    Bonjour, super produit Aqara, depuis que le nouveau modèle est sur batterie cela me donne envie d’en acheter un ou deux. Mais j’avoue que le prix du pack complet me repousse un peu, surtout qu’il y a le modèle de chez IKEA qui devrait arriver en France. Mais sympa à vous de nous partager votre avis sur ce produit ainsi que la difficulté de montage et le tarif.

      It will be HomeKit enable after release. And the logo is just a Xiaomi online store.

        Yes. But will it work with the Aqara App? Because if you click the link above, you will see that according to Aqara the hub with the brown sticker on the box is supposed to work with the Mi app only. Not with the Aqara App, although it‘s an Aqara hub.
        Only the Aqara hub with the blue sticker is supposed to work with both apps.
        I just wonder if the brown sticker on the box of the curtain controller also means that it will only work with the Mi app, not with the Aqara app??

          I think both hubs are the same. They could work with MiHome and Aqara home. And the Aqara curtain B1 is a new curtain motor that could work with Apple Home, Mi Home and Aqara Home. At lease it is they told me so.

    Can it be used without the batter connected contantly to the power?

      Yes. The motor itself can connect to a power adapter. Also the battery.
