Aqara Cube T1 Pro Controller Showcased: Supporting both HomeKit and Alexa, Aqara’s new Cube T1 Pro Controller has been released. Following on the heels of the Smart Feeder for Pets’ debut is this brand-new offering.
Push, shake, spin, and tap are among the newer functions, in addition to the ones carried over from the previous model. A scene mode has been included in the new update for simplified scene manipulation.
The new Aqara controller’s adaptability is the device’s crowning feature. Through the Aqara hub, the Aqara Cube T1 Pro controller is compatible with HomeKit, Alexa, and Matter. Soon after, an over-the-air upgrade for the Aqara Hub M2 will roll out with Matter support.
The new tool provides a refined method of managing the HomeKit ecosystem. Flipping to side 1 or 2 activates a certain Scene Mode activity, such as the Cinema scene or the morning routine, respectively, because each side can be used to operate a different set of devices.

Using the Aqara Home app and the Aqara Cube T1 Pro’s rotation, you may operate numerous sets of curtains or roller blinds. By flipping and rotating Side 3, you can control the amount of light let in through the curtains and how bright your Aqara lights are.
Aqara has updated their most useful or most useless Zigbee device, opinions vary strongly on this one. It is the Magic Cube T1 Pro.
I appreciate the subtle dot numbering in the corners for this upgrade, personally don’t care much for Homekit compatibility but that’s just me pic.twitter.com/e7QkbYqaVw

A single battery can power the Aqara Cube T1 Pro for up to two years, thanks to its Zigbee 3.0 protocol-based design. The Aqara Cube T1 Pro, which has support for Apple‘s HomeKit and receives regular over-the-air upgrades with new features and bug fixes, can be purchased through the online retailer.
