Xiaomi refreshed all its sensors operating in the Zigbee standard. New devices appear under the Aqara brand. One of them is the temperature sensor - Xiaomi Aqara Temperature Humidity Sensor,has one new functionality, is it worth changing the old sensor to a new one?
In a series of new products Aqara did not follow the previous Xiaomi sensors, the devices have been redesigned and have a square shape. Despite the creation of a more bent sensor, the dimensions and weight are virtually the same as the round predecessor. In the set, we also get a double-sided tape for sticking the sensor. The device is powered by a CR2032 battery, it works correctly in the temperature range from -20 to + 60 degrees Celsius. The measurement accuracy in the case of temperature is + -0.3 degrees, humidity + -3%. New in the new Aqara product is a barometer, Xiaomi declares its accuracy at + -120Pa, and the scope of 30-110KP's work.
Xiaomi Aqara Temperature Humidity We pair in the MiHome application, go to the gate, then add the device and choose a square temperature sensor. Exactly the same as with other devices, no problems in the evaporation process. The sensor management interface looks similar to that of the predecessor, the interface has been slightly reduced so that the barometer can be accommodated. Besides, everything looks the same.
The new Xiaomi temperature sensor shows the results virtually the same as presented by the old, "round" sensor, the difference they receive is in the order of + -0.1 degree when measuring temperature, with humidity also
Xiaomi Aqara Temperature Humidity Sensor it works just as well as its predecessor. The only difference between them is the barometer, the measurement results are the same. If you have an old sensor and you do not need another one, you can wait with the purchase, but if you want to expand your smart system, the new Xiaomi temperature sensor will be a better choice. Due to the minimally extended functionality and .. lower price, the new costs 9,5 $ and for the old model we have to pay over 12 $. A few days ago, Xiaomi presented his air conditioning, so far it is not on sale. I'd like to create scenes between air conditioning and temperature sensors.
