Xiaomi is well-known around the world for its budget smartphones, but the Chinese giant has spread its reach into the entertainment segment with TVs and soundbars, and in the IoT segment with smart bulbs, routers and security cameras among other things. However, Xiaomi’s isn’t restricted to just these products, as it runs a crowdsourcing platform in China that churns out some pretty interesting and handy gadgets and accessories. Well, we recently went to Xiaomi’s flagship Mi Store in Shenzhen, China, and we came across some really cool gadgets. So, here are 10 cool Xiaomi gadgets you probably didn’t know about:
10 Xiaomi Gadgets You Should Check Out
Note: Most of the gadgets in this list are not manufactured by Xiaomi, but instead have been crowdfunded on the company’s Youpin platform in China.
1. Xiaomi Auto-Sense IR Induction Water Saving Device
Apart from increasing its budget smartphone market share, well, it seems Xiaomi cares about water conservation and auto-sense IR induction water saving device is surely the best example of the same. This device that you see below attaches to your tap using connectors that come in the packaging to convert your standard tap into an auto-sense one, similar to those you might have seen at airports or malls.
Once you’ve installed the device, you simply need to bring your hand under the faucet to see the water start running. But it will only release water enough to wash hands and then stop. As for when you wave your hand over the sensor on the side, there’s a continuous water supply for 3 minutes, so water isn’t wasted if you forget to turn off the tap. Pretty awesome, ain’t it?

Yeelight makes some of the best smart products and well, this wireless charger and LED night lamp combo is no exception.
