It comes with high tech features such as laser sensors detecting particles as small as 0.3μm, alongside smart control through an app.

Sometimes it certainly helps to have a second pair of eyes back home, for everything watching over the kids, or handling other stuff like having contractors come in to fix something. With Xiaomi’s 360° Home Security Camera though, you can perhaps afford to have quite a few of them around the house.

These offer a respectable 2K resolution on a 360-degree view mount. And unlike the regular models, which rely solely on black-and-white infrared, the Pro version still displays in full colour under low-light conditions. It’s a nifty feature when checking on your sleeping kids, or perhaps around the home when you hear a bump in the night.

It also allows for live, real-time display through your usual devices like phones and tablets, so it’s easy to monitor your home even when you’re at your office. There is even a dual-microphone feature that allows you to call home for a 2-way conversation, be it checking in on your fur babies or talking to your kids during lunch break.

The privacy-minded among us can be at ease, as you can roll the camera down when you don’t want the camera monitoring a place at that point in time.

The 360° Home Security Camera isn’t going to hog the home internet bandwidth much either, thanks to its H.265 video encoding technology, producing video feeds that are half the file size of traditional ones. Its dual-band connection means that you’ll have stable connections too.

You won’t have to worry about needing to have a shelf for it either, as you can just as easily mount it upright or inverted.

There are definitely models with a higher price tag out there, but this Xiaomi offering promises similar performance but at a much lower price point.

Using a mix of laser-based imaging and AI, it detects and avoids obstacles with the millimetre-level accuracy that lets it recognise and negotiate with even smaller items like power cables and socks.

A feature that is much appreciated for smaller homes is the fact that you don’t have to place it perpendicular to the wall for an optimal projection. The multi-axis projection feature in this device uses different axes to adjust your screen so that it will display properly even when placed on the side or at an angle.

Speaking of smaller homes, it also comes with wide projection ratios. In fact, it promises to be able to cast screens as large as 120” from just 3.2 m away, making it perfect for compact rooms. And with built-in Dolby Audio speakers, you can live out your home theatre dreams with just one device.

Effectively a smart home hub not unlike its more well-known counterparts like Google Nest and Echo Dot, it also comes with many features you’d want for such a device.

It has Chromecast, giving you access to online streaming services, uses Google Assistant for voice commands and you can link several of these speakers connected together in your home for synchronised house-wide audio. But it does have a rather nifty ace up its sleeve.

The Xiaomi Smart Speaker comes with an IR transmitter that lets it take your Google Assistant commands and interpret them into IR signals for your more traditional devices. What this means is that you get to have a taste of the convenient J.A.R.V.I.S-style interactions enjoyed by smart home users today, but without having to commit to overhauling your home gadgets just yet.

There are certainly plenty of bladeless alternatives to the traditional bladed fan in today’s market. But few can match the chic, futuristic style points that the Dyson Cool Tower Fan has, you are getting a lot of its functionality with this Xiaomi product.

One of the key features would have to be its extremely large coverage, providing cooling breeze along the entire height of the grille at a 150° angle. You also get to enjoy a bladeless design and a fine 6.9mm grille that prevents your children from carelessly getting their fingers stuck inside the fan, which families with kids would no doubt be thankful for.

It runs rather quietly, with as little as 34.6 dB(A) on its lowest setting and 59.2 dB(A) of sound on its highest. And with how much cooling it does, perhaps you might even consider using this instead of air-conditioning too, especially when you have its low 3.5W electricity consumption.
