One of our colleagues in Stockholm, Sweden has finally managed to get his hands on one of the first EU versions of the Aqara hub and has generously shared some images with us, so we can share them with you! In a quick test, the user was able to add the hub to the Mi Home app with the EU server without any issues and the device came with the latest firmware available already installed, which for both the EU and US versions is 1.5.9_000. The usual set of sensors and switches etc. were all also available to be added, although, in the screengrab, they show a US smart Plug, not an EU plug, which according to Aqara’s Facebook page, is still in development.
Our colleague also mentioned that both his Chinese and EU sensors & buttons (Mijia and Aqara) work fine with the new hub set to the EU server, although he hasn’t tested everything yet, but what is great for him personally is that with his Roborock Vaccum, which he has already added to the EU server in Mi Home, now allows him to use it in combination with the sensors and switches that also work with HomeKit via automations, triggers or with simple button presses.
If you happen to be in Sweden, then the place that seems to have this item in stock is netonnet.se although other stores have it listed, and there’s a strong possibility that other stores across the EU will now have it in stock.
Thanks to mszfcz for the images and screengrabs.
