HONG KONG, Oct. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Tuya Smart (NYSE: TUYA, HKEX: 2391), a global IoT developer service provider, presented a series of energy-saving solutions covering home energy management, SMB Lighting, Smart HVAC, and Smart Mobility, etc. at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition) 2023 (hereinafter referred to as HKEF). “Connect the World, Shape the Future of Energy” is the theme of Tuya’s exhibition, which aims to make it easier for customers all over the world to accomplish energy-saving and efficiency-improving goals.
Today, there is a growing imbalance between global energy supply and demand. According to the Statistical Review of World Energy 2023, global primary energy consumption in 2022 reached a record high, exceeding 600 EJ, and global energy demand grew rapidly. The growth of energy consumption in the Asia-Pacific region was particularly strong. Over the past 20 years, the Asia-Pacific region’s demand for electricity has increased by 200%, and is becoming a major market for global energy development in the future.
In light of this, both upstream and downstream customers in the energy sector are actively looking at environmentally friendly and low-carbon development paths. The energy business is rapidly integrating IoT, AI, cloud computing, and other cutting-edge technology. At the same time, new momentum is emerging for energy industry reform. As a pioneer in the IoT industry, Tuya has a clear understanding of the trend of an environmentally friendly transformation of the global energy sector. With the support of its strong platform capabilities and IoT technology, Tuya has introduced numerous energy-saving solutions that cover a variety of industries and scenarios. At the HKEF, Tuya’s energy-saving solutions were widely praised by customers at home and abroad.
Tuya Smart Home Energy Management System
To Accelerate the Implementation Energy-saving at Home
Home energy management is a key part of energy transformation. Residential electricity consumption accounts for more than 30% of the total social electricity consumption in most countries. Coupled with the aging home electricity equipment and an information gap between power-consuming equipment and the power grid, home energy management is becoming crucial.
To help global developers further explore the home energy-saving market, Tuya has created a home energy management system, providing one-stop IoT energy solutions bother the consumer and utilities markets. Relying on Tuya’s PaaS2.0 and its rich hardware ecosystem, Tuya can provide households, energy installers, operators, and brands with tools for energy collection and management, energy-saving optimization, load scheduling, construction, operation, maintenance management, and realize the smart synergy of the energy chain including solar power, energy storage, charging, and usage.
For example, when the household load uses more electricity than it generates, load scheduling can be carried out to reduce electricity expenses. When the power grid is unstable, or there is a sudden blackout, energy storage, and discharge strategies can be set up during the off-grid period to meet the end-consumers energy usage needs.
For home users, the energy-saving strategies must be easily accessible. After multiple iterations and optimizations, Tuya’s Home Energy Management System launched a brand-new function at the HKEF, which is the integration of energy-saving algorithms, smart equipment, and scenarios. Customers can help end-users add energy-saving scenarios that relate to their equipment with one click through the App. This not only improves convenience and efficiency but also greatly enhances the effectiveness of energy-saving in households. It further promotes the implementation and popularization of home energy management.
Tuya Smart SMB Lighting Solution
Opening up a New Path for Energy-saving in the High-end Lighting Market
In addition to addressing the energy management needs of households, Tuya also showcased its Small and Medium-sized Business (SMB) lighting solutions facing the high-end lighting market.
This solution features core devices such as central control screens, SMB gateways, and voice speakers, along with peripheral products like SMB switches, drivers, high-end speakers, curtain motors, and mood lights, to comprehensively assist developers in creating immersive lighting experiences centered around spaces and people. It attracted many developers to stop by and try it on-site.
For example, to meet the demand for light synchronization in high-end scenarios, Tuya introduced the Zigbee gateway version of the HDMI home screen synchronizer solution, which can not only serve as a Zigbee gateway to control and manage sub-devices, but also synchronize them with the lighting and audio at home. This means that indoor lighting will change colors according to the content of movies or games shown on the screen, creating a more immersive atmosphere.
Through this solution, small and medium-sized businesses can also create a green, healthy, energy-efficient lighting environment with high quality. For example, in apartment and residential scenarios, based on the “human-centric lighting” algorithm, Tuya can simulate the lighting from sunrise to sunset by adjusting parameters such as brightness and color temperature. By achieving lighting transitions throughout the day to better align with the human biological clock and circadian rhythm, bringing a better living experience for residents.
In parking lot scenarios, when a car approaches or leaves, the radar sensing technology incorporated in the Tuya SMB solution can enable lights to automatically turn on or switch to dimmer conditions. It also supports customer-defined lighting ranges, automatically illuminating the lighting fixtures according to the car’s route, thus improving the energy efficiency of lighting devices in all directions.
Currently, the Tuya SMB solution has been implemented in various scenes such as resident houses, villas, museums, art centers, galleries, B&Bs, and hotels, achieving significant energy-saving effects. On average, it can help save 63% energy in office scenarios and approximately 82% in warehouse scenarios.
Tuya Smart HVAC Solutions
