I have long wanted to write this article, but I have been very busy (in fact, lazy). . . Since I bought a MI socket and I became a fan of MI. I brought a lot of products from MI and I never be disappointed yet. This year, with the addition of Mi little AI speakers, the smart home is no longer exclusive to me, a technology geek. My wife and my mother-in-law are also very skilled in using voice control. It really liberates my hands and improves efficiency.
The house was renovated in 2011. At that time, there was no smart home concept, only the ceiling lamp and wall switch with remote control, and it was especially expensive. Later, MI smart products were released one by one, so my home decoration did not optimize for a smart home. Perhaps this is also the status quo of the vast majority of families.
MI intelligent setting logic:
Intelligent scene setting interface: divided into manual execution(can be performed by voice control by little AI) and automatic execution (sensor trigger)
MI’s universal remote control settings interface: can learn the existing remote control, or search the remote control model database
The setting interface of little AI speaker: After setting up the manual intelligent scene, binding with little AI
Scene: Turn on the TV, turn off the TV
Voice command: little AI, turn on the TV / I want to watch TV / Watch TV / I want to watch TV
Process: When the command is received, the speaker will say “OK, the TV is being turned on for you”. At the same time, the Mi plug-in board will be powered on. After 3 seconds, the remote control will turn on the TV and audio power, and the IPTV will automatically turn on after this.
Voice command: little Ai, turn off the TV / TV off
Process: When the command is received, the speaker will say “OK, the TV is being turned off for you”. At the same time, the remote control first turns off the audio and the TV power, and shut down the plug-in board is powered off after 3 seconds.
Tip: These operations require the cooperation of little AI and Mi universal remote control. Little AI’s app can set custom commands, and can set multiple synonyms to execute the same command, so as long as you have the patience to set up. Also, little AI will also match synonyms intelligently. For example, "turn on the TV", "turn on the TV for me" and "turn on the TV" will all be matched intelligently.
Most of the remote control's power-on and power-off buttons are the same, and the infrared remote control can't judge the current state of the device. So, sometimes I open and closed it at same time. Here to recommend a useful product. Logitech universal remote control. The software for the remote control has a rich remote control database, and many remote controls provide separate boot and shutdown commands. This allows the MI universal remote control to learn the independent open and shutdown code to control the appliance more accurately.
Scene: Turn on the computer, turn off the computer
Voice command: Little AI, turn on the computer
Process: When the command is received , the little AI will say "OK, the computer power has been turned on for you", and the power of MI plug-in board is on, along with the components of the computer.
Tip: Set the “Power On” function in the power management of the computer BIOS. When the power is turned on, the computer will automatically turn on.
Turn off the computer: The power strip has a function. When the power consumption is less than 2W in one minute, it will automatically turn off. Using this function the power strip will automatically power off when you shut down the computer.
Scene: Turning on the light when open the door
Sometimes the room is dark after going home at night, turning the lights on is required. After I setting this up, the light will turn on automaticlly after I open the door and will shut down after two minutes.
Required equipment: MI Gateway, door and window sensor, wall switch
Tip: The wall switch has a live line version and a neutral line version. Before you buy, be sure to check if your home switch has a reserved neutral line. Otherwise, there is no way to use it.
Scene: automatically turn on the stair light
Several devices have been purchased to implement the function of a stair sensor light... This stair sensor light is really expensive.
Required equipment: MI Gateway, human body sensor, smart light bulb or wall switch
Tip: I have two body sensors installed on the two ends of the stairs.
In order to solve the blind spot, the lights will turn on when people near the first-floor stairs ot walk on the second floor. It will automatically turn off after two minutes.
Scene: Air conditioning control
This is a common function, no need to say more, the biggest advantage is that there is a sleep mode, you can set three temperatures at night, the temperature can be gradually increased, prevent colds, and more energy-saving, and can be linked with the temperature sensor, temperature sensor can be placed anywhere.
Scene: sink light, kitchen light
Required equipment: MI power supply, wall switch, MI gateway, switch
Voice command: Little AI, I want to cook / I want to wash the dishes / Turn on the sink light / Turn on all the lights in the kitchen / Open the kitchen ceiling light / Turn on the kitchen light
After received the voice command, the corresponding command will be executed. The sink light strip is plugged to the MI power supply, and there is also a USB interface connected to an IKEA small spotlight. I feel tired with voice command sometimes. I put a small switch on the wall of the sink, press to turn the sink light on or off, double-press to open or close the kitchen ceiling light, and long press to turn the small spotlight on or off.
Tip: Voice is not the fastest way to operate. Sometimes it is more convenient to use the MI switch in a small area.
Sticked to the door, it has not been stolen yet. . . After pressing, the gateway on the first floor and the air-conditioner on the second floor will ring, and the gateway will light up. No chance to miss the bell. It is recommended that the gateway add the function of custom recording. For example, when you are not at home, it can be played: "I am not at home, please put the delivery outside the door."
Scene: turn on the living room lights and the living room spotlights
Required equipment: wall switch, MI universal remote control
Voice command: little AI, turn on the living room light / turn on the living room spotlight / turn on the night light / the living room light is adjusted to the brightest / the living room light is adjusted to the darkest
The home is equipped with a Panasonic ceiling lamp with remote control and night light mode. After a preset command, the switch is energized, the remote control adjusts the brightness of the light after one second.
Tip: The original living room is equipped with a four-open switch to control the living room spotlights, ceiling lamps, ceiling lights at the door and spotlights at the door, but MI has only two switches, so I connect the living room spotlights and the living room ceiling lights in parallel. Same for the light near the door. I hope that MI can make a switch that is three open and four open.
Scene: Christmas Tree Lantern
Around Christmas last year, the Christmas tree power outlet was set to be powered from Monday to Friday from 18:00 to 0:00 pm, and from 6:00 to 7:00 am, so that my family can see the beautiful Christmas tree when we at home, no waste electricity when there is no one at home. The opening time will be earlier on the weekend.
Combination scene: sleeping
Voice command: little Ai, I am going to sleep.
After receiving the voice command, little Ai responded: "Good night, have a good dream." ( the command reply can be customized.) After that, all the lights on the first floor will be turned off, the TV will be turned off, the humidifier, the purifier, the fresh air will be closed, but the stair light will be turned on so that it is convenient to go up the stairs to the bedroom.
Combined scene: leaving home
Voice command: little Ai, I have to go out.
After receiving the voice command, Little Ai responded: "Be careful, go home early" All lights will then be turned off and all appliances will be turned off.
Combine scenes: turn on all lights
Voice command: little Ai, open all lights on the first floor
When the voice command is received, all the things that can be illuminated on the first floor will be turned on, and the lights will be brightest, and it is more convenient to find things at night.
Easter Egg Scene: Start your show
Voice command: Little love classmates, start your performance
Inspired by Tesla, set all the lights in the house, keep turning on, off, on, off... but the APP can only be set to 1 second, the effect is not ideal.
Other scenes: turn on the desk lamp, turn on the desk light, turn on the desk lamp, they are basics.
Unable to link equipment: MI water purifier, rice appliance kettle, weight scale
Products that I hope to launch:
Recording home and home equipment, it seems that the door lock has this function, but it is a bit expensive. If you can install a device on the app or keychain to record whether there is someone at home, I think there will be more way to play.
The universal remote control supports radio frequency. Some lights and electric curtains in the home are RF remote control. If MI can support RF, I can also control them. MI’s own electric curtains are too expensive, and the price is not MI at all.
