The Xiaomi Smart Home 5 in 1 kit (also called smart home security kit) contains a gateway that is essential for communicating the devices with the Mi Home application available for iOS or Android smartphones or tablets as well as the following home automation devices:
- A WiFi / Zigbee gateway
- A motion detector
- A temperature and humidity sensor
- A door or window opening detector
- A wireless smart switch
This kit is ideal to start in home automation. It is very well supported by the main open source home automation servers (Jeedom, Domoticz, Home Assistant …). Under Jeedom, the installation of a paid plugin is necessary. The 5-in-1 kit is better suited to the European market because it does not integrate the socket ordered to the Chinese standard.
Follow this tutorial to install the gateway and configure the devices on the mobile app. This configuration is necessary before you can include the accessories on a home automation server.
