Xiaomi brings the word of ‘smart’ to almost all products. And though most of them don’t deserve such a title, those products can be controlled via the APP, at least. Thus you don’t need to interact with them manually. This is quite useful and should be a sufficient selling point for the most customers. But these thoughts are not about Xiaomi products. Any Xiaomi device will offer you tons of smart features. Mostly, they support AI. That’s why the description of ‘smart’ fits them. Today we are going to take a closer look at the Xiaomi Mijia Bedside Lamp that was announced back in October 2017.

The first smart bedside lamp of the company released in 2015. It was priced 249 yuan ($39), which simply means many customers could afford themselves to get their hands on it. It took about two years to come in with an enhanced variant of the Xiaomi Yeelight Smart Lamp. As the name suggests, it comes our way from Mijia, which always offers great devices with minimalist design and great performance. In this sense, the Xiaomi Mijia Bedside Lamp is no exception.
The lamp comes with a simple appearance. It uses a cylindrical shape like its predecessor, but this time, it is smaller and more compact. The lamp consists of two parts. The upper (longer) part comes with a unique double-injection lamp cover made of Samsung PC material. The supplier has made it via thousands of deployment to achieve the best color, haze, and transparency, as well as a transparent PC layer with LG Chemical PC material. That’s why it provides a higher light transmittance. The lower part is made of metal. It uses a gold color and we have to say that’s more attractive than its predecessor that came in silver.
The connection line between the upper and lower parts is invisible. The Mijia logo is placed on the lower part. On the opposite side, we can find the charging interface.
As we said, the Xiaomi Mijia Bedside Lamp comes with smaller dimensions of 10.00 x 10.00 x 22.10 cm. Moreover, it weighs 1.3kg. So we should state it’s uncomfortable to carry with you. It’s better to place somewhere than move it frequently.
On the top, we can find all the necessary keys to control the lamp. Actually, there are two physical keys for turning it off/on and switching between modes. At the same time, there is a touch-controlled light intensity adjustment key. So you can slide clockwise along the top edge to adjust the light. The use of this bedside lamp is very convenient. And you can adjust any custom light brightness easily. However, the second key can be used for choosing the light color. You just have to press it for a few seconds and use the touch-controlled slider to choose the color you prefer.

All the aforementioned features don’t make this lamp smarter. But the Xiaomi Mijia Bedside Lamp is the enhanced version of the Xiaomi Yeelight Smart Lamp. And the main improvements refer to the addition of WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity options. Therefore, you can easily control it remotely. As you guess, this is implemented via the APP.
The APP allows you to do all the operations remotely. So no need to use the control panel on the top of the lamp. With the help of the APP, you can adjust the brightness, light mode, or set timers when it should turn off, and so on.
But even these features don’t make it smarter. So the manufacturer decided to allow other Xiaomi smart home products control it automatically. Say, it can be controlled via a Xiaomi phone, Mi Band, and Mi Audio Speaker (with AI). Moreover, you can turn the lights off via voice commands or sync it with the Mi Band that will turn the lamp off automatically when you lie down to sleep. You can even set a special time when you usually sleep and the lamp will adjust the colder light. The Xiaomi Mijia Bedside Lamp can even change the light automatically depending on the room temperature.
Not in vain this product is called a bedside lamp. It’s been designed for bedroom needs mainly. Say, you can use it to make a romantic atmosphere. You can adjust any color to relax. You can adjust the brightness for various purposes such as reading or sleeping. Anything you require from a lamp, the Xiaomi Mijia Bedside Lamp is capable to do.

But what’s more important it is the part of the smart home. Thus the connection between it and other products make allows you to organize your daily life tasks more smartly.
