Looking for an affordable HomeKit camera? Then you can save twice.
Xiaomi offers the Aqara G2H camera, which is quite affordable and compatible with HomeKit. Currently the model is available for about 60 Euro. But you actually save twice as much: The camera is also a Zigbee Hub, which operates according to the 3.0 standard.
This means that you can register all sensors and switches that are available for the Aqara system directly on the camera, saving you another device that needs to be configured and requires power. Great: The camera uses the Zigbee 3.0 standard, which means much greater range and more devices supported at the same time. In principle the ideal device to start your home automation.
Currently the camera is available at Aliexpress. You can import it, an appropriate adapter for the power supply is included. Since HomeKit is a global standard, it should work as well outside China – but we cannot guarantee it. If you don’t want to take a risk, wait until the official version for your country is released.
