    Beware that the Aqara version listed here apparently does not support long press.

    •  

      as opposed to the round button version?

      • +2 votes

        Yep. This can only do single and double click. Round version can do hold.

        In Home Assistant, the round one has the following click types - single, double, long press click, long press release and hold. I don't know the difference between the hold and long press events.

        •  

          hmm it's interesting though, I wonder if this is just a software limitation?

        •  

          Wait, what? I'd never heard of the long press release or hold options, and I've implemented a number of these buttons with multi click setups.

          I'd be keen to know what the proper titles are for those last two modes.

          @randombrick: Thanks for that! I've looked at that page a bunch of time and completely overlooked those.

          @giovannip:

          The official app (mi home) supports long press only for the round (Xiaomi branded) button.
          I don't think it's a software limitation.

          Home Assistant only has access to single and double click also for this model.

          In case anyone is interested, this is what the 3 events look like in Home Assistant:

      Which version does and why do we want it?

      • +1 vote

        I am only looking at this from the perspective of using in Home Assistant. So I could use long press or hold to increase brightness of a lamp for e.g.

        Not sure if the MiHome app can do this when paired to Yeelight.

        •  

          You can certainly configure the V1 switches to do this. However, I've found it easier for others in the household if i program a simple toggle between dim and bright using double click, which both versions can do.

        •  

          @newdad:

          Yep, I am probably going to do that. I personally prefer the square aesthetic of this switch.

          I do have one use case where I need three things - on/off, dim/bright and a night mode. Will revisit that later.

        •  

          @randombrick: I remember seeing in the home assistant forums a person who got triple click working, so that might be worth considering.
          I also prefer the square aesthetics of the V2/aqara switch.
          Another option is the Xiaomi "magic cube", which has about 6 different switch combinations. I have mine set to turn my bedside lamp on/off on flip 90degrees, bright/dim on rotate and shake to toggle the light in the baby's room. Flip 180, double tap etc haven't yet been given a task.

  •  

    dare i ask, what is the switch and what does it do?

  • +1 vote

    the xiaomi round button can do single, double & hold press actions

  •  

    After seeing Xiaomi Door/Window sensor this switch looks big and ugly. :)

    Does this work with a yeelight?

    Bugger it expired when I got to Paypal… price reverted to normal and now says expired.
    Thanks anyway OP!

  •  

    do you need a zigbee/bluetooth hub to use this? As this is wireless im under the impression that it can all just hook back to your router. Is this right?

    •  

      No, it definitely needs the Xiaomi hub. It uses ZigBee (Xiaomi's version) not WiFi.

      •  

        Thanks, so if I want to purchase Xiaomi smart home products and not buy a hub, I need to explicitly ensure they are the wifi versions. Is that right?

        •  

          You may as well buy the hub, it's on sale here cheap enough quite often

        •  

          @xev: I just was trying to avoid another device to clutter the place up. Is there any downside to buying the wifi only versions of them?

  •  

    This seems bigger than the newer switch? I got the newer one for my door (bell) and it's brilliant.

    Coming up expired for me. "The Code you entered has expired." I am logged in.
