Mijia Bedside Lamp 2 Review :-
From the name you can guess that it’s a second generation lamp from Mijia. The lamp is manufactured by Yeelight which is popular for making affordable smart lighting products. Their first generation bedside lamp did very well in the market and the second generation variant took a long time to arrive. Now let us take a look at how it actually performs.
Design And Build Quality :-
Build quality is a serious point to consider when we are buying a desk lamp. Thankfully the Mijia Bedside Lamp 2 offers a solid build quality. It comes with a flat white look and the bottom bezels have been trimmed down a lot from the previous generation. This enhances its looks and gives more room for reflecting lights. The whole body is made of plastic and it’s neither heavy nor light. I personally like the way it weighs. On the bottom, you will get a soft rubber padding which helps this lamp to grip to the surface. It comes with a power adapter which is vertical in shape. This is very practical considering it takes very less place in electric boards. Now if you live in countries like India then you will have to buy a compatible or universal plug adapter. You can easily find one on Amazon.
How To Setup :-
Now setting this Mijia Bedside Lamp 2 is very easy. Just connect the power adapter to a switch on your power source. Then on the front of the lamp, you will find a controller slider. Tap on the bottom button and the lamp will turn on. By default, it will have a Warm White Color. Now dragging the slider you will be able to control its brightness level. It’s very responsive and works instantly. Now a very good thing is that you can tap at anywhere on the slider to turn this lamp on which is super handy in dark situations. You can tap the top button to change into different temperatures of White. You can change it to 4 times. If you tap and hold on this button then it will change into colors. You can customize those colors later. You can also tap and hold the Power button to trigger the countdown mode. Which means that after 15 minutes your lamp will be turned off automatically (Can be customized as well).
Connecting The Mi Bedside Lamp 2 To Yeelight App :-
Now since this lamp is manufactured by Yeelight, so you can connect this lamp to your Yeelight app as well. The app is available for both Android and iOS. (REMEMBER :- The lamp can be connected to Mi Home App as well.)
- Turn on Bluetooth setting on your smartphone.
- Make sure you have a Wifi Conncetion/ Hotspot.
- Open the Yeelight app and login with your Mi Account.
- Connect to the Singapore Server.
- Search for the Lamp 2 in the devices section.
You need to turn on Bluetooth only the time during the setup. Later you can turn it off. Now in the App, you get a ton of settings. Firstly you will see many presets like Reading, Romantic, Party, Dinner mode etc. You can select those as you wish. You can Turn On/Off the lamp using the App. You can also adjust the brightness settings from here. You can select to different temperatures of White from the White tab. In the Colors tab, you can select to 16 million different colors shades. In the Flow tab, you can create of flow of 4 different colors. You can also adjust the flow speed if you want. There is a timer setting as well which you can create to automate the Mijia Bedside Lamp 2.
The automation doesn’t stop here. You can connect the Mijia Bedside Lamp 2 to Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa as well. For me both of these automation are doing perfectly. You can also connect it to “Apple Homekit” but I don’t own one so can’t comment about that.
Color Accuracy And Brightness :-
Now as the name suggests, its a bedside lamp. This lamp is ideal for a dim light in night time or ambient light during movies, dinner etc. The brightness is well enough for reading but you can’t expect it to lighten your whole room primarily. The lowest brightness level is also very dim. The light is very soft and doesn’t hurt your eyes. In terms of color accuracy I found it quite good.
Final Conclusion and Price :-
So overall we definitely recommend the Mijia Bedside Lamp 2 in case you are looking for a smart lamp. The automation makes it even more worth to buy. It’s available on Banggood for $49.99 (Rs. 3,500) and you won’t have to pay any customs charges. You can also get it from Mi.com. Also, Banggood accepts UPI and Paytm so payment shouldn’t be a problem for you. So let us know how did you like our Mijia Bedside Lamp 2 Review.
