A couple of days back, Xiaomi announced two new products made in the frame of the smart home system. The first is the enhanced variant of the Xiaomi smart socket outlet, while the second is the USB charger with 6 USBs 60W Fast Charge. The Xiaomi Enhanced Smart Socket Outlet comes with very useful features. So we decided to recall them once again and take a look at its appearance.
The Xiaomi Enhanced Smart Socket Outlet comes with solid materials. Plus, it brings an intelligent experience. The first-gen Xiaomi smart socket launched in 2014. Later the manufacturer released the Zigbee version. But this variant is also available for purchase at a price tag of 79 yuan ($13). So we should state there are a few models of this socket now.
The main difference of the Xiaomi Enhanced Smart Socket Outlet is the dual-USB interface that can be used for multiple devices simultaneously. Plus, it supports for BC1.2 protocol, remote control, timer switch, power statistics and other functions.
The next key feature is the built-in temperature sensor that provides a ‘hot reminder’ function. Thanks to a real-time monitoring feature it will give an alert to the user when high-power electrical equipment is in use and the smart socket temperature significantly increased. So when the temperature is too high, it will cut off the power automatically in order to reduce the risk.
The Xiaomi Enhanced Smart Socket Outlet also supports mobile APP control. The status of the socket can be displayed on your phone’s screen anytime. So you can control the power switch remotely. Moreover, thanks to the timer switch function you can set a timer for a Xiaomi smart home system product. So it will automatically shut down when necessary.
