Earlier this year, Aqara announced a slew of products at their annual presentation event, that includes a new range of sensors (E1 and P1 range), new LED control panels (S1 MagicPad), as well as officially revealing their latest camera, the Camera Hub G3. One section of the presentation focused on smart lighting, and specifically a range of smart lights that magnetically connect to light tracking.
All of these light fixtures will of course be exposed to HomeKit via a suitable hub, which at this point only really includes those hubs that use Zigbee 3.0, including the M1S, M2, P3, G3, E1, MagicPad S1, E1, and even the G2H. They will also be compatible with HomeKit’s Adaptive Lighting functionality.
As these are likely to need pro installation, it’s unlikely these will be for sale outside of Mainland China, where Aqara offers such installation services as a matter of course. We’ve heard that this range will officially launch around November 11th, so hopefully, we’ll know more then, including the price and any extra features.
Thanks to Arthur M for the heads up.
