Processing and design
The Xiaomi Mijia night light makes a solid impression on me, it is cleanly finished and has no manufacturing defects. With the dimensions of 84 x 84 x 36 mm and a weight of 72 grams, it can basically be attached anywhere.
On the back of the Xiaomi Mijia night light is a round adhesive surface with which the night light can be mounted without any other attachment.
If you don’t want to stick the night light directly on the wall or the cabinet, you can use the included bracket.
The battery compartment is opened by turning the back counterclockwise.
There is a small switch in the middle. This can be used to change the brightness of the night light, with a choice of 0.7 lumen or 3.8 lumen – depending on personal preference.
According to the manufacturer, a runtime of six months in 3.8 lumen mode and twelve months in 0.7 lumen mode should be possible. How long the night light is switched on on average in this calculation is unfortunately not specified.
The Xiaomi Mijia night light in practical test
As soon as it is dark in a room, the night light sensor reacts to movements in a radius of 120° at a distance of up to 7 meters. How precisely the sensor reacts also depends on the speed of the movements.
In the test, as expected, the night light worked perfectly and came on reliably as soon as it was dark in the room. When aligning the small lamp, however, you should make sure that it is not placed in the direction of the bed. There is a risk that it will be switched on unintentionally by movements during sleep.
If you are looking for a small lamp to show the way at night or to light up your closet in the morning, the Xiaomi night light is the right choice. With the brightness setting of 0.7 lumens or 3.8 lumens, the lamp is not unpleasantly bright immediately after getting up. It prepares one in the case of the fall gently for the ceiling lamp or also the sun 😀 .
The only point of criticism I see is the missing recess for a screw fastening. You can also use the adhesive holder, but this is not very nice.To the gadget
