Simon Electric teams with Tuya for AI and IoT
Spanish electrical and lighting specialist Simon Electric has signed a deal with emerging cloud provider Tuya Smart for the Internet of the Things driven by artificial intelligence (AI).

Tuya makes clud-enabled plugins to enable manufacturers to transform ordinary products into smart devices. The technology is used in over 30,000 products, powering 100 million smart devices around the world in more than 150 countries.

The deal with Simon China, a Chinese subsidiary of Simon Electric, brings IoT capability to LED luminaires and electrical equipment such as thermostats under a range of brands including Fluvia. Tuya also announced deals with TCP, a large-scale multinational lighting company based in the US and silicon provider Silicon Labs.

Tuya has also launched its own AI Video Doorbell and the AI Pad at the Consumer electronics Show in Las Vegas this week. The AI Pad integrates multiple subsystems, such as lighting, power, smart cameras and sensors, in a central platfrom for smart buildings. After the user enters the face data in advance through the smart camera and obtains whitelist permission, all the smart devices under the control of the central system will be available to the user.

For example, if employees are in their company office building, they can open doors and take the elevator, at pre-programmed times if necessary, without having to carry different identity cards and key cards. AI Pad can also be used to control the building’s entire smart system, to adjust the office’s lighting, temperature and humidity settings, for example.

“In the future, with the continuous integration of AI+IoT technology in the security field, this technology will provide users with a more secure smart environment,” said Alex Yang, COO of Tuya Smart. “At the same time, the construction of smart homes will also lay a solid foundation for the construction of smart communities and smart cities, and that is where we see Tuya’s future.”

“Consumers not only want to protect their families and homes through security systems, but also increasingly see them as the basis for smart home control,” he said. “In the long run, security systems that can achieve interoperability
