I have some Xiaomi devices and sensors, but the automations that are possible are pretty dull. Woohoo I can turn a light on when a door opens.
Unfortunately, Xiaomi doesn't play well with others.. you can't use Mi Home as a service in Home Assistant, SmartThings, or IFTTT.
What this means is that I can't string together my devices.. for example, when the door is closed and the temperature is above XX%, turn on the air conditioner… because my Sensibo and Mi Home can't talk to each other.
I have seen some chatter that people use 3rd party hubs like Samsung SmartThings.. this means you can purchase sensors from Xiaomi or Ikea and it all goes through the Samsung hub. Is this a viable solution?
Or have I just invested in the wrong hub? Perhaps I could move to an Ikea service for a similar level of value?
