Getting it up and running

Tuya Convert

These switches are Tuya devices, so if you don't want to open them up to flash directly, you can use tuya-convert to initially get ESPHome onto them. After that, you can use ESPHome's OTA functionality to make any further changes.

  • Put the switch into "smartconfig" / "autoconfig" / pairing mode by holding any button for about 5 seconds.
  • The status LED blinks rapidly to confirm that it has entered pairing mode.
