    A$50 would have been a good price.. This seems quite the same price you would pay for components individually except you don't get to choose.

    •  

      It's cheaper if you look at regular price. You get 2 sensor and plug and 1 switch and the gateway. The average price for sensor/plug is $10ea then gateway is around $18 and switch is around $7.

      •  

        Fair enough. I was referring to offer pricing though. I paid $25 for gateway and $5 for the button. As for reminder $30 i believe you can grab 3 sensors. I paid $7 (from memory) for the human sensor.

        •  

          I'm waiting on a special for the human body sensors too.

          I wonder how much the battery cost will be though when all the batteries die.

    Still waiting for last one to arrive ….

    can you team 2 gateways?

    I bought more components (for Mi Smart Home) from this mob and paid for Expedited Shipping (5-8 days). After 3 weeks. Still showing as Processed through China.

    Opened a ticket but then they closed the ticket saying that item should be delivered in the next 28 days.

      Really! Crap i'm in the same boat. Their tracking code doesn't work.

    •  

      You should PM their rep.

      Worth mentioning that express shipping doesn't include processing.

      hi mate, do you mind pm the order number? so i can check this for you. some order might delayed due to OOS, that's why i told user contact me to check order status when order not send out in 3 business day.

  • +8 votes

    Shipping takes way longer than promised from these noobs, and for that reason, I'm out.

    •  

      due to shopping season every place get too many orders, sometimes order delayed is inevitable. all i can do is trying help you figure out the order status and solve some problem in my control.

      I can second this. I have bought 52 items from gearbest up to date and all of those were delivered within 4 weeks and 90% of them within 3 weeks. LiTB always takes more than 6 weeks to deliver plus long processing time.

      • -5 votes

        if you want, i can find you more delayed example on OZB from gearbest, and even never arrive or send out. so i don't think this worth to discuss

          How does that make you feel better about a commitment which you do on website and do not fulfill in a timely manner.

          You are showing that's someone is in mud when you are told that there is bird shit on your face.

          Can you may be rephrase your reply to dealspider.

        • -5 votes

          @Curiouscat: 1. i'm not the god, can't control any thing on my site, problem always happened, don't have any site or store can 100% sure they can send out order without any delayed or problem. all i can do is try my best to help user figure out what happened and try to solve it.
          2. so you think gearbest never delayed or don't have the situation on my comment above? i'm just telling the all truth , oxymoron's word shows gearbest is all clean when there is bird shit on my face.
          3. i have asked dealspider pm me the order number to check order status, if you have better way, feel free to let me know.

          @MiniInTheBox:
          I was considering buying this but after seeing replies from the rep, I have decided not to.

          I know you think you're doing your best, but antagonising your customers, claiming things in your store are not in your control and unprovoked attacks on your competition isn't the best business practice.

          I'm not attacking you or your business, just letting you know this is how you are coming across when I'm reading this post.

        •  

          @ShrewdOrJustTight: amazing. Can't be more clear.

        •  

          @MiniInTheBox:

          Hi Mate,

          Take it easy, regarding your replies

          Point 1.Whatever you said put this as a disclaimer on the website and in terms and conditions to let customers know once you receive the money things can go beyond the control until then you will promise priority line delivery.

          Point 2. Nah mate, you brought up Gearbest I didn't, so the joke is on you.You could have also mentioned banggood, geek buying etc etc which your limited business acumen didn't permit.

          Point 3.Keep calm, you just lost a few customers with your acrimonious replies. Why not start a cash on delivery business everyone will be happy to pay 25% more when goods reach home, for dealspider he was under assumption that if he pays more to get delivery faster, you guys will be able to do deliver goods faster.

          Friendly suggestion which is applicable for any business in Andromeda galaxy which sells goods, end customer experience is the determining factor whether you will survive or perish.

          All good, bought some stuff this morning from your site.

          All of us do get our share of stressful days.

          If you are doing the best to your ability with honesty and good intentions, things will only improve, I am saying to myself whilst I am typing this.

        Really? I've had tons of issues form gearbest, I tend to avoid them on most purchases now unless there is a big dif in price

    •  

      yup i have only ever purchased 2 things from LITB and both took 6 weeks. gearbest is 3-4 weeks on most items, but i have had some arrive in 1-2

    •  

      some items come via consolidated shipping rather than indivual items from china post …. that’s why shipping is so cheap, with consolidated they wait for the container to be full before sending to australia and then it’s express …. noticed it with my xiaomi smart lamp … we love cheap postage but rarely pay for EMS door to door.

      speed costs money …. how fast do you want to go ?

  •  

    Has anyone bought this and regretted it?
    I can't decide if i want or need this.

      Isn't that the OZB motto, "Buy now, figure what the hell it is and how I use it later"

    •  

      I have one. Integrated with Home Assistant on Raspberry Pi3. Everything works as expected. Have purchased quite a few other sensors. No regrets so far, with the exception of the power sockets. They seem to hit the on/off switch due to being upside down (Chinese)

    •  

      it’s one of the cheaper ways to play and get into home automation and deciding if you really need it or not …. other systems cost a lot more.

  •  

    Any way I can make this look like an AUD $ transaction for the AMEX Paypal 20% payback scheme?

    Can this be integrated with Google Home Assistant ?

    •  

      that is something i would like to know also.

    •  

      I have a RaspberryPi but I just bought a Google Home Assistant. I am yet figureout what type of home automation I can do with Google HA. Just don't want to have another device (Pi3b) plugged in all the time and scanning devices if Google can do the job.

      • +1 vote

        If you want to use Google home with xiaomi sensors then you need home assistant and xiaomi gateway. I think Google home works with some xiaomi stuff directly eg. Yeelight bulbs.

        •  

          When you say Home Assistant are you referring to HomeAssistant installed on RaspberryPi or on some computer??

          If that's the case, then it'll be too many devices to plug in. (Google HA, HA on RaspberryPi, Xiaomi Gateway, Xiaomi Sensor)

          Shouldn't there be a simpler way to achieve this?

        •  

          @rmamila: yes don't use Google home with xiaomi. They are different systems. They are not meant to work together. Google home doesn't connect directly to zigbee devices. Xiaomi are creating their own eco system and don't have retailers outside of Asia. We are not the intended customers (yet?).

          AFAIK Home assistant can be installed on anything on the same network. I have xiaomi hub etc but my rasp pi hasn't arrived yet.

        i have voice integrated home automation …. 10 year old son ….. tell him what i want done or no pocket money….. coverage is a bit of issue when he’s wearing headphones and on you tube…… next update / birthday will include “clean your room” functions.

    Has anyone integrated this with IFTTT?

    Shows as A$60.17. Also can't see any clear hint on how to integrate with Google Assistant/Home.

    I bought the gateway exactly a week ago from this online store. So far I have received 16 emails from them in the week since I joined and paid for the item. I have tried (unsuccessfully) to unsubscribe from their newsletter as they keep spamming me. 16 emails in a week and the inability to unsubscribe from the spam makes me not want to shop @ LightInTheBox

      hi please check here might help you avoid these email:
      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/313873

      or pm me your email and i will remove it from email list. apologize for all these trouble.

    •  

      Had the same issue with these guys years ago. Had to contact support. Seems like they don't care enough to fix the issue. I won't be buying more stuff from them.

    •  

      the ads come from a different mail box than when you actually place an order …. so add the ads to your junk mail profile and problem solved …

      a lot of these deals limited to one per customer are to get you on mailing lists rather than move stock …. if they wanted to move stock they would let you buy as many xiaomi switches as you want at heavily discounted deals ….

    MiniInTheBox, My last Order "Xiaomi 5 in 1 Smart Home Security" Ordered November 27, 2017. Sent December 02, 2017. Arrived 11 December today. Quite Quick

  •  

    So I "registered" a few hours ago and I've had 4 emails sent to me with just pure crap in them, something I never actually signed up to.. no checkbox or anything when using checkout with PayPal..

    I decided not to purchase as the replies here really put me off..

    I've unsubscribed, so hopefully I don't get another.. seriously why push all these emails out with things not even catered to me .. it's pointless and extremely annoying..

    •  

      @MiniInTheBox

      Can you please .. stop emailing me … I've unsubscribed like 4 times already..

  •  

    I'd also like to thank the rep for convincing me to never buy from this company.
    Merry Christmas Buzz.
