Aqara Releases New M3 Hub With Thread Support

Aqara has announced the release of its new M3 Hub with Thread support.

As the latest evolution in Aqara's lineup of smart home control centers, the M3 supports multiple protocols including Thread, Zigbee, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and infrared (IR), making it a comprehensive hub for smart home management. It connects and manages the lineup of classic Aqara Zigbee devices, serving as a Matter bridge. Thanks to the 360° IR blaster, the new hub optimizes control of IR-enabled devices by syncing their status directly with Aqara Home whenever an IR remote is utilized. Moreover, the M3 integrates the latest Aqara Thread devices as well as select Matter-compatible devices from third-party brands to Aqara Home. This means that users can connect and manage devices from different brands and ecosystems within the Aqara Home app to ensure maximum flexibility and compatibility.

"Aqara is committed to creating the ultimate smart home experience that continuously adapts to users' evolving needs," said Cathy You, Aqara Senior Vice President of Global Business and Strategy. "The Hub M3's edge computing capabilities will provide users with an added layer of stability and safety, while its Matter compatibility will significantly enhance interoperability and choice for users."

Other enhancements of the Hub M3 include:
● Matter bridge for infrared AC units: It can integrate an infrared-compatible air conditioning unit or air-to-air heat pump to Matter, allowing for AC control and automation via Matter-enabled platforms5.
● Seamless group migration: Users can easily migrate bridged device from older Aqara hubs to the M3, ensuring continuity of Aqara Home settings and automations without the need to reconfigure each device.
● Enhanced internet connectivity: The M3 features dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4GHz/5GHz) with WPA3 security as well as a PoE-enabled port, offering enhanced stability and flexibility.
● Powerful speaker: The 95dB speaker built-in can be used for home security alerts and custom announcements.
