Not only Mijia but also Home Kit Aqara brings different user experiences to users

It is not difficult to find that intelligent hardware items such as intelligent speakers, floor-sweeping robots, and air purifiers have entered thousands of households, and relying on these intelligent items, more users have access to the smart home ecosystem and have a strong interest. Finally, configure a set of intelligent hardware ecosystem of your own. Nowadays, smart home ecosystems such as Mijia ecosystem, HUAWEI HiLink ecosystem, Ali Intelligence, HomeKit and other smart home ecosystems have ushered in vigorous development, while many products of Aqara can access Mijia and HomeKit, at the same time on the two smart home ecological platforms, bringing different user experiences.

What are Mijia and HomeKit?

First of all, House Secret would like to introduce MijiaApp,MijiaApp, which is based on Xiaomi ecological chain system, and is the control center and e-commerce platform of Xiaomi ecological chain products. It integrates device control, e-commerce marketing, crowdfunding platform and scene sharing. It is mainly based on intelligent hardware, covering hardware and home service products.

MijiaAPP not only connects eco-chain companies under Mijia to achieve interconnection with all Xiaomi and eco-chain smart products, but also connects to open access third-party products, committed to building a complete ecological closed loop from intelligent product access, crowdfunding incubation, e-commerce access, to reaching users, control and sharing.

According to the official introduction, MijiaApp has connected more than 50 million online devices, installed more than 50 million users, and has more than 5 million daily active users, and has reached cooperation with nearly 100 smart hardware companies represented by Aqara, including Xiaomi ecological chain, to achieve interconnection between devices. And Xiaomi is Xiaomi's boutique living e-commerce platform, Aqara a number of smart home hardware products are sold on the Xiaomi platform.

HomeKit is the smart home platform launched by Apple in 2014. Apple itself does not produce new products with HomeKit, but authorizes third-party manufacturers to produce devices that meet Apple's compatible and security standards. Products using HomeKit software must meet Apple's compatibility and encryption standards, which enable it to support HomeKit products made by other manufacturers, while the latter can prevent hackers from taking over computer systems or stealing user information.

Therefore, relying on Apple's high standards, it is difficult for many companies to obtain HomeKit certification, and Aqara's smart hardware products have an unparalleled advantage in HomeKit in terms of quantity and price. At the same time, HomeKit has an advantage in terms of security over other smart home ecosystems that need to operate in the cloud. The transmission of information controlled by its devices is peer-to-peer, and no data will be stored in the cloud. In addition, the data generated by HomeKit devices will not be stored in the cloud and there is no way to share, but on users' iOS devices, which can more effectively ensure data security.

Why many Aqara products can be connected to multiple platforms.

According to officials, Aqara Co-founder entered the smart home field in 2014, focusing on the research and development of Xiaomi smart home products, and released the first product "Xiaomi smart home" package in 2015. And launched the "whole house intelligence" concept of its own brand Aqara in 2016. Aqara comes from the Latin word acutula, which means smart, and ARA means to go home. The combination of Aqara means that the family is becoming more and more intelligent. Since its birth, Aqara is committed to building a more intelligent life for users through a series of smart home product technologies and service provider models.

Aqara's products include temperature, humidity, doors and windows, human body, flooding, smoke, gas, lighting and sleep sensors, as well as smart switches, sockets, curtain motors, air conditioning controllers, dimmers, door locks and other intelligent controllers, covering a single device and home automation system. At the same time, Aqara's products can be connected to many platforms such as Apple HomeKit, XiaomiMijia, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and so on. For domestic users, Mijia and HomeKit are more familiar and easier to use.

Up to now, a number of Aqara products are stationed in Apple Store,40 and connected to Apple HomeKit, which is the most compatible brand of Apple HomeKit products among domestic smart home enterprises. Its hardware uses HomeKit encryption and authentication technology for end-to-end transmission to ensure that accessory data is not exposed in the cloud and easily breached by hackers, and Apple does not collect accessory data to ensure user privacy and security.

In this way, with HomeKit and Aqara smart home products, users can use Apple product devices to control home labeled "Works with Apple HomeKit" (Apple HomeKit)-compatible Aqara accessories). These accessories include Aqara smart door locks N100, Aqara gateways, Aqara door and window sensors, Aqara temperature and humidity sensors, Aqara body sensors, Aqara flooding sensors, Aqara wireless switches, Aqara wall switches, and Aqara LED light bulbs, among other products, which can be used to set up automated scenes in Apple's "home" App. For example, you can create a "good night" scene where just say "good night" to Siri and all the lights in your home will be turned off. Or set up a motion sensor to get up in the middle of the night to turn on the lights automatically.

The end.

Therefore, our Aqara house secret test AI division can build two different smart home ecosystems through Aqara smart home products, and use and improve their own smart home ecosystem according to their own preferences, and establish the whole house intelligence that belongs to the house secret Aqara test AI division.
