The manufacturer of various smart home devices, Aqara, introduced two new sensors at CES 2022 – with the help of one, users will be able to learn about movement in a room or house, and the second will notify when doors or windows are opened. Both new items should be released in the second half of 2022.
The manufacturer claims that the new devices will be compatible with various smart home control systems, including HomeKit. They must also support Thread technology. The exact timing of the release of new products and their price is still unknown.
Along with the announcement of new sensors, Aqara shared its other plans. In particular, representatives of the company said that this year some devices will receive a special update that will add support for the Matter standard. Among the first, this update will be available to owners of Aqara M2 and Aqara M1S hubs.
When exactly Aqara plans to start distributing the update is currently unknown. It was originally supposed to come out last year. However, due to the pandemic, the release of the update was delayed.
