According to a tip received by HomeKitNews, it looks like Aqara the smart home company will release a smoke detector along with a VOC Sensor soon.
On Monday, Aqara announced the new HomeKit hub – the M2 – alongside several switches and sensors with ZigBee 3. compatibility. While the Smart smoke detector and VOC sensors did not include in this announcement, the source has found references to them.
One of the company, Mijia, which is under the Xiaomi umbrella, released a HomeKit smoke detector in collaboration with Honeywell. So its not surprising that Aqara would release a smart smoke detector under its own name.
Very little is known about the 2 new Aqara devices apart from they will be low-powered products that will work on the Zigbee protocol. While its a safe bet they may include HomeKit support, nothing is certain at this stage.
