One of the most coveted fitness trackers of 2019 is the new Xiaomi Mi Band 4. Unfortunately, due to its limited availability, Xiaomi does not directly sell the Mi Band 4 in Europe or North America, but it can now be ordered in the China shops. You can get a very good price for:
- $37.89 at Banggood for the International Version (Discount code: BGM37) or
- $32.99 at Banggood for the Chinese Version (Discount code: BGM43C).
Are the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 Chinese Version and NFC version suitable for non-Chinese speaking users?
Yes, they are!... Check these videos here!. You can change the language!

Last April, I published a tutorial about connecting the Aqara sensors to a Raspberry Pi without using the Xiaomi Gateway. To make that possible, I needed a CC Debugger to flash the TI CC2531 Zigbee Dongle. This debugger was used only one time, and then the Zigbee-USB dongle worked without any problem.
In this article, I will cover a way to flash the CC2531 without the CC Debugger. This reduces project costs (about $10 for debugger + cable adapters) and waiting time. Usually, you wait 30 days to get a low cost version of the debugger (using the cheapest shipping option). Let's start!
The new Huami's Amazfit GTR has not only inspired me but also you. Now it has just been introduced, but can now be ordered in the China shops. You get a very good price for 149.99$ at Banggood for the bigger 47 mm version in the International Version. This supports English and Chinese language. The price is valid for the 47mm variation (42mm variants are currently not available) and will be adjusted as soon as you put the watch into the shopping cart (see figure at the end).

On July 4th, I ordered a Raspberry Pi 4B. To be honest, I really didn't/don't need a new Raspberry Pi, I don't have any specific task for it, but I saw some cool stuff on the Internet, and I said: Ok, I need one! Thus, I bought the 4GB model on Reichelt. The expected delivery date was on July 10th but, I had to wait a little longer and I got it on July 17th! Everything was ok, and I got the following closed and sealed box (see Fig. 1):

But, as soon as I opened the box, my joy faded! :( With a quick visual control, I checked tha...

This is a really misc. small article. Two month ago, I bought on Banggood two articles that I wanted to show you, but this time, these are not connected to an application, code or a detailed product review. This is only a misc. article to describe my purchase: The Xiaomi Wowstick Screw Driver and the TTGO ESP32 WROVER with 8MB PSRAM.
If you are looking for a very small electric screw driver, then the Xiaomi Wowstick is an option for you. It includes everything that you need except the batteries. You need two AAA batteries and you can start disarming toys, clocks, cell...

Timeular is still on Summer Sale with up to 50% discount! Limited stock left, don’t miss out!
First of all, this article is a product review which was/is not supported by Timeular GmbH or similar. I bought the product two weeks ago, because I wanted to test it. I missed out the Kickstarter campaign (2016) and the regular price for the octahedron was too expensive for me.

I've been very busy the last weeks. I moved to a new apartment and I was living between moving boxes. Four days ago, I managed to put my desk together and now I have some time (not a lot) to write a new article.
Last month I've received from GearBest two Aqara sensors:
These sensors use Zigbee and I connected them to a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian OS and a dockerized version of Home Assistant (DIY tutorial). This connection was made without using any Xiaomi gateway (DIY tutorial).

PEP-8 (sometimes PEP 8 or PEP8) is a coding standard and style guide for readability and long-term maintainability of code in Python. It was written in 2001 by Guido van Rossum, Barry Warsaw, and Nick Coghlan and provides guidelines and best practices on how to program Python code. PEPs stand for Python Enhancement Proposals, and they describe and document the way Python language evolves, providing a reference point (and in some way a standardization) for the pythonic way to write code.
This tutorial presents some of the most important key points of PEP-8. If you want to, you can read the ful...

Attention Docker Hub users - Docker Hub has been hacked!
An email containing the following highlight was sent to the users whose account data may have been exposed.
During a brief period of unauthorized access to a Docker Hub database, sensitive data from approximately 190,000 accounts may have been exposed (less than 5% of Hub users). Data includes usernames and hashed passwords for a small percentage of these users, as well as Github and Bitbucket tokens for Docker autobuilds (full email).
If you got this email you should (and if you didn't receive that email, do it too ;)):

Last week, the Coral team released updates to the Coral platform to "address customer feedback and make it easier to use the products and tool-chain". The Python API has now the ability to run multiple models in parallel, using multiple Edge TPUs.
Thus, due to the multiple changes, I updated the Docker image
lemariva/raspbian-edgetpuwhich includes the Edge-TPU libraries for Raspberry Pi 3 B+, Jupyter Notebooks and some other interesting libraries (check the Dockerfile).
