Christian Hargrave Christian Hargrave in IoT Thursday, May 10, 2018

Founded by Alibaba Cloud Core Team, the Tuya platform is already implemented in products from 10,000 companies in 200 countries

Tuya Smart is expanding its business with the opening of a U.S. sales and R&D office in Silicon Valley. The company is bringing its one-stop-shop solution to device manufacturers so that any standard ‘dumb’ device can be transformed into a smart one, ready for production "in less than two weeks."

“We are very excited to help U.S. companies build IoT solutions effortlessly using our cloud, app and WiFi module,” said Alex Yang, head of the U.S. office, Tuya Smart. “We have created technology that can produce any type of smart device: from power accessories to lighting, to your household appliances like a heater or air conditioner, to your kitchen appliances. We understand the consumer demand for smart products, and our platform enables any manufacturer to make one effortlessly.”

The ease of development saves companies significant R&D costs and speeds the products to market to meet consumer demand. The Tuya Smart process is "so fast that the controlling app can be built in a few minutes, the module developed and installed in one day, and production is ready in two weeks."

The company has deep engineering roots with its founders being a part of the original Ali Cloud core team, including CEO Jerry Wang who was the first general manager of the Ali Cloud. Also part of the Tuya team (and coming from Ali Cloud) are co-founder Leo Chen, former operating director of Ali Cloud, as well as COO and head of the U.S. office, Alex Yang, who was an executive there. These founders worked on the projects that developed into Alipay, giving them an extensive understanding of user experiences.

Since its founding in 2014, Tuya Smart has developed its AIoT platform and is selling its technology in devices in more than 200 countries. Although the Silicon Valley office is new, Tuya already has a data center in Portland, Ore., joining Tuya’s other data-centers in China and Frankfurt.

“We are very excited to be showing our AI platform running a range of intelligent lighting solutions,” Mr. Wang continued. “With easy-to-adopt and cost-efficient smart business solutions, traditional lighting manufacturers can transform themselves into makers of smart home appliances. We look forward to working with more companies here in the U.S. to help create more smart appliances to make lives easier for consumers.”
