I think you are right. Everybody does it so that is the way.
It could be a long wait for all those sensors to be made available on the European servers...
Which device are you using as a Bluetooth BLE gateway? Have you tried the Aqara cube?
Many thanks again!
Very good, thank you! I've just bought the Mi hub and some sensors.
I am on the Germany server now because that is the recommended one in the UK.
Totally surprised the the Aqara temp and humidity sensor are incompatible with the Mi hub at least at the moment on this server.
But there you go...
