Welcome to In-Tech. Today we’ll show you how to turn your home into a smart home, even if you’re on a budget.

Aqara Hub is a control center for the entire smart home. Connecting via the Zigbee protocol, Aqara accessories will still work efficiently, even if your home network is unstable or disconnected. Aqara’s vision is to provide customers with all-inclusive smart home products and solutions that are attractively designed, inexpensive, and easy to use. The name “Aqara” originated from the Latin words “acutulus” (smart) and “ara”(home).

You can control Aqara accessories with Siri on your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or HomePod. Just say “Siri, I’m home”, and the lights will automatically turn on for you. There is a wide range of accessories you can connect to your Aqara Hub.

With the motion sensor in use, lights are on when the room becomes occupied; lights are off while nobody is home. When motion is detected in the evening, the Hub light automatically turns on. Connecting with the Wireless Mini Switch enables you to have a Smart doorbell and a personalized ringtone. With a press of the Wireless Mini Switch, the Hub plays your preferred ringtone. By pairing it with a door and window sensor, you can receive a reminder to turn on security for your home. With the Door and Window Sensor, you can turn on alarm mode when you l eave the house, or when you are asleep. If a door or window becomes unlocked, the Hub will sound an alarm and direct notification to your phone. With the smart plug, plus a temperature and humidity sensor, you can adjust and control the temperature and humidity inside your home to create your very own comfort zone. With the water leak sensor, when a leak is detected, the Aqara hub will sound an alarm to alert you and also send notifications to your smartphone.
