Interested in picking up the Xiaomi Mi Smart Home Gateway online, can anyone confirm if its possible to buy one with a native the NZ/AU plug? If so, is there a particular model or model number to look for? Pictures online suggest it is, but learnt a long time ago not to trust pictures when buying from China. 

 

Also interested in the Smart Socket Plug and Temperature and Humidity Sensor, and am a bit confused between the different models, is one model notably better than the others?

 

Any other tips on buy Xiaomi products online?

I just received mine last week, and I’m really pleased with it. As far as I’m aware they’re only available with a NZ/AU plug, which is great! Just be aware it extends over the switches of most wall sockets.
I bought a kit that came with a smart socket, a motion sensors and door/window sensor. All are now integrated into HomeKit with Homebridge, and it works really well. I’m very happy with it for the price.
