Aqara, today announced its participation in this year’s IFA show, where it introduces an array of new smart home devices. Among these innovations are the Smart Lock U200, Camera E1, Dual Relay Module T2, Ceiling Light T1M, and an EU-style wall outlet. Aqara will be showcasing these cutting-edge products, along with other intelligent home technologies and solutions, at its booth (H22, 214).
Remaining committed to making smart home technology accessible to households globally, Aqara continues to expand its product lineup to cater to diverse home automation needs. The five new products unveiled at IFA are projected to be available for order in the coming months.
SMART LOCK U200
Aqara’s novel Smart Lock U200 presents a retrofit solution, offering the convenience of keyless home access to a wide user base. Designed as Aqara’s inaugural Matter-over-Thread smart lock, the U200 ensures interoperability with a variety of smart home ecosystems and devices. Utilizing an Aqara NFC card or specified NFC-enabled mobile devices, users can now unlock with unparalleled ease. Secure access options encompass auto-unlock, fingerprints, PIN codes, and mobile apps. Aqara plans to initiate its first Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign later this year for the Smart Lock U200.
Expanding its home surveillance camera range, Aqara introduces the 2K Pan/Tilt Camera E1. Like other indoor cameras from the company, this new camera supports major third-party platforms such as Apple Home (including HomeKit Secure Video), Amazon Alexa, and Google Home. Leveraging Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2, the camera offers smoother live viewing and simplified pairing. Features include AI-driven person detection, person tracking, and versatile storage options like cloud, microSD, and NAS storage.
DUAL RELAY MODULE T2
The Dual Relay Module T2 serves as a versatile home automation solution, granting convenient control over various devices including lights, motorized window coverings, garage doors, boilers, electric heaters, and underfloor heating. Built on Zigbee 3.0, the dual relay module supports Matter-over-bridge and major third-party platforms. It provides energy consumption monitoring and incorporates safety features like overheat and overload protection. With AC (100-250V) or DC (24-60V) power options, the 2-channel relay handles total and per-channel loads up to 10 Amps.
Ceiling Light T1M
Following the August 2023 announcement of the LED Strip T1, Aqara introduces the Ceiling Light T1M as its second global smart lighting device. Boasting a diameter of approximately 50 centimetres, this ceiling light offers a wide range of hues from dimmable whites to 16 million vibrant colours, enabling users to set ideal lighting for different moods and occasions. Features include an independently addressable RGB ring for gradient effects and integration into home automation scenarios. The Ceiling Light T1M, like other Zigbee devices from Aqara, showcases low idle consumption, Matter-over-bridge support, and compatibility with major platforms.

It assists users in tracking energy consumption and can be configured to detect and report the status of plugged devices, enabling automation triggers. Furthermore, as a Zigbee network repeater, the outlet enhances network reliability and responsiveness for compatible smart home devices.
