Based on photos obtained by HomeKit News, Aqara products have made their official debut into Apple Stores throughout China alongside. The Aqara Hub and accessories sit next to a number of other brands that offer HomeKit support.
The range of Aqara products has been around a fair bit now. Then the release of the Aqara Hub that supports HomeKit, they are starting to become a hot HomeKit brand due to the low price.
The phone taken at the Shanghai Apple Store by HomeKitNews, you can see a selection of Aqara’s product line that works with Apple HomeKit. While this might seem like good news for both Aqara and HomKit enthusiasts in China. Customers elsewhere are left with buying “international versions via Aliexpress or other marketplaces.
Aqara US, EU, UK Release?
As mentioned above, international buyers need to source Aqara products via a marketplace like Aliexpress and need to then use a socket adapter. So its only natural that some buyers are eagerly awaiting the international launch of the Aqara Hub and HomeKit products.
HomeKitNews reported that the Aqara products would be listed on Amazon.com Monday, March 11th. But this date has come and gone with no sight of them.
We reached out to the Aqara PR team last week and asked about the international launch and was told “The release date for UK and EU products is still not known”
So in short, its anyone’s guess when the international version of the HomeKit enabled Aqara Hub will be launched.
