A new Aqara Hub has appeared in the Mi Home app. The E1 model comes in the form of a USB stick and is HomeKit capable.
Aqara E1 USB Hub comes with HomeKit
And Aqara again. After I pointed out the new wireless H1 light switch this morning, my colleagues from HomeKitNews discovered a new USB hub from Aqara in the Mi Home app.
The E1 USB Hub from Aqara has a normal USB-A connection and can therefore be connected very flexibly to many devices. The setup process also shows that the new hub will work with HomeKit and so will display the connected devices there.
Currently you can only find the E1 Hub if you switch the Mi Home app to the Chinese server. It is not yet clear whether and when the hub will also be launched on the German market. Aqara has recently been bringing more and more products to us here too, so it is at least not unlikely.
