Tutorial for Tuya Support Center
Introduction to Tuya Support Center
The Tuya Support Center is an intelligent service system of Tuya, designed to improve its service quality and efficiency. As a platform communication tool, it can solve your communication and collaboration problems with Tuya during product development and after-sales service. The Tuya Support Center consists of the Tech Chat and Service Support. Any problems encountered during development can be submitted in the “Tech Chat”, and any after-sales problems of the product can be submitted in the “Service Support”. Tuya has a professional technical support team to respond to your problems efficiently. At the same time, you may be informed of the progress of the problem solution in time because the progress of the problem solution and the problems already solved are traceable.
