I have an existing 3rd party device running linux. I need to be able to discover it with TuyaSmart.

Tuya's online docs seem to indicate the Link SDK is appropriate for this situation. On this page, https://developer.tuya.com/en/link-sdk, developers are encouraged to 'Download TuyaOS Link SDK in GitHub.' There is no link provided. Where do I obtain the Link SDK?

I am able to connect it to the Tuya MQTT server using the example code https://github.com/tuya/tuya-iot-core-sdk, but that SDK also appears to lack support for device discovery.

Re: Discovery and pairing of Third Party devices using Link SDK

Hi,

LinkSDK (now also known as "tuya connect kit") supports pairing third-party devices according QR code scanning or Bluetooth discovery. Please refer to: https://github.com/tuya/tuya-connect-ki ... embedded-c for more information, we provide some examples to show how it works.

BTW: We will release a new version of the "tuya connect kit" at the end of August. This version will support more pairig and control options.

Re: Discovery and pairing of Third Party devices using Link SDK

My device has only WiFi, so I need a discovery option that does not require BT or QR code.

I've been monitoring github for updates, but the last commit to https://github.com/tuya/tuya-connect-ki ... embedded-c was July 7, 2023. Do you have an revised schedule for additional discovery options?
