Xiaomi Wireless Switch Bluetooth Version with triple controls launches
The Xiaomi Wireless Switch Bluetooth Version has been launched in China. The smart home gadget can trigger many Mijia devices as long as it is connected via Bluetooth 5.0 to a compatible mesh gateway device, such as the Xiao AI Speaker or the Xiaomi Multi-Mode Gateway 2. For example, you could use the button to trigger a single light or a whole smart scene; a movie night scene could include closing smart curtains, turning off lights and starting the TV.
Alternatively, you can use the Xiaomi Wireless Switch Bluetooth Version as a doorbell. You can set up three commands using click, double click and extended press controls. In fast mode, the gadget has a 350 ms response time and is expected to last for up to 50,000 presses. The device is powered by a CR2032 battery, providing an average of two years of life.
The switch measures 50 mm (~1.97-in) wide and 13 mm (~0.5-in) thick, with a white casing with anti-yellowing properties. When placed on a table, a silicone pad helps the gadget to stay in place. Or, you could use the accompanying 3M adhesive sticker to attach the device to the underside of a table or the wall. You can currently buy the Xiaomi Wireless Switch Bluetooth Version in China for 39 yuan (~US$5.50). It is unclear whether or when the gadget could be released in other markets.
