Aqara Water Leak Sensor

Aqara Water Leak Sensor is an IP67 dustproof and waterproof sensor that can detect when an area comes into contact with water and then trigger some home automation.

My use case is not to trigger some automation but to let me know when the drainage system under my sink is overflowing with soap lather. Often, this is due to using too much soap when washing the dishes.

Aqara Smart Door Lock D200i Review

Thanks to Souky, I managed to be one of the first customers in Singapore to install the Aqara D200i Smart Door Lock. Not to be confused with the D200, which is sold only in China, the D200i is the global/international version of the D200.

Besides being able to add to the Southeast Asia region in the Aqara app, The other significant difference is that the D200i supports remote unlocking.

Aqara Presence Sensor FP2 Review

The much awaited Aqara Presence Sensor FP2 has finally launched in Singapore on 20th April 2023. It retails for S$159 and you can get it from Souky store on Lazada or Shopee.

Unlike the typical motion sensors that use Passive Infrared (PIR) Sensors, presence sensors use 60 GHz mmWave radar sensors to detect “presence” instead of “motion.” Because of this, it can detect multiple people in a room. It can also tell the difference between a person in a room that is not moving and no one in it. This is something that motion sensors could never differentiate.

igloohome Smart PadLock 2 Review

igloohome Smart PadLock 2 is the successor to the igloohome Smart PadLock which was launched three years ago. The changes are mostly on the hardware side.

One of the major differences is using a rechargeable lithium battery which is chargeable via the USB-C port. If the Padlock 2 battery is flat, you can charge it using a power bank instead of a 9V alkaline battery.

Aqara Smart Wall Switch H1 EU (With Neutral)

Aqara Smart Wall Switch H1 EU (With Neutral) is the third smart wall switch that I am evaluating. The first is MCO Touch Panel while the second is Sonoff T2UK Wi-Fi Smart Wall Switch.

There is nothing wrong with my Sonoff smart wall switch that makes me want to switch to Aqara smart wall switch. I am getting just one Aqara smart wall switch to let Li Xiang feel the difference between touch and tactile-based wall switches so that we have more choices for our new house.
