Xiaomi's Mi Smart Home Kit is the easiest way to get started with home automation. It's compatible with iOS and Android smartphones and compatible with other Xiaomi smart home products.
Once plugged in, you need to use the Mi Home app to set it up. All of Xiaomi's products are very straightforward to set up, and the Mi Smart Home gateway is no different. Once you plug the gateway into the socket ensure your phone is connected to your Wi-Fi network and sign in to your Mi account in the Mi Home app. Then simply press down on the power button located at the top of the gateway for three seconds, and the app will automatically detect the new device. If the gateway emits a solid blue light, you've managed to pair it successfully with the Mi Home app.
Xiaomi's motion sensor is amazing. At 3cm tall, it's tiny, but it does a great job of detecting motion in its immediate vicinity — up to 1.5 meters. You can pair it with the gateway by resetting the device (via a SIM card ejector tool in the pinhole) and connecting it to Mi Home. Once it's paired, you can configure a series of actions for the sensor, such as turning on the lights, Xiaomi's air purifier, or control any of the manufacturer's connected products.
You have the ability to create custom scenes, and even set a specific time for an event to run. For instance, you can configure the motion sensor to turn on the lights if it detects activity after 6 p.m., or set up a scene to turn off the lights once you walk past the sensor in the morning. There's also the option to send a notification to your phone each time the sensor is triggered.
