Type of review

In general, a useful thing . You can screw a flood sensor and a fire sensor and you can sleep / work peacefully (if you don’t forget to pay for wifi :)

  • The cheapest entry into the theme of smart home. For 1500 I bought 2 window-door sensors, 2 motion detectors and 1 head unit. Operation for more than six months. They receive a notification from the front door that someone opened / closed the door (I bought it for this).
  • 1. For all the time I caught 2 glitches on the connection (after turning off the power), I had to reinstall it forcibly (connect). 2. If you forget to pay for WiFi, then nothing will work 3. Although the application works adequately, although the region of use of the 2022 is Hong Kong, the notification time is displayed +4 hours, no ate has removed this glitch

The product sucks and the quality is horrible.

Take only as a hub for needs inside the house for other sensors. And then most WiFi devices are supported by . Alice without a hub. Scheduled smart socket does not work at all, Chinese servers are buggy.

  • Beautiful packaging and appearance! For minor tasks inside the home.
  • As an alarm is a useless thing, notifications on Android only do not work, only if you go into the program itself in the log. As messages do not pop up, all permissions to the program are given. Teophone Huawei. Don't waste your money!

Good quality product, I rate this purchase excellent.

For me, it doesn’t matter whether the PCT or not, but Xiaomi has a difference and aliexpress also understands this and in these cases they go to a meeting and everything can always be solved .

  • All OK! I was very pleased that the set of sensors turned out to be certified for 2022, although as my purchases on showed, not all PCT goods.
  • With xiaomi it is very important, since devices made for the China region, after setting up, are not displayed in the interface of the "mi home" program of the 2022 region, not all !

Super set, if not overpriced. Got pros: For those who are in the subject, you flash on owrt and have a full-fledged ZB smart home gateway with BLE Has some cons: Those who do not fumble will whine that nothing works. And all the functionality is to shoot a push in mihome if the door is opened at home.

Fits the description completely, very satisfying.

Lives and is used more than a year. Satisfied, bought more sensors and buttons. What is included in the kit is only enough 'to start' Got pros: Suitable for ru region. Everything works, the scripts are spinning, the automation is muddied. With its cons: There are no questions about the set itself, but there are questions about the work of mi home. But this is a topic for another conversation.

Well done, but I wont buy any more.

There is a project on the Internet that makes a zeegbi2mqtt gateway out of a device, for this, in general, you just need to buy it Has some pros: Excellent form factor, good sensors included, if you buy somewhere at a discount just consider it as a gift Different cons: Devices that can be connected here quickly run out, of course, in the interface you will be scared that there are only 6 of them, in fact there are much more if you connect directly with a button.

Disappointed with the purchase, useless products.

We bought a gateway in the hope that it would be possible to connect a smart switch from Akar to it, there are some switches from Akar in the Mi Home application, after the purchase it turned out that these switches are not compatible with this gateway. There may be more compatible devices in the future. But so far the purchase has been useless.

A good option to play around and feel the concept of a smart home with your own hands without getting into the wiring and without big expenses Has pros: The quality of the packaging and the devices themselves are pleasant to take in hand, Xiaomi is clearly learning from Apple how to impress the consumer. Ease and convenience of setup. Some cons: Devices from the 2022 region out of the box are categorically not friendly with devices from the Chinese region

Disgusting, would not recommend to anyone!

The order was delivered on 10/30/2022 and came to the point at 17.30, the seller said that there were bags, but he would not disassemble them because people were going to receive them. I waited 15 minutes and left people were walking constantly. I received an SMS at 202022 that I can receive a work item until 21.00. There is no point in delivery on 10/30/2022 if the receiving interval is only 40 minutes, I could not receive it. Order 27962085 through Ya Market was placed on 10/27/2022

Well done, but I wont buy any more.

I took it only because of the sensors. In China, such a set of sensors with a button will cost about 3500. I took a 2022 hub in Aliexpress for 2555+. Hub did not plan to use. Yes, and I could not, because the plug on the hub is bent. Newly sealed set. Opened it personally.

  • The sensors connected to the China region without any problems. I am satisfied.
  • Poor quality control service at Xiaomi

Im amazed! It was definitely worth the money!

For home automation I use Home Assistant, for each device of this kit there was a use, including for the gateway (it can be used as a night light, doorbell and "alarm" with sound or light about certain events. Its pros: Good kit. Everything separately will cost significantly more. The advantages of this whole kit are as follows: 1. High quality workmanship; 2. Each device in this kit works perfectly in a third-party Home Assistant system. Why not MiHome - see the "disadvantages". Got cons…

The best price for such a product, I will buy more!

Different pros: Not an expensive kit compared to buying in China, but the functionality is the same. All sensors and buttons are connected to the Chinese region and work with their gateways. Different cons: The gateway from the kit is a stripped-down version, but with the help of articles from the Internet on its refinement, it can also work in a smart home system.

Not a good product, not worth the money.

It was a mix from vesa that I found on 4pda, and with that, I was able to change the region to China and plug it into a Chinese outlet. The gateway's features are limited in comparison to the Chinese version. I used it as a test, and the total cost with bonuses was close to $2,000 USD. Can be had for this price. Sonoff and wireless sensors form the basis of my smart home setup. The pricing is much lower than the Xiaomi version, however the application's automation features are limited in…

  • AC adapter with a European connector
  • No radio required; all sensing is done locally. Chinese switches and sensors won't plug in unless you do the tambourine dance.

Just super, it's beautifully made, I'm very happy with it.

I twisted my brain with scripts, it seems that you connect everything correctly, but it works crookedly. In general, the simpler the Wishlist, the fewer surprises, such as a siren at night :) Has pros: It suits me that the mi home region is 2022. Works only with those sensors and equipment that are displayed in your personal account. Has some cons: I bought a temperature and humidity sensor that remembers the parameters - it does not work in the 2022 region. Once again, the equipment only works

Well, if there is a goal - take it. If you want to take a "try" - do not take it, as a result, maybe I'll take it to the dacha. Different pros: They are really small, much smaller than it looks on the phone. The assembly is on top, everything is neat and beautiful. Some cons: I didn’t come up with applications, connecting the house to the second phone = dancing with a tambourine. I advise you to immediately watch the connection server at the xiaomi application.

I put a motion sensor, set the conditions to turn on the night light when driving after 21 hours and turn it off after 10 seconds. It seems that everything worked, but later it became buggy, then it turns on then it doesn’t. I removed the device and added it again, I haven’t created a script yet, but he reproduces it from somewhere old. In general, it was not possible to set it up for correct operation. Then I decided to check the second sensor, at first it didn’t turn on at all, it turned out

  • You can say they are not, cheaper than analogues for the Chinese market, perhaps
  • As many already write, it does not work with Chinese devices, but that's okay, one motion sensor does not work for me, and the second one is buggy.
