Smart Home Products by Tuya to Launch on Microsoft Azure Cloud

By Ken Briodagh August 27, 2019

Tuya, an AI and IoT company, recently announced a new partnership with Microsoft at Computex 2019 that reportedly will deliver Tuya-powered smart home and office products on Microsoft's Azure Cloud in Q3 of this year.

In addition to the cloud partnership, Microsoft and Tuya said they will be cooperating on customer development, offering the Tuya platform and Azure Cloud platform as options for smart home and smart office device developers from the outset.

“Our partnership with Tuya aligns with Microsoft Azure's goal of using the cloud and AI to build increasingly intelligent edge devices and solutions,” said Mark Linton, GM, Consumer & Device Sales, Microsoft. “Tuya's wide offering of customers and solutions immediately expands the connected systems and devices that make up the intelligent edge, boosting the power of smart devices in homes and offices.”

The partnership is designed to provide Tuya access to Azure’s 5 million enterprise customers, who will get access to the platform already powering lighting, appliances, and environmental and surveillance equipment. In return, Tuya’s more than 90,000 customers will have more cloud options, the release said.

“We're excited to be working with Microsoft to bring the benefits of Azure to our platform customers,” said Alex Yang, co-founder and COO, Tuya. “Azure's capability in providing storage, backup and recovery is a great benefit for any smart device we power, whether it be for the smart home or office.”
