listed). If Indigo doesn't support some bit of hardware you're interested in, and you don't find a 3rd Party Plugin for it, add it to this forum. Be sure to include links to as much information as you can find about it.

Note: adding it here does not mean we're going to add it - in fact it's possible one of our 3rd party developers may decide to write a plugin for it. We add hardware/features based on a lot of different factors beyond just having a request for it.

Support for Techin, Gosund Type Smartplugs

Great to have a plugin for the very inexpensive smartplugs by Techin, Gosund and others.

This is probably a better start, since it's Python: https://github.com/clach04/python-tuya

Yeah, that's the link I posted in the other thread. Seems to indicate that direct communication (not through the cloud) is possible once the device is initially set up.

With apparently some really ugly setup required to get the auth certificate.

It's never sunshine and daisies with the newcomers to the smart home market, is it? No doubt designed by a hardware engineer... :P
