In October we reported on a new feature for the Aqara Presence Sensor FP2 that would enable sleep monitoring. At the time it seemed that only Chinese FP2 models and servers offered this new option, but it is now starting to be rolled out internationally, to all consumers, with firmware V1.2.3_0002.0059. If you're not familiar with the FP2, it acts as a occupancy sensor that can detect the presence of people even when they are standing still. This sets it apart from conventional motion sensors that typically rely on detecting motion. Furthermore, the FP2's detection capabilities are divided into up to thirty zones, which function as individual occupancy sensors for specific areas or zones, demonstrating the device's remarkable versatility. You can check out our review of the FP2 HERE, or watch our overview video below; Aqara also stated that more new features will be rolled out in the coming months; The FP2 sensor's sleep monitoring mode is designed for single-person use and tracks data such as sleep duration, sleep stages, heart rate, and breathing rate. The sensor's sleep monitoring function helps users monitor and analyze sleep status, and the real-time heart rate and respiratory rate data can provide essential insights for elderly care. Additionally, the FP2 sensor can now be used to trigger automations based on the user's sleep status, for example to trigger the custom go to bed or wake up scene. Being a non-wearable device, the FP2 sensor eliminates the inconvenience of wearing a sleep tracker all night. AI Person Detection is a new feature that optimizes the zone detection functionality of the FP2 sensor. On-device AI distinguishes between human and other motion events, which can be caused by robot vacuum cleaners, pets and even remote-controlled toy cars. This feature is designed to improve zone detection accuracy and can be activated on Aqara Home (via Device Settings – AI Person Detection) after it becomes available. People Counting is a new feature that enhances the zone detection functionality of the FP2 sensor. It provides real-time headcount and enrollment data, and more data types will become available in the future. Once this feature is available, it can be activated on Aqara Home (via Device Settings – Advanced Features). When the first of these features rolled out in China, it was listed as free for users, although it was also indicated that this feature would likely become a paid feature at some point in the future. This is still the case with the international FP2 rollout, but the company will likely consider this a premium feature at some point.
