Como criar uma automação na aplicação Smartlife ou Tuya para a tua casa inteligente

Home automation helps you to have an even smarter home, completely adapted to your routines and needs.

Smartify products use the SmartLife or Tuya application to create scenarios and rules that can be included in these automations. Most smart devices can be automated, and some have just that purpose. Read on to learn what makes automation and how to do it. At the end we also give you several examples of automations and smart devices to make your home more routine.

What is an automation?

An automation is a smart home feature that allows you to control and manage devices in an automated way, without the need for manual intervention. With automation, you can create custom routines, scenarios and rules for your devices, making your home more convenient, efficient and comfortable.

Automation is based on "if" and "then" - if a certain condition is met then a specific action will be triggered. For example, you can set up an automation to automatically turn on the lights when it detects movement in a certain area of ​​the house. Or, program the air conditioning system to turn on half an hour before you arrive home, ensuring a pleasant atmosphere when you enter.

There are different types of automations you can create, from simple isolated actions to complex routines involving multiple devices. You can automate tasks such as turning appliances on and off, adjusting lighting according to the time of day, regulating room temperature, opening and closing curtains, among many other possibilities.

Where can I do the automations?

Automations can be configured through specific applications, such as Smartlife or Tuya , which allow you to integrate and control different smart devices in a single place. In addition, it is possible to combine automations with virtual assistants , such as Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa , to control the house through voice commands.

Automation provides a number of benefits , including convenience, energy savings and increased security. By automating everyday tasks, you can save time and effort, creating a more efficient and personalized home to your needs.

How is automation done?

In this comprehensive guide, we'll explore the process of creating automations and also suggest some products that can be integrated to make your home even smarter.

Identify the scenario or routine you would like to automate.
