I use a lot of Aqara/Xiaomi devices with my Homey. Since Homey cannot update firmware of devices, I was wondering if it would be good to connect some devices once-in-a-while to a Aqara Hub (I own a G2 Cam that acts as a hub too) to update firmware.
Do any of you know which Aqara/Xiaomi devices use firmware? I use buttons, motion sensors, temperature sensors, vibration sensors, cube, double relay, etc…
If I know for sure a device does not have updatable firmware, there’s no need to connect them to the hub as well.
If there’s a changelog somewhere of firmware for devices of these brands, that would be even better. But haven’t been able to find such… ;(
Here is a list of what we know so far:
(with thanks to @robertklep)
CAN be updated:
- Aqara motion sensor
- Aqara vibration sensor
- Aqara water sensor
- Aqara wireless switch double
- Aqara/Xiaomi cube
- Xiaomi light sensor
CANNOT be updated:
- Aqara occupancy sensor
- Aqara door and window sensor
- Aqara temperature/humidity/pressure sensor
- Aqara wireless switch
- Xiaomi illumination sensor
Please let me know if the above is incorrect of if you have any additions.
For to be exact, we might have to need modelnumbers; but let’s see if people are interested in such a list her.
