QingPing isn’t a name many people are going to be familiar with, but they are the very company behind a lot of Bluetooth-based devices for Xiaomi’s own Smart Home ecosystem, and last year released their very first E-Ink sensor. Earlier this summer the company went one step further and released a HomeKit version of the aforementioned product, also using Bluetooth (BT5.0) and whilst it was initially only available from Chinese online stores like AliExpress etc, it has now finally surfaced on many regional Amazon stores, including the US.
As already mentioned, it uses E-Ink technology to give a far superior display, as can be seen in the comparison image above, which shows the first-generation product that uses LCD. The sensor itself measures both temperature and humidity and can be set to either ºF or ºC, so it’s good for our US visitors.
Currently is available on Amazon.com for US$24.79, Amazon.co.uk for UK£18.99, Amazon.ca for CDN$42.29, although there’s a CDN$3.00 coupon available, and Amazon.de for just €21.59. It may well be listed on other EU based Amazon stores.
