Xiaomi this week launched a new device aimed at the smart home, Xiaomi Smart Home Screen 6. It allows you to control other devices that are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, functioning similar to what we find in rivals such as the Amazon Echo Show 8.
This new smart hub brings minimalist design, compact construction, and focuses on serving residential users who are looking for a device to control lamps, sockets, curtains, and various other accessories that can be connected to the Internet.
Keeping the look of its predecessor, the new generation displays a 5.45-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 960 x 480 pixels and without many highlights, bringing at the top a 2 MP front camera that can be used for video calls from the device or facial recognition; the dimensions are 148.2 x 142.9 x 33.5 mm.
The manufacturer also included an audio set with speakers for sound reproduction and a built-in microphone for voice capture. The operating system that powers the device is MIUI Home, an interface that has a layout completely adapted to provide good navigation between menus and resources.
According to information from the company, the Xiaomi Smart Home Screen 6 uses 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi connectivity — this version does not support Dual Band 5 GHz — and Bluetooth 5.0. In short, there is not much to present about the Smart Home Screen 6′, which comes with the premise of meeting the demand of the smart home market.
