So you’re now introduced to the basics of the XiaoMi Gateway and it’s peripherals, and how to integrate them all into your Home Assistant setup.
This tutorial is just a introduction and we are merely touching the tip of a huge iceberg.
As mentioned previously - the sky’s the limit. Example of additional things you can do is to expand on this simple door chime idea by turning on/off the light on the XiaoMi gateway (As another Automation, or daisy chained into the current one).
You’re not limited by your own imagination, only by the smart devices you own . In time there will be more blog articles to address them all. If you like this article, don’t forget to read other related articles linked below.
Would love to hear more from you. Comments/Suggestions/Questions are welcome, please post them below and I’d try my best to address them.

- Tap "About"
- At the bottom, you should see "Plug-in versin: xxx.xxx.xx"
- Tap that repeatedly and two more options will pop up
- Type "Wireless communication protocol"
- Turn "Wireless communication protocol" on
- That password you see below is your API key (Everything after "Passwrd:"
