I found the first problem was trying to set it up and run it with the home system but once that was resolved the unit worked quite well. It’s somewhat east to maintain and clean which sets it apart from other air purifiers I’ve used
Auto mode is useless
While I believe this unit may work well as a purifier, the fact is that I and other people have reported that the auto sensor is next to useless.
In Sydney with our current smoke it always read below 10 which is super low. While I believe the filter part of it works, the auto sensor can not be trusted. Use one of the manual settings instead, which is a shame.
Purchased in January 2020 at Xiaomi Australia for $300.00.
Questions & Answers
Does anyone know how long the HEPA filter last in the normal daily use (i.e. 2-4 hours per day) ?
24 hours a day will last 6 months
Can the wifi be turned off completely so it does not transmit?
If for some reason you don't want it to transmit you can just operate it manually straight out of the box. I believe you need to download the app and connect it to a 2.4 ghz WiFi modem in order for the Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier to regularly be transmitting. From memory, the air purifier may look for an app and a WiFi connection when you first plug it in. (We have always had ours connected to WiFi because we want to take advantage of all the features).
