Not only are they cheap, but from personal experience, they are pretty reliable. However, pairing a Xiaomi sensor to a Samsung SmartThings can be pretty complicated. My previous pos t is still a much easier way to pair the devices.
Here is an alternative method to pair your Xiaomi sensors to your SmartThings hub that revolves around a bit of button clicking. Before moving forward, you will need the Device Handler created. To do this, please refer to my post here on how to do this. I have a smartthings hub WiFi version. I have tried your steps. Is there anything else I need to try? Could they not work with this newest version the ST hub?
I have tried both ways you posted. Could the new ST hub be my limitation? Hopefully not. Hello friend; Thanks a lot for the article. Do you have any idea to solve this problem? Am I missing something? I tried to push the button on the device for 4 seconds, 10 seconds.
Review: Xiaomi Mijia Honeywell Smart Fire Detector
I tried all but it keeps blinking. Also scroll down as the web page sometimes hides and reloads the older events. Also you need to make sure your phone app is searching for new devices when you do the xiaomi device reset otherwise the catchall might not show that was my case awhile ago.
I tried method one with no success on the latest Xiaomi motion sensors… This new method of manually adding worked like a charm. Great to hear that it works with the V3 hub. Which mobile app are you using? I was wondering whether you will update it to include Xiaomi Cameras and a other new devices. Skip to content Home About Privacy Contact us. There I said it!

George October 9, Hi, I have just seen that Amazon have a range of the MI-Home products at very good prices, and that the products use zigbee.
So my questions are ….
Integration with Energie is quite complex, but can be done. Xioami Devices can be individually added but they are not strictly following the same zigbee profile that Smartthings uses the company Says they are only intended for use with their own hub so there are 3 potential issues:.
Many people report having to try 10 or 12 times for each device. But getting your network backbone set up right can be, again, fiddly. This has happened 2 or 3 times in the last two years. If this does happen, you just have to hope things will be ok again in the next update. There are still people using these because of the price, but be prepared for some tears. Its a great cloud based service that a lot of products support now to permit integration between platforms without the need to open up their platform and thus maintain security.
They also can be finicky to get paired, and some people have had issues keeping them connected to their network. There are some repeaters that kick them off the network because their check in period is just longer than the repeater requires. I have over a dozen Xiaomi devices which have been working great for me for over a year. The newest Xiaomi sensors are using zigbee 3. The vast majority you find for sale right now however are the older non standard zigbee protocol.
You can use these with the Xiaomi gateway, but integration between the Mi Home gateway and SmartThings will likely be limited. And currently only the China server supports the zigbee devices and gateway, so when you set up the Mi Home app, make sure to set your location as China.
And typically these sensors can be find much cheaper on sites like Gearbest, AliExpress, and Banggood. All of my Xiaomi sensors came from Gearbest. Also thanks for the tips on places to buy as my UK shops have been limited to Amazon or Vesternet.The name Xiaomi has been showing up more and more when talking about IoT, especially when talking about affordable IoT.
Xiaomi is mostly focused on the Chinese market but has been slowly expanding to Europe mostly phones. The box is the same as every other Xiaomi product with a slight Apple feel to it. I will you how to connect it to the Gateway in the following paragraph. When the smoke detector gets triggered it willll send you a notification via the Mi Home App, even outside your home.
If you did hear it, your device is functioning normally! If you want you can enable monthly reminder. The Mi-Home app will send you a notification that it is time for the monthly test and it will execute the self-test. You can adjust the sensitivity by change the installation site, this way you can adjust it to the room.
You have the three following options:. This can be done via the Mi Home app, available on the Play store and the App store. The app is mostly English but some parts are still Chinese, it is still very usable though.
The pairing process is quite easy, the gallery under here will guide you through it enable information for instructions! After that you have unlocked the smart features!
If you click on the smoke detector you will be able to edit things like installation site or enable tandem mode. After you have clicked this button the alarm and light will immediately stop, but the device will also disable itself for 70 seconds. If you want to test the sound of the device, you can simulate it going off without actually burning something. This can be done by holding the button for 3 seconds.
You can self-test the device without the app! This can be done by clicking the button on the device for one second, the light will and sound will indicate the status of your smoke detector. If your device is going off and the indicator light is yellow not redit means the battery is empty and it wants you to change it.
You can press the button once to disable it for 12 hours, after those 12 hours it will continue to go off until you replace it with a new battery. You can but not recommend disable the low battery warning by holding the button for 3 seconds to return it to normal operation mode. It will continue to work as usual but this is not recommended because you might forget to replace it.
Because of this it will not be able to warn you anymore because you returned it to normal mode. The device is powered by a CRa battery, which some of you might know from being used in old-ish cameras. If you replace an old battery make sure to self-check the device after you have replaced the old battery, you want to be sure the battery is working properly.
The main idea for me was that I can add them to my HomeAssistant.
After some struggles of identifying the devices, they worked perfectly. They also work for Domoticz but I do not use it myself. In conclusion, the device actually quite surprised me. I did not expect for it to have this many features, like the self testing via the app or buttons or setting the sensitivity with the installation site. The device even has tons of features without pairing it with the gateway, like certain beeping and light combinations for device status or battery warnings that you can disable for a certain time period.
Being able to choose if you want to mount it with screws or adhesive was also a, not expected, but certainly welcome surprise, mounting the device itself was also super easy and can be done in a minute.
The design itself it one of the best things though. They are so small that you barely notice them on your ceiling. And even if you did notice them, you would not mind it because they look so premium and well rounded.
I think Mijia and Honeywell did a great collaboration on this one and I would love to see more products from them please make a smart thermostat. At first I expected a smoke detector with an IoT sticker on it, but was definitely surprised with how feature packed it was. This is really helpful!Following on from the thread here. This is so that people are able to find my device handlers easier and concentrate any discussion specific to my version of the handlers rather than previous ones made by others.
However, once they stay successfully paired for a few hours, they have been proven over the last couple of months to be extremely reliable. However, I think it is fair to warn people that this is no guarantee that they will continue to work in the future. More information about pairing in the original thread here and here.
I would suggest people refer to that thread for lot of valuable discussion about the devices and pairing rather than asking here. So YMMV. I do not expect these to work as it only started working on V2 after a firmware update Q4 of Any news on your temp sensor?
I never received them and still trying to get my money back. Have not reordered in the meantime so will not be able to work on that device any time soon. But I still do not get the battery update, does it take time initially to appear? EDIT: I paired a Xiaomi motion sensor using same method, and same symptoms, no battery level and the configure tile does not work. All of this is in the original thread. If you get nothing after a few hours you need to repair until it sticks.
This is nothing to do with my handler. I strongly recommend people have a look through the links in the OP to help answer these questions. Hi Wayne. Sorry to split hairs here. Do you mean re-pair or repair as in fix. Again sorry for the question. It is a pain, but you only need to go through it at the beginningonce done they seem to work great.
In fact, in my set-up more reliable than my smartthings branded sensors. So, I created a device handler from your code motion sensor and saved and published. Right, initially adding it as a new device in the IDE is what was causing the problem for me. Removing that and just standing next to the hub and pushing the reset button in a random fashion finally found it as a new device and seems to be working well, for now.
Thanks a4refillpad for setup a new thread and putting everything together. I finally got my Xiaomi motion sensor today and was able to paired it with SmartThings in less than 3 minutes. The sensitivity, distance, and motion detect angle are way better than Samsung SmartThings Motion Sensor.
Question, is the Configure button suppose to do anything? It does in fact enrolls some configuration down to the device. The handler does now send the config down automatically when the device joins so may not be necessary having the tile any more. I also wanted to know the best place to get the motion sensors as I saw you did not receive some of your products?
You can connect without the hub. I would advise adding insurance option to any orders made with gearbest and others if you make a larger order. I found that you are left without any compensation if you item does not turn up otherwise. I only had one issue with GB in many many orders, and was about a refund and return… they were taking to long and paypal resolved….At the end ofXiaomi announced that it was bringing its smart home tech to the western world.
Those devices, and a few new additions, are now available through Xiaomi's dedicated Amazon store front. With Alexa and Google Assistant in the mix,it's clear that Xiaomi has plans to be a major smart home player outside of China. However, you'd be a fool to think that Xiaomi is a newcomer to the smart home party. A damned fool. Over in China there's an absolute mountain of connected Xiaomi gadgetry on sale.
And by mountain, we mean mountain: there are more than 20 security cameras, five smart fridge models, four smart speakers, a couple of connected washing machines, ten robot vacuum cleaners… you get the idea. Xiaomi has even teamed up with big western names — Philips and Honeywell to name a few — for co-branded smart home devices.
The good news is that you don't have to wait for Xiaomi to drip feed us these goodies — you can order them directly from China right now, using dedicated retailers like Gearbestwho make it easy to import stuff, with local currencies, worldwide shipping costs and delivery times all clearly stated. Now, there are a couple of caveats here.
Often the instruction manuals in the box will be in Chinese and you'll also have to do a bit of faffing in the Mi app to get things up and running.
The flip side to that is saving a ton of money. Xiaomi products are ever increasing in quality, and devices are often less than half the price of — and better performing than — their bigger name rivals. The Mi Home app is a strange and curious beast. When signing in, you have to select your region. And what you choose here really impacts on what devices you can sync with the app. Our advice — choose 'Mainland China' here and any device you buy should be available for selection when you attempt to add a device to the mix.
The chances are that you'll also struggle to find your newly imported Xiaomi device listed for addition. If you take our advice and go with 'Mainland China' you might find the odd screen or menu in Chinese but, on the whole with the English version of the Mi Home app, at leastyou shouldn't have too many issues.
Like any good smart home ecosystem, the app also lets you set rules and routines, although getting stuff to work outside of the Mi platform even if Alexa compatibility is stated is often more hassle than it's worth.
Anyways, enough build up — let's get onto the main event. Here's our pick of the best Xiaomi smart home devices to buy now…. This is the version of the Mi Home camera that's been made available to westerners. With a colour temperature range of K to K, these lights — like Lifx — don't require a separate hub and can be controlled using Alexa and Google Assistant.
There's a dedicated Yeelight app for controls, although they work just fine in the Mi Home app too. You'll need this smart home hub in order to control the vast array of Xiaomi smart home sensors. It plugs straight into the mains you'll need an adapterand doesn't need to be connected via Ethernet, so is about as hassle free a hub as you could hope for. It also doubles up as a radio, an alarm, a speaker, a doorbell notifier and a night light… but good luck making use of those features unless you can read Chinese.
Roborock is a Xiaomi-backed company, with an ever-increasing army of great robot vacuum cleaners. The entry-level Roborock S4 brings a select collection of features from higher-tier models, such as the flagship Roborock S6but at a more affordable price point.
Roborock's most inexpensive smart robot vacuum is anything but cheap, however, offering unmatched value with a performance that belies its price tag.Simplify setup process for xiaomi devices to SmartThings. Donation If this project helps you, you can give me a cup of coffee. Screenshots total. Oh, so I should be able to install the Docker image on anything then? No requirement for an ARM processor? So I tried running your Docker container on Windows, but it just reboots over and over. I assume an ARM processor is required.
Would it be possible to setup your repo so that it can be directly integrated with the SmartThings IDE? Just Mi Connector let you know what you have. Even if you add device manually, you type only address and token in the form. Community Created SmartApps.
You can control Xiaomi devices at SmartThings. Lastest version.

Whoa, nice!!!I am sur i have seen a smartapp to connect smartthings with the xiaomi mi home gateway. I want to my xiaomi device were connected to the xiaomi gateway, and the xiaomi gateway connected to my smartthings hub.
They share only the name. Thank you! I got confused, too. So two different companies, two different countries, with two different product lines that happened to share a partial name. But any integrations built for use with the energenie MiHome cloud will not work with the Xiaomi gateway or the Xiaomi Devices.
