At the Xiaomi conference dedicated to IoT (Internet of Things) technology, which includes all the accessories for the home and not connected to the internet, the Chinese company also presented yet another smart lock under the name of Xiaomi Mijia Smart Door Lock .
Although this is not the first lock sold by Xiaomi, the new Mijia Smart Door Lock is actually the first such device under the Mijia branding, which is actually a Xiaomi sub, rather than a satellite company like Aqara or Loock, two relatively independent companies that collaborate with the Asian giant.
If you want to learn more about the Xiaomi ecosystem and the various differences between sub-brands and satellite companies, we recommend reading this post.
Xiaomi Mijia Smart Door Lock: The first Mijia door lock has been announced
Returning to the Mijia lock, this is very similar to the one released by OJJ a few weeks ago, both in appearance and in internal features. In fact we find a drum with C-class technology and support for 3D live fingerprint technology, in practice it recognizes the fingerprint from different angles so that you don't have to place your finger with millimeter precision to open the door.
Other methods of unlocking the lock include a simple password that you can configure yourself, NFC to open your smartphone with the Mijia app (the same one used for the entire Xiaomi ecosystem), via Bluetooth and with other 6 methods not yet revealed. .
Then there are seven sensors that can understand if anyone is trying to force the lock and other 10 technologies hidden from us for obvious security reasons; they do not want to give help to thieves and it seems right.
Xiaomi has kept us to confirm that being a Mijia product, this lock is smarter than the others and is better integrated with the other home automation accessories of the company so, for example, it will be possible to set that the air conditioner turns on when the door is opened. etc.
The Xiaomi Mijia Smart Door Lock will be on sale on December 5, which is also when we will find out the price.
