Tuya “T6E” is a 4-inch Android touch control panel & Zigbee gateway for OEMs

Tuya T6E is a 4-inch control panel with a touchscreen running Android 8.1 on Rockchip PX30, WiFi, Bluetooth, and Zigbee,  and designed to be wall-mounted for home automation and other HMI applications.

It looks fairly similar to the ITEAD NSPanel Pro introduced last month, for Tuya’s “Central Control System” (CSS) appears to be mostly designed for OEMs who want to roll their own products with custom firmware.

Tuya T6E specifications (details vary depending on OEM requirements):

  • SoC – Rockchip PX30 quad-core Arm Cortex-A35 processor @ up to 1.5GHz with Mali-G31 MP2 GPU
  • System Memory – 1GB, 2GB, or 4GB RAM
  • Storage – 4GB to 8GB  eMMC flash
  • Display – 4-inch 480×480 IPS screen with 5-point capacitive touch
  • Audio
    • Dual-array microphone with noise reduction
    • 1 Watt speaker

    • 10/100Mbps Ethernet RJ45 port
    • 2.4 GHz 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi 4
    • Bluetooth LE 4.2 and Bluetooth Mesh (Tuya SigMesh)
    • Zigbee 3.0 gateway based on Tuya TYZS13 module
    • RS485 serial port
  • Misc – Light sensor, 2x built-in power relays.
  • Power Input – 110V AC @ 60Hz and and 220V AC @ 50 Hz

Tuya T6E Interfaces
Some Tuya T6E Interfaces: Ethernet, fire alarm, underfloor heating, and light control & RS-485

The system runs the older Android 8.1 like other devices based on Rockchip PX30, and you can create your own custom device on the Tuya website. The website should also generate firmware automatically for your requirements, but it was shown not to be secure in the past. Maybe this has improved since then.

You’ll find the Tuya “T6E” on the Tuya Expo website under various names including Moes T6E, Zemismart T6E, Hihome Smart Home Control Panel, UEMON Smart Home Control System, Smatek, Aubess Ethernet Smart Control Panel, and Corui Tuya Multi-functional Touch Screen with Alexa. You’ll also notice other “Central Control Panels” (CCP) or “Central Control Systems” (CCS), as the company calls them, with different display sizes.

That’s a decent amount of RAM.

I suppose it needs video decode for surveillance cameras, like the similar device posted a couple of weeks ago. And it could play cooking videos if it was stuck in a “smart fridge”.

RAM also depends in models. I have now seen 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB variants.

There are a lot of inaccuracies in this article. The images belong to S6E model for SEA market. T6E models have their backplate in EU dimensions without relay and RS485 outputs. Ethernet connectivity differs depending on the brand and majority of the models i’ve seen come in 1GB RAM

see https://prnt.sc/bmpl8EdXo5xd for differences

T6E is the model of the device intended for EU markets as shown on https://expo.tuya.com/product/835054. The PCB is designed and manufactured by Smatek and is marked ST-PX30-T6E-V1.0 and the same one is in NSPanel
You don’t even need to have Tuya on it all: https://smatek.en.alibaba.com/productgrouplist-916344695/EU_UK_4_ODM_T6E_NZ.html

So is the Sonoff NSPanel Pro from ITead also a rebranded T6E made by Tuya?

Not at all. Tuya isn’t making the hardware, they just provide their Zigbee module and dashboard/panel app for their ecosystem. You can order a plain Android panel with no firmware on it or choose your own starting app from Smatek https://smatek.en.alibaba.com/productgrouplist-916344695/EU_UK_4_ODM_T6E_NZ.html or choose the SEA version https://smatek.en.alibaba.com/productgrouplist-916205049/Asian_4_ODM_S6_NZE.html

This is in their item description: https://prnt.sc/uRSh5wWCU4pU

Cool project; Blakadder has managed to run a full Zigbee2MQTT instans natively directly on T6E for creating a stand-alone Z2M Zigbee gateway -> https://blakadder.com/t6e-z2m/

How about cellular communications? Is there any type of cellular dialer that will interface with this controller that will provide for a complete standalone alarm system?
