Tuya Cover

The tuya cover platform creates a simple position-only cover from a tuya serial component.

There are two components, the Tuya bus and the cover that uses it. The Tuya MCU component requires a UART bus to be configured. Put the tuya component in the config and it will list the possible devices for you in the config log.

# Example configuration entry
# Make sure your WiFi will connect
  ssid: "ssid"
  password: "password"

# Make sure logging is not using the serial port
  baud_rate: 0

# Enable Home Assistant API

# Make sure you can upload new firmware OTA

# My dimmer used the hardware serial port on the alternate pins
  rx_pin: GPIO13
  tx_pin: GPIO15
  baud_rate: 9600

# Register the Tuya MCU connection

Here is an example output for a Tuya dimmer:

[21:50:28][C][tuya:024]: Tuya:
[21:50:28][C][tuya:031]:   Datapoint 2: int value (value: 53)
[21:50:28][C][tuya:029]:   Datapoint 5: switch (value: OFF)

On this cover motor, the position control is datapoint 2. Now you can create the cover.

# Create a cover using the dimmer
  - platform: "tuya"
    name: "motor1"
    position_datapoint: 2

Configuration variables:

  • id (Optional, ID): Manually specify the ID used for code generation.

  • name (Required, string): The name of the cover.

  • position_datapoint (Required, int): The datapoint id number of the cover position value.

  • min_value (Optional, int): The lowest position value, meaning cover closed. Defaults to 0.

  • max_value (Optional, int): the highest position value, meaning cover opened. Defaults to 255.

  • invert_position (Optional, boolean): invert the meaning of min_value and max_value. When set to true, min_value will mean opened and max_value is closed.

  • All other options from Cover.
