Mi Motion Activated Night Light 2 First Impressions


Xiaomi, at Smarter Living 2020 event back in September unveiled Mi Motion Activated Night Light 2 under its crowdfunding program. It is a versatile night lamp that automatically turns on upon detecting motion, and blends in perfectly in the home decor. We got hold of a unit, and here is what we think of it.

You get the Mi Motion-Activated Night Light 2, a magnetic mount and a regular user manual inside the packaging box.

The Mi Motion-Activated Night Light 2 has a minimal design similar to other Xiaomi ecosystem products.

The Mi Motion-Activated Night Light 2 has a 360-degree rotating magnetic structure with strong adhesive, so you can install and move the light with ease.

The Mi Motion-Activated Night Light 2 works with 3 AA batteries. It features a photosensitive and a human body dual sensor, because of which the light only turns on when it detects motion in the low ambient light environment and has a 120-degree wide range to detect motion.

Mi Motion-Activated Night Light 2 has two brightness modes of 25 lumens and 4 lumens and produces 2800k warm yellow light that offers ample light in any environment. The light switches off automatically after 15 seconds after the object moves away from the defined vicinity.

During my usage, I found it quite useful except for a complaint. It worked as it is supposed to be all the time, as the photosensitive and human body sensor duo never failed to detect any motion in dark environments. The higher brightness 25 lumens mode produces sufficient light in a decent-sized room. The only complaint that I had with the light was the placement of switch for switching between the brightness mode, which Xiaomi for some reason placed near the batteries.

The Mi Motion Activated Night Light 2 can be purchased for Rs. 500 on mi.com, but at the time of writing, it is out of stock.
