The Gateway functions as a central hub to connect devices. Let’s look at what this gateway does and why you would need one. This small unit has a ring of multicolored LED lights and a built-in speaker. Both serving various functions, there’s a small button on top of the device. The Gateway can be plugged in directly into a wall socket.

Xiaomi Mi Home Gateway can pair up to 30 devices and control them.

 

 

Many automation rules can be set up as “local rules”. This means these rules will still run even when the internet is down.

The Xiaomi Gateway can be added to the Xiaomi Mi Home app, with a simple “add device” task.

In the Devices tab, you will find a list of all the connected devices to this gateway. While in the bottom, you can find a button to pair new subdevices with the gateway.

 

 

 

 

While with only one gateway you can control all devices in your home. Therefore My advice, depending on the space of your house, is to get one 10 meters far away from the router. Also add another one 10 meters away from the first gateway. While this will be a perfect solution to not overcrowd only one gateway.
