Xiaomi/Honeywell smoke detector in EU, with Mijia hub


Aug 30, 2021
Hi everyone.

I have a Mijia hub that I bought in Norway and a few Xiaomi/Honeywell smoke detectors from China that I got on ebay.

I understand that these are not compatible since they are made for different regions, but I learned that too late so now I have these smoke detectors that I can't use in the app.

Is there any workaround to get them working with the app? I have Xiaomi vacuum cleaners and temperature/ humidity sensors already in the app, and I do not want to sacrifice them for the smoke detectors to work. I assume that is what would happen if I changed the server to China instead of Norway.

This is the hub I have:

This is the smoke detector:

Any suggestions?

Yes, you can use. But before, cancel the official app.

Ciao Andrea

I have also the same problem.

I have the EU Control Hub and 4 pieces of Honeywell Smoke detetors (obviously chinese version). Now when I chhange the region of the App to Chinese, I cannot connect the Control Hub, but I see the smoke detectors. Otherway aroung, If I chnge to italian region I see the Hub but not the dectors.

So, I gave a try to the App you suggested and it works partially. I see both devices, but when I try to connect the smoke detectors, I cannot choose the Hub because is not compatible.

Do you have an Idea?
