Lumi United Technology Co., Ltd.


It is not difficult to see from the name of the enterprise that there is some connection between Lumi and Xiaomi. 


Lumi belongs to Xiaomi's ecological chain enterprise.

Aqara, a provider for smart home products.

In 2009, Shenzhen Lumi Lianchuang Technology Co., Ltd. was formally established, and its initial business was mainly energy-saving transformation and intelligent transformation of public buildings.


In 2014, Lumi did smart home, and due to a shortage of funds, Xiaomi invested in Lumi when the company was in difficulty. Lumi joined the Xiaomi ecological chain, focusing on the product research and development of Xiaomi smart home, focusing on the research and promotion of low-power innovative smart home systems.

In 2014, at that time, it was still called Shenzhen Lutuo Technology Co., Ltd., and received heavy capital injection from Xiaomi, Shunwei and other companies, and officially changed its name to Lumi. Since then, Lumi's main business has changed to smart home, becoming a member of Xiaomi's ecological chain.


In 2015, the first product, the "Xiaomi Smart Home" set, was released.

Like many Xiaomi ecological chain enterprises, when the enterprise develops to a certain scale, gets rid of the "shackles" of millet and pursues independent development, it becomes a new topic faced by enterprises, and the same is true for green rice.


According to Liang Zhenpeng, an observer of industrial economy, "many Xiaomi's ecological chain enterprises are 'de-milletized' after becoming bigger and stronger, because Xiaomi takes the low-end route of extreme cost performance, which will form a certain resistance for enterprises that want to switch to the high-end market in the later stage." However, in the process of transformation, the comprehensive ability of enterprises is very tested, and it is difficult for Lumi. ”



In 2020,Times reporter statistics found that since 2020, some new products of Aqara, a brand of Lumi, no longer support the Mijia APP, but instead support platforms such as Apple HomeKit, Lumi APP, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. The gateway M2, which was listed in 2021, was even criticized by netizens because it could not be interconnected with the Mijia APP.


At present, although Lumi, which is gradually moving away from Xiaomi, has reached new cooperation with Apple, Google, etc., it does not seem to have caused much splash in the market. The Times reporter noticed that on the Taobao platform, as of December 14, only one product that did not support the Mijia APP ranked in the top ten in the monthly sales ranking of green rice single products.
