The company Xiaomi has long been known for its household helpers. First I got a robot vacuum cleaner, then an alarm system, as part of a smart house , a kettle, etc. If the air cleaner appeared in Xiaomi for a long time, then the humidifier can be considered a novelty, a story about which I invite you to read more …
From the instructions, little is clear, the only thing that the free distance around the humidifier should be more than 30 centimeters, and in height more than 120. 40 centimeter power cord with Australian plug. The plug can be cut, buy a cord with a European plug separately or use an adapter. From adapters for this type of plug, I recommend this one – it fits very tightly and does not fall down. In a separate box is the power supply. It produces 34B and 1.76A. On the one hand, connects a thick and short power cord, and on the other hand, a 1.5 meter thin cord that goes directly from the humidifier.
Xiaomi did not deviate from the already familiar white color in their products and made a humidifier, too, only in white. The Xiaomi SMARTMI CJJSQ01ZM humidifier weighs 3 kilograms, although it is made of plastic. I suspect that a weighting agent is present at the bottom in order to reduce the risk of tipping. Physically, the humidifier consists of three parts, the lower part, the flask and the cap. At the bottom of the control button on switching off and switching modes. Above it are four indicators of operation and the selected mode, minimum, medium and maximum. The bottom LED when white is shining – the normal mode of operation, if the color turns orange, you need to pour water).
Many bright LEDs glow at night annoying and interfere with sleep, for this, on the back side there is a button for changing the brightness or turning off the LEDs on the front panel. Above the button there is a LED indicating the WiFi connection. Maximum brightness. Average, and the next item will be a complete shutdown of the LEDs. The plastic of the case is slightly rough, which allows you to more tenaciously hold a full flask of water with wet hands. The cover in the upper part is not secured in any way, it is just located in a kind of niche. You can run the humidifier without it, but then more dust will fall into the water and the instrument’s operation will be heard louder.
When unpacking, I thought that Xiaomi was already on the path to global economy and began to be limited to only 40 centimeter power cords. But, as far as I understand, due to security reasons, the high-voltage source, the engineers decided to keep away from water, and supplied the humidifier with a separate non-removable power cord with a length of 1.5 meters. Anti-slip feet. Height 33.5 centimeters, diameter 20.5 centimeters. The flask of 3.5 liters has double walls made of transparent plastic. I poured 3.0 liters of water, up to the Max mark, just this 0.5 liter is missing. You can monitor the water level not only in the mobile application, but also just visually using a plastic “window” with a float. Plastic cover on the back. Flask without water.
“Nozzle” from which steam comes out. A valve that prevents water from flowing out while you carry the flask. At the bottom is an ultrasonic evaporator, a humidity sensor, a disinfecting lamp, and a valve “pusher” on the flask. The cover of the disinfecting lamp is attached with a small magnet. in the central part. According to the manufacturer, the lamp can destroy up to 98.8% of bacteria. The float, which is responsible for turning off the humidifier in the absence of water.
Download and install the application MiHome, if before that it was not installed on your smartphone. When connecting, we MUST choose MAIN CHINA. Otherwise there may be problems with the connection. The application will automatically find a new device, you only need to connect it to your WiFi network. The main interface of the program, in the upper part displays the temperature in the room, and in the center in large font current humidity. In the lower curtain, you can turn on or off the humidifier, set the operation mode of the humidifier and various work timers. You can also set the desired value of humidity that the humidifier will support. Like any device from the Xiaomi system, the humidifier has different work scenarios.
Suppose you can not only start the humidifier on an internal timer or if the humidity falls below the selected mark, but also stop working if a door, window, etc. is opened. In the advanced settings, you can create a shortcut on the “desktop” of the smartphone, share control with another user, or check the firmware update.
The humidifier has only three modes of operation, weak, medium and maximum. Accordingly, the amount of steam issued and its height. Minimal mode. Maximum without cover. (Sorry, the trick swam away with the steam) Approximately 80 centimeters of steam rises to the top and then dissipates. The humidifier is installed in the children’s room, which I often call the tryndet. Tryndetskaya is a child’s room, in which toys are scattered randomly, the designer and others are needed now and now the little things of the children. The humidity sensor is built into the humidifier, but it was guided by the sensor from the smart home system installed at the other end of the room.
At maximum mode for 1 hour of operation, the humidifier raised the percentage of humidity from 34% to 48.6%, while the temperature in the room slightly decreased. The sheets under the humidifier are completely dry, not a single drop of water is noticed.
