Our good friend Sebastian has just received the Mi Smart Plug for the EU and has kindly provided us with a few images of this new device, which, as we reported earlier, seems to have surfaced in Slovakia even before it was officially listed in the Mi Home app. This Zigbee smart plug has started to appear at around the same time as the long-awaited EU version of the Aqara plug, which itself seems to be confined to Russian stores at present, although it should start to show up in official Mi Stores throughout Europe eventually.
One thing to note: Sebastian doesn’t currently have an EU Aqara hub in order to test for HomeKit compatibility, so there’s no guarantee that the Mi plug is actually exposed to HomeKit at such, but considering if it’s already compatible with the Current EU Mi hub, then it’s almost guaranteed to work with the Aqara hub, and by extension, would be exposed to HomeKit, given that the smart plugs for other regions (US, Taiwan, China) are all HomeKit compatible.
UPDATE: We’ve had confirmation from one user who confirms the Mi EU plug is indeed exposed to HomeKit.
The basic specs for the plug are:
- connection type – ZigBee
- Electrical rating – 220~240V, 50/60Hz, 10A, Max 2300W
- dimensions – 60 x 60 x 58.5mm
- Overload and overheat protection
- Energy monitoring
Thanks to Sebastian B for the images.
