Many people were waiting for an external camera that they could connect to the Mi Home application, finally the day came. Xiaomi under its own brand Mijia presented a camera with the degree of IP65 hermeticity, it is also wireless!
The new camera shape resembles a laptop power supply on the footer. Dimensions are 140,4 mm x 47 mm x 73 mm, and the weight is 270g.

The most important feature of the new product, of course, is IP65. The camera can be suspended without risk on the outer facade of buildings, can withstand both dust and rain. Thanks to the foot and the ball joint, the "Eye of Sauron" can be directed in any direction.
There is a central unit connected to the camera, so-called gate. Its main task is a more stable signal during remote transmission and less power consumption by the camera. There is also a microSD card slot in the gateway if you want to store the alarm recording locally. The gate should be connected to the power supply of the 230V socket, apart from the microSD card slot it also has an Ethernet socket to provide a stable signal using a cable.
