One of the greatest technological revolutions of our century is intelligent households. Home automation allows us to control the electronics in our homes, whether we are at home or not, and we can get information about our home wherever we are. In this context, Xiaomi launches the Mi Smart Plug Zigbee, which makes it easy to connect to a smart device. How? Let's look at it!
Smart home appliances
The best thing about deciding to create a smart home is that you don't have to start remodeling or spend more than you have to, because Xiaomi is launching relatively inexpensive products that will do the job they should. This is also the case with the Xiaomi Mi Plug Zigbee. Simply plug in the adapter, sync it with your Mi Smart Gateway and Mi Home. From here, you can remotely turn on or off the appliance that is connected to the outlet, set a timer, monitor the status and power consumption of your connected devices. Real use? For example, a ladder in the bathroom, for which you simply tap the plan for the whole week on the phone, or turn it on from the bed. No tedious setting of the timer. Or the connection between the socket and the kettle - no more worries about whether you actually disconnected it from the mains for the weekend. Same with a washing machine, for example. Or set a schedule for the fan or air conditioning in the office for the summer.
Notice!This is the Zigbee version, so you must have a compatible control unit / gateway, specifically the Xiaomi Smart Sensor Set or Aqara Gateway. This is not a WiFi version, which is enough for any WiFi network (but again, it has a smaller range and other ailments).
Lightweight and minimalist design
Like every of Xiaomi products, this one has a high quality design with minimalist finishes. It is white and small, so you can plug it into an adapter with multiple outlets and not take up the entire plug. In addition, if the device is overheated, it will automatically shut down.
