Configuration

Aqara products have very basic and simple features, but there are a few possibilities. A smart plug can e.g. be selected as a heating unit. If placed in the same room as a temperature sensor, these will communicate to regulate the temperature in the room. If you select “lighting” and place it in the same room as a motion sensor, it can turn on and off automatically based on movement in the room.
