Aqara Previews New Devices for 2023


Aqara, a leading provider of smart home products, is set to expand its product portfolio in 2023 with the addition of innovative sensors, smart door locks, video doorbells and LED strips. Committed to providing seamless connected home experiences to millions of global users, Aqara continues to enrich its offerings with latest smart home technologies and new device types.

Video Doorbell G4 is complementary to Aqara’s indoor home cameras, and together these cameras help users to keep an eye on their homes, families and visitors anytime, anywhere. This doorbell allows highly flexible installation as it can be battery-powered or wired for continuous power. It not only supports HomeKit Secure Video and local streaming to Amazon and Google smart displays, but it will also work with Matter after the Matter specification for cameras is ready. The G4 features local, AI-enabled facial recognition, which can trigger different automations depending on the person, and the device also includes both the 7-day free cloud storage and the optional local storage via a microSD card.

Presence Sensor FP2 is a revolutionary addition to the Company’s wide-ranged sensor lineup. Based on the millimeter wave (mmWave) radar technology, the FP2 detects human presence even when the person is sitting still. It enables zone positioning, which allows users to define different zones within a room such as the bed, the dresser, or the sofa area, and the presence in each of these individual zone can trigger different automations for a more customized experience. Other features include multi-person detection, fall-detection and a built-in light sensor.

Smart Lock U100 is the first deadbolt lock from Aqara, offering a secure and convenient home access solution that can be seamlessly integrated into modern smart homes. The U100 lock is one of the few smart locks in the market that is compatible with HomeKit and supports the home key feature in Apple Wallet. Other access authentication options include fingerprints, passwords, Aqara Home app, NFC cards, and mechanical keys. Based on the Zigbee protocol, the U100 supports Matter via a compatible Aqara hub.

LED Strip T1 is a multipurpose RGB CCT lightstrip that is intended to enrich smart lighting experiences for Aqara users. It produces up to 16 million vibrant colors and tunable white light, and is addressable with gradient effects. HomeKit, Alexa and Google Home are supported, and Matter support via a compatible Aqara hub is expected to be added after its launch. The LED strip is Zigbee-based which means lower power consumption as well as less congested home Wi-Fi network, and it also serves as a repeater that enhances the Zigbee network.

These devices from Aqara will become available for purchase in the following months. For more information of these products, please check a demonstrative video here.

Committed to enabling seamless user experiences, Aqara has been working to integrate Matter into its existing and new devices. In 2023 new OTA updates will be pushed to Aqara hubs - beginning from the M2 - so that they can serve as Matter bridges and connect Aqara Zigbee devices to Matter. Moreover, the Company also confirmed a new lineup of Thread-based devices with native Matter support this year, including the Door and Window Sensor P2 and the Motion and Light Sensor P2 which are expected to hit the market in the coming months. As part of the ongoing partnerships with Aqara, both Google and Samsung are featuring these new sensors on respective booths at CES 2023, along with other Aqara devices including the Hub M2 as a Matter bridge.

Major Landowner Federations to Support AMR Against Nordic Mining ASA (NOM) in the Norwegian Supreme Court27.1.2023 12:59:00 EET | Press release

Key landowner federations declare 3rd party intervention in support of Arctic Mineral Resources’ appeal to the Supreme Court in the case against Nordic Rutile AS (NRU), a wholly owned subsidiary of Nordic Mining ASA (NOM). Arnold Rørholt, lawyer and AMR’s Chairman, welcomes the 3rd party intervention in favour of AMR: “The intervention will ensure that the Supreme Court, as opposed to the courts of lower instance, appreciates the principal nature of the case and the Constitutional issues underpinning it, and interprets the Mineral Act in light of these – to the favour of AMR.” “The Western part of the Engebø garnet and rutile province contains around half of the proven reserves in the Engebø deposit, as well as a majority of inferred resources and will support a highly profitable 50 years plus fully underground mining project without a need for deposits on land or in the sea” continues Rørholt. Arctic Mineral Resources (AMR) and the federations argue that the two mineral categories – o

Ipsen Receives CHMP Negative Opinion for Palovarotene as a Treatment for Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva in E.U.27.1.2023 09:00:00 EET | Press release

Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) announced today that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended not to grant marketing authorization for investigational palovarotene as a treatment for the ultra-rare bone disease, fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP). In the E.U. there are currently only symptomatic treatments for FOP, which do not reduce the formation of extra-skeletal bone in patients with the condition. Ipsen will be requesting a re-examination of the CHMP opinion, based on scientific data available from the existing palovarotene clinical trial program. FOP causes permanent and continuous new bone formation in soft and connective tissues, like muscles, tendons and ligaments, a process known as heterotopic ossification (HO).1 Once formed, it is irreversible.1 The average age of diagnosis is 5 years old2 and ultimately FOP shortens the median life expectancy to 56 years as untimely death is
