1. Unboxing

Packaging

Aqara Smart Door Lock N200 has the obvious Mi Home and Apple HomeKit certification marks on the packaging. Don’t think this is just two certifications, it shows that it really has dual chips to achieve dual ecological control. And you should know only 3% of the products can get Apple Homekit certification.

2. Product details

Upper part

The upper part of the front panel of N200 is the password area. Below the password area is the NFC identification area. Not only you can unlock it with fingerprints and passwords, but with NFC function. There is also a doorbell function on the Aqara N200 password area. This is very practical. But if it is dark, it is hard to find. I hope other solutions will appear later.

The touch panel of Aqara N200 on the front panel is made of sapphire. It is wear-resistant and can recognize accurate input.

The fingerprint unlocking module of Aqara N200 is integrated into the groove of the door handle rotation axis. This design is more in line with the user’s usage habits. Before opening the door, you can press the thumb to the fingerprint area. And the door can be opened by pressing the handle.

The fingerprint module uses 3D semiconductor fingerprint recognition. And it has the fake fingerprint detection algorithm provided by the world-famous Swedish Swedish fingerprint algorithm company PREciSE BIOMETRICS. This kind of algorithm is widely used in financial institutions with high-security requirements. The fingerprint recognition speed is fast and the recognition accuracy is high.

Lower part

There is a concealed round cover under the front panel handle, which can be ejected by pressing it. When there are problems with electronic components, you can use the emergency key to manually unlock. So you can avoid the embarrassment of being blocked outside the door.

Rear panel

The rear panel of Aqara N200 is symmetrical to the front panel. The handle uses a special protective design. You can unlock the handle by pressing the button after pressing the button.

On the back of the installation position, you can see clear installation instructions. The back of the inner panel is reserved for the lock core and the outer panel connection slot. And the back has a large area of rubber protection to effectively protect the product.

  1. Hi Peter,

    The specs says up to 93% humidity, no condensation.
    I guess rain droplets mean condensation, however it is not clear whether that implies some functionalities won’t work with rain (the numerical keyboard?) Or if it means water could enter the frame and damage the electronics inside.
    Any related warning in the manual you got in the box?

    Thanks

    • No mention of the raindrop proof in the manual. However normally if you have a shelter at your house, the lock won’t get raindrops… Just from my point of view.
