Hub E1 - Aqara's new smart home control center

Aqara has released a new compact smart home control center Hub E1 . The device is designed as a flash drive with a USB-A connector, so it can be easily connected to a router, power supply, special socket, laptop and other devices with a free USB slot. The design provides rotation of the connector within 210 degrees.
