Aqara to Introduce New Line of Smart Devices With Support for Apple HomeKit Over Thread

Aqara has announced that it will introduce a new line of smart devices that based on Thread. To start, the company will release new versions of its Door and Window Sensor and Motion Sensor in the second half of 2022.

Aqara has always offered a series of innovative, home automation products that work with major third-party ecosystems including Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa and Google Home. As the industry continues to evolve toward a unified IoT standard, Aqara will continue to support smart home interoperability.

In September, Aqara announced commitment to the new Matter industry standard for smart home devices. Aqara plans to bring Matter support to existing Zigbee-based products by pushing an over-the-air (OTA) update to the Aqara hubs, the M2 and the M1S.

The software update will expose the Aqara child devices to Matter, allowing them to connect with other Matter-compatible third-party devices. This approach assures a seamless interaction between the two protocols, and Aqara users will be able to keep their existing Zigbee devices while accessing the benefits of Matter.

The new Thread-based product lineup enables IoT devices to connect natively to Matter. It also integrates Bluetooth Low Energy for a better connection and operating experience.

Aqara is showcasing some of its latest Thread-based sensors at the NXP demo booth during CES 2022. You can check out Aqara's current line of HomeKit compatible devices here.
