I just came back from picking up 7 of the "new" T1 devices from my local Aqara store. They were announced summer last year, but took about 1 year before they actually came out. They are all Zigbee 3.0. I've not tested them much yet and as such I'll add info as I do test them. To the touch they feel exactly like the old models, no difference at all really. Aside from them being ZB3.0 devices the big difference is price (here in China basically double the price compared to the old models).
Here are some photos of the new devices:
The new T1 Cube (MFKZQ11LM) in comparison to the old one(MFKZQ01LM):
It pairs fast and easy, but I do see that the traffic sent is rather different, the driver will need some serious updates.
The New T1 Water Leak sensor (SJCGQ12LM) in comparison to the old one(SJCGQ11LM):
Paired quickly, but doesn't send anything, probably need to bind to the clusters first. Driver changes needed.
T1 Temperature, Humidity and Pressure sensor (WSDCGQ12LM) compared to the old one(WSDCGQ11LM):
Paris quickly, but like the others, nothing except the model and manufacturer name is being sent. Probably just need to bind to the right cluster.
T1 Aqara Button (WXKG13LM) compared to the old version (WXKG12LM):
Pairs and seems to work (though initially detected as an Aqara Water Leak Sensor), no shake-event sent. Once I switched to my button driver single, double and triple click as well as held works.
T1 Aqara Motion Sensor (RTCGQ12LM) compared to the old one (RTCGQ11LM):
Pairs quickly but probably need some bind commands.
T1 Aqara Contact Sensor (MCCGQ12LM) compared to the old model (MCCGQ11LM):
The T1 Aqara Contact Sensor pairs and is detected as my Generic Zigbee Contact sensor, but doesn't work out of the box. Probably just need bind here as well.
Last but not least, an Aqara T1 relay (DLKZMK11LM) I had no idea was going to be released:
I have not connected and tested this device, that is left for another day.
Working drivers for all of these will be released when I find the time. Since I don't think anyone outside of China have these yet I don't think there is much of a hurry anyway
Hope you all enjoyed the little introduction to these devices. Let me know what you think! I will now connect them and see how they behave long term. I will also monitor their traffic with Wireshark to see if they truly are "good" devices.
