Good price. I’m looking build up a smart home system. These xiaomi sensors always get good reviews. As a start point though, would people recommend a xiaomi hub (cheaper but the limitations of basically being a Chinese product, plug, regions, Chinese radio etc.) or a smartthings hub as a more stable platform?
They will connect to Samsung SmartThings Hub, but I guess if you had one you’d probably already know. Worth looking into that though. It’s a fantastic addition to a smart home, specially for security.
AFAIK they link to your network via the Xiaomi gateway. After that you can link them to your Home assistant. Haven't seen MI home on IFTTT but the yeelights are there. Same for Alexa as that's how these get put on to the mi home app Perhaps someone can correct me if I'm wrong
I also want this type of product at this prixe to work with my hive bulbs.lol
If i wanted a door sensor as a trigger for IFTT with my Hue Lights, Nest thermostat etc would this be the best solution? I saw above that I'd need a gateway which is a bit of a pain - is there anything on the market that can use my existing Philips Hue Hub or work straight away with my Alexa ecosystem? Thanks!!
