The simple fact is that Xiaomi took a couple year of development and achieved to be one of the largest smart home solution provider in the world, they build smart home products literally cover every scenario a normal user wants. And with the help of third-party libraries normally named Homebridge-Mi/Xiaomi-XXX, a programmer could easily bridge these products to iOS HomeKit platform, for better usability and easier management.

  • Covers every aspect of smart home scenario
  • Mostly programmable (via third-party libraries)
  • iOS HomeKit-compatible (after programming)


  • Most products are available only in China Mainland
