Xiaomi, is the gateway, Homekit and other questions about this messy product line

Cupertino, April 14, 2020

I wanted to add a few HomeKit things and saw that Xiaomi is cheap. I have a vacuum (Roborock Vacuum v1 or Mi Vacuum v1) and a Mi eScooter. Good products. But as my title is a bit vague, so is Xiaomi / Aquara / Mi.

This is the thing:

* I want a Mi gateway, which supports HomeKit (not through HomeBridge), there are two versions of bridge / gateway as I read on the internet.
* There are also European and Chinese models. Does it matter?
* I also read that the application must be in Europe for it to work. Can I change that? The first time I set up my vacuum, I had to be in mainland China or Singapore. I associated the vacuum with a new router, now it works a little better. Will I have problems?
* What accessories work with this gateway / HomeKit / not at all. There is a Mi brand and an Aqaura.
* I forgot something? Are you missing something? Is it me or is it so complicated?

You love to hear your answer and to advise you! 🙂
