For building management teams, how to provide comfortable services to users as well as improve the energy efficiency inside the building is their main concern. In this smart building showroom, Tuya brought up Tuya Building, the all-in-one smart solution for buildings, to show global customers the energy-saving capability from two dimensions: lighting and heat.

As a complete set of IoT lighting control systems, Tuya’s commercial lighting solution displayed in the Tuya Building area can coordinate the lighting environment according to different scenes and provides full services from smart hardware, and software control to construction management, which can not only reduce building management costs but also reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions.

Besides lighting management, heating management is another big concern for building management teams since its energy consumption accounts for more than 40%. Especially in cold winter, heating is essential.

Tuya’s smart HVAC equipment management platform can help building management teams find a balance between cost control and user experience, which also maximizes energy saving while ensuring the best user experience. For example, for HVAC manufacturers that are managing thousands of HVACs, this platform can effectively manage and analyze energy data and provide visualized solutions. And it can quickly deploy HVAC equipment on the cloud by developing an all-in-one solution for equipment, cloud, platform, and mobile terminals.

It is worth mentioning that the predictive maintenance capability of this platform can effectively prevent in advance, identify in the event and trace the source after the event through remote management of HVAC equipment parameters, thus reducing the cost of manual inspection and promoting the improvement of equipment comprehensive operation and maintenance and operation efficiency.


Smart Home Solutions: "Visible" energy consumption and "tangible" energy saving

If any solutions can calculate how much electricity has been consumed by different home appliances such as air conditioners and heaters and can conduct reasonable distribution of the electricities, the energy efficiency will be improved. Tuya’s showcase of the Home Energy Management Solution is the answer. It can not only enable users to understand household power consumption but also realize home energy savings.

In the home showroom, Tuya displayed several Tuya-enabled smart devices in this solution. When they are connected to the mobile App and the back-end management software, it can visualize the energy data of the entire procedure from photovoltaic power generation, power storage, power distribution, power consumption, and even electric vehicle charging, which enables users to trace the energy.

For example, users can connect the Tuya-enabled metering socket to the water heater at home to figure out the power consumption data of the water heater at any time and the corresponding electricity charges generated. The latest multi-segment billing function enables users to input the electricity price based on the price list from local electric power companies, and further calculate exact electricity expenses.

In addition, Tuya-enabled portable power supply supports attached photovoltaic modules, which can realize synchronous power generation and storage while using. In the meantime, users can understand how much power has been converted and stored, and how much electricity has been saved accordingly through a mobile App.

Professional Lighting Solutions: Help Outdoors and Factories to Achieve Green Development

In cities and towns, it happens sometimes when there is less traffic on main avenues but a lot of traffic in alleys. Street lights on main avenues are often very bright, and the distance between each light is short which causes lots of energy waste, and street lights in alleys are dim and cannot light up every corner. How to control street lighting systems to adapt to different occasions? Tuya’s professional lighting solutions give the answer.

The professional lighting solutions cover areas including outdoors, streets, factories, and so on, and can realize timing function, constant illumination, brightness adjustment, single/group lights control, etc. which will significantly improve the energy-saving efficiency and develop a green and sustainable city.

For example, the NB-IoT street lighting solution can control lights according to the time of sunrise and sunset, and adjust the lights periodically according to the traffic flow. So far, this solution has been applied to the Tuya and Suzhou Taicang smart street lighting transformation project, and it can save up to 60% electricity power based on statistics.

Another case is in Jiangmen Ambofu smart factory, Tuya’s Bluetooth Mesh industrial lighting solution helps this factory to save about 35% of the power. It can help customers to control the light switches of each area, achieve low illumination when no one is working in certain areas as well as realize the dimming control of the lighting from 0% to 100%, which significantly lower the lighting operation and maintenance costs and energy costs.
