A week back at the Xiaomi IoT Developer Conference, the company CEO, Lei Jun announced the Xiaomi IoT platform has more than 800 smart devices from 400 partners. This makes it the world’s largest IoT platform for smart hardware. At the same event, the company unveiled another smart device for its smart home line dubbed as the Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Temperature & Humidity Sensor. It was priced at 69 yuan ($11).
The Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Temperature & Humidity Sensor should be very useful for different cases and people including parents with newborns and preschool children, pet owners, elderly people, and others. Many of them are not aware of the importance of such products. Say, they have no idea that the temperature and the surrounding humidity have a significant effect on children prone to respiratory diseases. For example, too low humidity causes respiratory dysfunction and the development of infections. So if you own an electronic thermometer/hygrometer, you can always monitor the environment changes in the rooms and correct it. This process has become easier than ever. As the Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Temperature & Humidity Sensor is a part of Xiaomi’s Smart Home, it can be controlled remotely via the APP. Say, you can automatically turn on and adjust the air conditioners, fans, air humidifiers and other equipment to prevent changes in temperature and humidity.
This humidity sensor comes in a cylindrical design with an LCD display on top. The latter uses too little power, but it is powerful enough. A replaceable battery can be used for a year. The Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Temperature & Humidity Sensor monitors in real time and clearly shows changes in temperature and humidity in the room.
It also has a thin round sticker to attach to the wall. The sensor itself seats on it via the magnets. Interestingly, the bulge on the label and the groove on the counter are not flat, but curved. This allows users to rotate the device at a slight angle. Its built-in sensor has a very high sensitivity providing accurate values up to 0.1.
Many air conditioners and heating equipment are equipped with a display to show the temperature. But they often reflect the state only around their own independent sensor. The Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Temperature & Humidity Sensor reflects the real situation in the whole room.
