The new Bluetooth enabled Xiaomi smart power socket costs about $10
As reflected in the name, the new product can be used as a Bluetooth gateway. The outlet is able to communicate via Bluetooth with other gadgets, such as sensors, and then send information over the Wi-Fi network to servers on the network.
As a result, the user is able to control the operation of Bluetooth devices and sensors from anywhere in the world where there is an Internet connection. An accompanying mobile application for the smartphone is used for control.
The novelty allows remote switching on/off: it allows you to remotely activate the device connected to a smart socket. For example, a normal heater can be connected to the socket and switched on before returning home.
You can also set the timer for the new product. Two standard USB Type-A ports are provided on the socket body to charge or power various gadgets.
The Xiaomi Mijia Smart Socket Bluetooth Gateway Edition is made in white. It will be available at an estimated price of 10 USD.
