You can use these with any zigbee hub you already have?!
I already have a hue hub, so these should be able to communicate through that one?
I don't use hub. Thread doesn't need hub and that's where HomeKit devices should go.

This just shows again how much I hate the Apple online store. I have no idea how to get to this category. Where is it hidden? How do I get to it? I literally had to Google Aqara + Apple to get to a direct landing page (same with getting to the AirTag page actually)

You won’t be able to add Aqara devices to 3rd party Zigbee hub. Only Aqara or Xiaomi getaway.
Not true. You can use Aqara devices with many third party gateways. I have a number of leak sensors and a temp/humidity one attached to a Deconz gateway. You won’t get native HomeKit, but you can still get them into HomeKit via Homebridge or Home Assistant if you wanted to go that way.

what is the battery life of a thread sensor (motion, window, temperatur, push button whatever)?
No less than Bluetooth ones.

Apple's Online Store Temporarily Down [Update: Back Up]
