Original Magic Cube Controller – Aqara Xiaomi Mi Mijia Wireless Zigbee for Smart Homes and Smart Devices
The Aqara Xiaomi Mijia Cube Controller is equipped with an accelerometer and a gyroscope, it also has a unique Mi algorithm, which allows you to control your other Mi smart home appliances, like Mi TV, Yeelights, Mi Air Purifier, etc.
You can use six different actions to control your smart applications: push, shake, double knock, rotate, overturn 90 degrees and overturn 180 degrees. All of the Xiaomi-made Mi Smart Home Devices you’ve already got around your home will work automatically with this cube.
Aqara Cube Controller doesn’t have any buttons, so it integrates some gravity turn sensors (gyroscopes) working on 6 different kinds of controls/motions like shake, 90-degree flip, 180-degree flip, double knock, Rotate, and Nudge. For each action, a specific function is programmed (turn on or off) for each device.

- Just one touch on the Aqara Cube Controller and your Mi TV will turn off automatically.
- Turn the Aqara Cube Controller by 90 degrees, and your Mi Air Purifier will automatically turn on.
