Global AI + IoT platform, Tuya Smart, has announced a partnership with Time2, the UK home technology company, which is unveiling Clan, its Tuya Smart-based ecosystem of connected, smart home devices controlled by a single app. Thursday, 8th November will see the launch of an initial range of Clan-operated home security devices.
Aimed at all UK households, Time2’s Clan-based devices will make it easy for consumers to protect, monitor and enhance their homes thanks to three new home security cameras, priced from £39.99, as well as a smart light bulb and smart plug sockets. A video doorbell, smoke detector, flood sensor, motion sensor, door and window sensors, alarm siren, light switch and thermostat will follow in early 2019.
Time2 CEO Kam Kothia, said: “The launch of Clan, and our partnership with Tuya Smart, is a significant development for us as a home security and smart home technology brand. More importantly, we’re starting a journey for UK consumers with the promise of high quality devices that will be easy for all to access, working seamlessly with each other and backed by Time2’s unrivalled UK-based support. We’re offering the broad sweep of UK households a newer, easier way to protect their homes and enrich their lifestyles.”
Ease of installation and use is a key feature. With no home hub to configure and no need for technical know-how, householders can set up any Clan-based device on their home WiFi in minutes. Users can then manage their home, no matter where they are physically, from the single app on their smartphone or tablet, or by voice control through Alexa or Google Home.
In addition to manual control, users who wish to, can manage a sophisticated array of scheduling and automation tools powered not only by day and time but by such features as sunrise, sunset and weather conditions, to name a few.
Eva Na, VP of Marketing and Strategy at Tuya Smart, said: “This partnership is a big stride forward for Time2 and Tuya Smart, and it is an honour to help our partner be a part of the UK’s booming trend for IoT. A connected and intelligent life is a future that will soon be available to us all and Tuya is delighted to be a part of it with Time2.”
The Clan At Home app is available now to download for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
The launch of the new range of Clan compatible devices will be celebrated on Thursday 8th November with a 25% discount for customers purchasing on the day, with giveaways and prizes throughout the day on Facebook, Twitter and the Time2 website.
