I don't know if this is the proper place for a request but I thought I would mention. It seems that there are alot of new color bulbs, sensors, receptacles that work with Alexa but they don't not require a hub. These devices are all wifi based.
I myself have several of these Chinese color bulbs that do not work with a controller. They do however work with a smartlife app on my cell phone. I would love to be able to issues these devices commands from HE.
Would it be possible to make or change an existing driver to support these devices?
+1 on the control of the Tuya devices. I have several adj white bulbs (ISB1000) and color bulbs (ISB800) plus the power socket (ISC100) as well as the motion sensor (S200) and d/w sensors (S100). It would be great to be able to control these in HE.
I've managed to install tasmota in my tuya switches and all works like a charm.
Also I've created my own mqtt driver for them.
I guess supporting native tuya protocol is pita and not reliable, it'd be a moving target
