In an exclusive interview at the CES Show 2024 with Alex Yang, Co-Founder and COO of Tuya, we gained insights into the convergence of energy management, security, and interoperability. Yang emphasized the importance of energy management in today's landscape, driven by factors such as global events and rising electricity costs. Tuya offers a Home Energy Management System (HEMS) that goes beyond single-device solutions, enabling users to manage energy production, storage, and consumption. This comprehensive approach empowers users to manage their home's energy consumption efficiently throughout the day, maximizing savings.

Given the proliferation of fragmented products, Yang stressed the significance of interoperability in the market. Tuya focuses on providing an open and flexible platform that resolves interoperability challenges and enables users to monitor energy usage, a critical need in today's world. For instance, the platform can help users determine optimal times for activities like charging electric vehicles and operating appliances.

Tuya's HEMS solution caters to two primary segments: manufacturers and "space users," including building management companies, hotels, and commercial spaces. For manufacturers, Tuya offers a holistic approach encompassing smart device development, chip integration, cloud services, and app development. Their platform currently supports over 600,000 different devices, ensuring scalability, security, and compatibility with various communication protocols.
