The differences are:

1. Battery Life

Alfawise smart home products consume less power and have a battery life of more than 5 years. You never have to worry about charging.

Aqara's smart home products only have 2-year battery life.  

2. Smart Connection

All of Alfawise Z1 smart home products can connect with Tuya's smart home products by Tuya APP.

But Aqara can be connected with all Xiaomi's smart products.  

3. Price

The price of the Alfawise smart home kits is $69.99. If you pay a deposit of $5 before Feb.17th, you can buy it for only $59.99.

The same 4 products, Aqara is more expensive. You can buy it for $66.96, and don't forget that there is an extra converter.


Anyway, they're all great products. 

If you have a lot of Xiaomi products at home, or if you are used to using HomeKit, I suggest you buy Aqara smart home kit.

If you want to spend less money and often use Amazon Alexa or Google Home, then Alfawise Z1 is definitely your best choice.
