It is the dream of most people to make their homes smart by embracing IoT technology but what many of them don’t know is that just about any home can be turned into a smart home. Xiaomi has a lot of cheap gadgets that can turn your home into a smart home with you being able to control these gadgets from your smartphone. In some cases, you can control the gadget even when you are out of the home. Banggood is offering a comprehensive discount on a number of Xiaomi smart home gadgets. The gadgets include the Roborock Vacuum cleaner launched last month. The first generation Mi Robot Vacuum is also available for as low as $288. Here is a list of some of the products on offer.
The Roborock Sweep One is similar in many respects to its predecessor- Mi Robot Vacuum. The robot is still round and equipped with a laser rangefinder, which is moved closer to the centre. The device also comes with a number of sensors which aids the robotic vacuum cleaner to circumvent obstacles, avoid steps, choose the most efficient route and quickly find a charging station.
One new innovative feature is its ability to carry out wet cleaning. It has space for a water tank which sprinkles water on the floor, perhaps in order to better remove dirt. The tank contains water at full capacity that can last for up to 45 minutes to 60 minutes of operation. Also, it packs a 5200mAh battery which is designed to provide 2.5 hours of battery life, equivalent to cleaning a 250m2 room.
Xiaomi Mijia Smart IP camera
Xiaomimart IP camera comes with the capability to shoot videos in Full HD (1980 x 1080pixel) resolution. It weighs in at just 100g, lighter than most smartphones around which makes it easy for it to get mounted on the ceiling with an adhesive tape or onto metal surfaces. The camera has an extendible base that can be propped up to increase its height or lowered to flush with the body and underneath is a powerful magnet which makes it easy for the camera to get mounted on a metal surface. The camera has a square shape like a cube measuring 5cm on all sides, thus you need not wonder why it is called Little Square camera.
As for the specs, it has a 20MP lens 1/2.7-inch CMOS sensor that records in full HD with support for 8x digital zoom for clearer, more detailed images. The camera has a f/2.0 aperture and 110-degree wide angle view. In addition, it features night vision enhancement technology allowing it to pick up objects up to 9 meters away in the dark. The cool gadget also comes with built-in microphone and loudspeaker which support two directional voice chatting, meaning you can communicate with chaps at home while you are out. It features a standard WiFi 802.11b/g/n and has a DC 5V/1A power rating which uses the standard USB port.
