As you might know this sensor is not the only smart home equipment from Xiaomi. There are a lot of different gadgets for your everyday problems, but you’ll still need an extra gateway to connect them all. All of them can be controlled through the Xiaomi Mijia App.
The build-up of the sensor is pretty simple. It’s just 9 cm/3.54 inches in diameter and 3 cm/ 1.18 inches thick and only weighs 85 grams.
It can detect temperatures from -20 to 60 degrees and humidity from 0 to 100%. You can have all the insights through the app and get notifications if something should be out of the norm.
Its powered by a CR2032 button cell, which is included. That means you are not dependant on a socket and can easily install the Xiaomi Mi Temperature and Humidity Sensor pretty much everywhere you need it. It might also be useful to have more than one, so you have all corners of your home covered.
You might want to be careful where you attach the sensor with the adhesive on the backside, as you could rip wallpaper when changing the location. But on the other hand you don’t need to drill or screw anything into the wall at all, which is pretty nice.
The Xiaomi Mi Temperature and Humidity Sensor is a nice expansion of the Xiaomi smart home system. Only downside is that you need a gateway for the sensors, but you can buy that for around $30 (for example here at AliExpress) and can add all other kinds of sensors too. There’s nothing stopping you from having a smart home 2021 😉To the gadget
