Thanks to Prime Day, I impulse bought a bunch of Aqara (a.k.a. Xiaomi) hardware thinking it would all work in Home Assistant. Right out of the gate, I am unable to get the Aqara(Xiaomi) integration on Home Assistant 116.4 to detect my hub, even after setting up a static IP.
I am unsure whether I simply have an unsupported hub or perhaps I’ missed a step somewhere along the way. Could anyone confirm whether the hub I am using works in their environment? FWIW, I was able to not only set up the hub in Homekit, but was also able to upgrade the hub’s firmware using the Aqara app.
Additionally, I am confused about which iOS app I should be using. The Integration Docs call the app Mi-Home but there’s also an Aqara app available in the US region. From what I can tell, they are very similar in functionality. Very confusing.
