Possible suggested uses behind the washing machine dishwasher under the sink in the cellar or part of the property prone to flooding.

Hang inside a cotton bag on your washing line to let you know to bring the washing in.

Hang from a string in the bath to let you know when it's reached the correct level or on bathroom/kitchen floor if you or a family member is prone to forgetting to turn the tap off.
I like that it’s not only a sensor but also an adornment.

Have you seen any deals for temp sensor and base unit too? Thanks!

Good price. Especially considering it's also an adornment.
I quite like the ideas of leaving it outside to get notified to bring the washing in when it's raining. Also it's function as an adornment is appealing.
Voted hot for its use as an adornment
Ordered! Got my Gateway and a few sensors yesterday and have been playing around, setting scenes on the Mi Home app - brilliant stuff as I expected it to be...with the caveat that yeah, a lot of the set-up involves the Chinese language.... But it's not rocket science and YouTube video tutorials are out there. Just been accepted to the Xiaomi UK Facebook group where I'm hoping to pick up some tips on how to tweak things (like changing the time displayed by my Dafang cams)

This is the combined Zigbee gateway hub and ip camera. A couple of pounds more than the last time I posted as a deal, but still 4 quid off the usual price at Gearbest.

The thermometer/humidity sensor has been lower, but is a couple of pounds off just now too.

If I buy the camera in previous link does it mean I don't need a hub/gateway like this as well

Got a few of the Aqara sensors that I've been using with SmartThings, they are brilliant.
Not sure I have a practical use lined up for this yet, but it'll work nicely with the rest of the Aqara gear and it's bound to be useful at some point.

I'd highly recommend the camera mcek posted instead of the gateway. I have both and my gateway is now pretty much redundant.
The only issue I had with the camera as a gateway is that the door sensors don't send a notification on the mobile. If I check the app I can see the open/close events.

Any solutions for this?

PS: thanks op, ordered

This camera hub has been on sale from october, and is advertised as saving money on the previous gateway hub and a separate camera. I'd expect the same hub functionality, plus no need for a chinese plug adaptor if you have a spare mobile phone charger.

I got the camera with included hub mentioned above set it to main land China but it still wouldn't install on the network Even tried with a different router setup the only way I could get it to work was to set it up on a hotspot with my phone not ideal because it's separate from all the other sensors I think it maybe the newer cameras with a mac address starting with 34 have a problem outside China so the advice I'd give is get a separate hub not one included in the camera mentioned above.

Yes mine is working fine now, just need some way of the smart hub to send a noise so i can tell if I have a breakin, at the moment I just get a message
Still dont know what it is
Would let you know if you've wet the bed I assume
Which camera ? They will generally set up by themselves using Mi Home App with your router. Singapore server not working for me so I use mainland china. If you press add manually it gives you a number of camera options to chose from. Most of the other servers are very limited in terms of integrated devices. The China server has just about everything on the + or add manually section.

The Mi Temperature and Hot water sensor is on the china list. Just checked. I do have a gateway as well and when I pressed the hot water /temperature sensor picture the gateway responded immediately albeit in chinese. Look on Youtube for helpful videos

Don't suppose you know if the linked camera will work with Zoneminder?

I don't think it will, I believe it connects through the server to the MiHome app for the hub functions of course, but the camera stores 12 second clips on their server or liveview through their app. If they open it up with developer mode like the original gateway, maybe there'll be some access to the camera as you'll assign your network ip address.

The camera with the built-in hub I've set other cameras up before even the dafang by changing the app versions, setting to mainland China ect but no look with the one with built in hub personally I'd get a separate hub and run sensors off it that's the setup I have and I'd recommend going that way, only trying to help.

Doubt it, the flooded bed would overspill onto the floor and only when the room level rises to a few millimetres above the bed will the alarm trigger.
Unless you already use a cabin bed or cot I suppose.
But, I'd hate to presume.
This will be built in to nappies in the near future causing even more waste, pun intended.

I only have the original hub. Some with the camera hub have posted on here, successful setup. But you could be correct about access problems, considering the problems with previous Xiaomi ip cameras and firmware issues. I haven't seen any complaints as yet on gearbest and banggood though. I've gone with Raspberry Pi + camera setup for indoors, trying out opencv for my smartmirror project.
Anyway, for Smartthings, this is wayyy cheaper and nicer than the zwave alternatives, £14 being the cheapest i've seen, and the zwave devices are quite clunky.

Lol
Does anybody have advice on how to order more than one at this price? I was thinking of opening a second GB account but thought I'd check others experiences/advice before doing so

The sensor is surprisingly useful that's why I was looking for another and at this price it's way cheaper than It's ever been.

Open a second account you can still use the same PayPal account and have it delivered to the same house just use another email address try dual apps or install a second user on your phone it just makes it easier to separate the accounts

The clue is in the name....a water sensor
Thanks op, ordered 🔥
where do you get these codes, I have a few of their products but wouldn't mind picking up some motion sensors and maybe a few other bits.

Did you go through any special steps to get them working properly? Mine seem to pair with the Aqara sensors but, in the case of the open/closed sensors, don't seem to play properly or show the battery level. Do you use any integrations from the Smartthings IDE? (Thanks in advance)

I've thought of another use, I had a useless fridge freezer were the drain hole used to get blocked up and we'd have water on the fall by it this could have warn me to unblock the drain hole with the hairdryer.

Instead we bought another fridge freezer in the sale of course, cyber Monday

There's a couple of handlers mentioned on the smartthings forums to support the awards sensors, simple enough to install following the how to on there.
Following on from the idea of leaving one outside to detect rain you could then use this to determine if you have any open windows and warn you to close them
