The smart speakers market is getting overpopulated. Even those companies that have never had intentions on this niche are coming with worthy models. The best proof of this statement is Yeelight. As you know, this manufacturer is invested by Xiaomi and it is specializing in lamps, bulbs, etc. But a few months back, the manufacturer came in with an interesting smart speaker that caught our eyes immediately. As it’s a Xiaomi sub-brand, many take it as a Xiaomi smart speaker. But Xiaomi has launched its own smart speakers long ago. In this sense, the Yeelight Smart Assistant Speaker is more competitive with the Xiaomi Mi AI Mini Speaker. Let’s dive into details.
First, as we are dealing with a Xiaomi’s ecological chain product, it’s reasonable to expect for voice control that also refers to controlling home appliances. The Yeelight Voice Assistant can control home automation products like smart LED lamps, table lamps, bedside lamps, and ceiling lights, as you might expect.
It has two sets of voice interaction systems. Apart from the Xiaomi Ai, there is also Microsoft Cortana support. So it can be taken as a Chinese opportunity for Cortana. Why not?
On the main body of the mainframe, there are a total of five physical buttons. At the center is the multi-function button, with Mic switch and speaker switch on both sides. The top and bottom are the volume plus and minus buttons. Actually, it is identical to the Echo Dot.
There are 6 digital silicon microphones on the front of the Yeelight Smart Assistant Speaker, with advanced voice wake-up algorithm. It can normally operate within 5 meters.
A micro USB port is on the back. It is used for charging.
The bottom of the fuselage is designed with cooling and speaker holes. In the middle part, there is a whole rubber non-slip mat.
The packaging of the Yeelight Smart Assistant Speaker includes the speaker itself, a power adapter, and a USB cable.
It supports dual-band WiFi that provides a faster and more stable data transmission. The built-in Bluetooth BLE gateway can be used as a smart hub to let you know the status of the Bluetooth device in real time. It can also help the Bluetooth device to access the Mijia intelligent platform and link with other smart devices on the platform.
In the process of connecting with the Mijia APP on the smartphone, the Yeelight Smart Assistant Speaker will have a red light band shining in the state.
It’s powered by a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU with 256MB of RAM, and sports 256MB of internal memory
