This Xiaomi Mijia and Honeywell collaboration fire alarm and smoke detector can be connected via the Gateway 2 to your smart home app, and will send phone notifications if it detects either smoke or too much heat.

Xiaomi Mijia's distinctive style can be seen in the design, and Honeywell's heating know-how can be found in the components.

Alongside this you'll get the Mejia Gateway 2 which acts as an alarm, a light, and a radio which connects to your phone's app. This will acts as a secondary alarm and will send notifications to your connected devices. Pretty cool.

"Your house is on fire; emergency services in China are on their way; please wait 2-6 weeks"

You can also use these with a Samsung SmartThings hub instead of the Xiaomi gateway. It requires a little more effort with installation of custom device handlers but works perfectly once up and running.

Only on China server from what I can tell, so if you have stuff in the EU server might be something to consider

On Zigbee? Where can one find out this info?
The Gateway 2 works with the Xiaomi Home app, which can then be connected to the smoke alarm for notifications. I don't think it connects you to the emergency services, it isn't that advanced.
for those who are interested, the gateway connects happily through homeassistant, and your paired devices (such as motion sensors, door sensors etc) can be accessed through homeassistant. i've got aqara motion sensors controlling hue lights, for example, which is pretty neat.

Most of their stuff is on the mainland Chinese servers apart from the basics...

I have two of these and use directly with Zigbee on Smartthings without any Xiaomi gateway or servers.
I have these running on home assistant, awsome combination. I ran them for a bit on the China server and when i tested them, the notification was reliable albeit in Chinese characters. Great price for the bundle.

Bought these for much less last year, £17/£18 from memory. Definitely less than £37.

How do you get the motion sensor to work with hue lights?


Through home assistant. Basically, you configure home assistant to talk to both your hue hub and the mijia hub. Then, you use the home assistant automations capability to set actions based on the trigger. In this case, the trigger is motion detection, and the action is turning on the light. It's pretty simple to use. I made mine more complicated by using a variable for the brightness of the lights that changes at set times (eg so it's dim after 11pm) and by having a button so I can have the lights just stay on rather than reacting to the motion sensor as well - it's pretty flexible.

I stopped doing this and sold my smartthings hub in the end - the smartthings stuff runs the custom handlers for xiaomi stuff remotely and they operate it as a queue so your event might take a while to turn on the lights if they're busy dealing with other people's stuff.

Personally, I found smartthings to be slow and unreliable - especially compared to home assistant. Imo, as soon as you have to install custom device handlers, you're better off going to home assistant or something similar instead. Added bonus - you can run it on a raspberry pi for a fraction of the cost of a smartthings hub, too.

Now this will sound stupid, is home assistant an app or a complete new device that I need to purchase to configure this?

HA is powerful but has a steep learning curve. Better to start with ST and progress to HA if desired.

Which ST hub is the best to go for if you don't mind me asking? Last time I looked it was clear as mud for some reason I can't remember,

It's software that you run on a device. I run it on my server, but it can run on a raspberry pi, and hassio is in easily installable version.

I dont think it makes a whole lot of difference in terms of functionality. From memory I think the v3 may lack battery backup but I'm not sure. I have a v2 and have never had any issues with it in terms of capability.

I didn't find it hard myself (but to caveat that, I'm a software developer - although my 10 year old daughter understands it just fine), but smartthings is a bit easier to get to grips with if you stay within their supported devices, yeah. As soon as you get into custom device handlers, it quickly becomes complex and unreliable and slow and far more frustrating in my experience. Especially with the xiaomi stuff - they don't use a standard handshake time, so they have a tendency to drop the devices and stop responding, and then you have to reset everything. What's the point in unreliable automation? I also found their support poor and don't recall they fixed any bugs or updated in the year I used it, or added any new devices (e.g. Kasa plugs were completely unsupported at the time). I was bitterly disappointed with smartthings, which was a shame as it had the potential to be a very well connected device.

Interestingly, I believe you can connect a smartthings hub to home assistant to act as a bridge.

Personally, if you're going down the xiaomi sensor route, I'd say forget smartthings entirely and save yourself the time, money, and hassle.

I've been using ST for a while with a range of Xiaomi devices (door sensors, motion detectors and smoke alarms), as well as Hue lights, canary and blink cameras, sonos speakers, aeotec dimmers, Nest and Hive devices, various smart plugs and my harmony remote. I agree that the experience with Xiaomi stuff can be a bit clunky, but once you get the hang of pairing the devices I've had little issue with them personally. I also agree that if you're having to write custom DHs then you're probably better off moving to HA, but using other people's is little more than a copy and paste exercise once you've done it once. I've not written off the idea of moving to HA in the future, but I've yet to find a compelling reason to make the switch. My point is that you can be a fairly heavy home automation user (which most people aren't) and still get on just fine with SmartThings, but I guess it all comes down to personal experience, preferences and the devices you want to play with.

Ultimately, it depends on how much flexibility and control you want. For me, the main reasons I dropped smartthings were reliability and speed. That it didn't support my kasa plugs or my netatmo thermostat was the final straw. Throw in that, should my Internet connection die, you lose all of the custom handlers, and I realised that it was useless for my purposes.

Switching to ha fixed all of the issues I had, plus gave me a *lot* more control. I could do much smarter stuff, too - set finer dimming levels, change the levels based on timers or ambient light levels, add in dual controls and overrides for lights trivially, control more devices from more suppliers, and because it's all local processing my Internet connection is irrelevant. I can tie stuff to plex (eg have the lights dim automatically when I watch a movie, and come back up when i pause or stop it). I can also create custom control panels on old tablet devices to control the house, too. Basically, ha is more powerful, more flexible, and local.

But yeah, it does very much depend on what you want to achieve, what devices you're using, how reliable you want it to be, and how much you enjoy playing with this sort of thing
Can anyone help am looking for a wired version of this. Need a total 4 or 5.
