I have to admit that from this year, smart hardware is getting closer and closer to people’s lives. The most watched in the field of intelligent hardware is the smart home. Because compared to the creation needs of wearables, living appliances are already a huge market. The current smart home products are mainly to transform the original products or cater to new needs. This depends on more grounded. In fact, many consumers have a great opportunity to start with smart hardware starting from smart home products. Perhaps it is routing, perhaps TV, and now it may be an electric kettle. This time Lei Technology brings you the evaluation of “ISMAL Little Smart Intelligent Electric Call” (hereinafter referred to as “Xiaozhi”).
Although it is an intelligent electric kettle, the packaging is still very simple, but the large white word on the top of the packaging states that “Xiaozhi” is the first smart electric kettle in China. Then there are QR codes of Tmall stores and official websites on the side, and the rest are not much fancy.
After opening the packaging, you can see the true body of “Xiaozhi”. There are only two components in the entire product, which are bases and kettles. When Xiaobian was about to find a manual to download the app, he found that the whole box could not be found after turning the entire box. This may be because this is the reason for testing the prototype (because the warranty card is not found), or it may be that the manufacturer believes that its own products are simple enough and no instructions are required. After downloading the app, you need to scan the official website of the official website of the packaging box. After logging in to the official website, download on the download page of the website. This experience is actually not good. Here, Xiaobian still suggested that the manufacturer add a small note that can directly scan the download of the app, or improve it slightly in the outer packaging.
The first is a competent electric kettle
First put aside the tall term “intelligence”. The essence of “Xiaoshi” is still an electric kettle, so its basic functions need to pass first, and “intelligence” is only a means to improve its user experience.
“Xiaozhi” is composed of a base with a kettle+WiFi function. The metal part is made of food -grade stainless steel, while the glass part is made of high borosilicate heat -resistant glass. The overall design is very atmospheric and a sense of technology. [WIFI] and [Preference] The two metal buttons are very eye -catching, showing the identity of its smart kettle, while the “Insulation” button indicates the insulation function of “Xiaozhi”.
As an electric kettle, the design of “Xiaozhi” is also in place. The pot body can see the heating and boiling of water transparent. The top cover can be pressed to lock the pot body to prevent the pot cover from falling off when the water is poured. In addition, “Xiaozhi” uses the British imported Strix temperature controller, which has multiple automatic power -off protection functions to prevent accidents.
The power of “Xiaozhi” is 2000W, 1.7L capacity. Xiaobian tried to boil a pot of water, which took about 3 minutes and 50 seconds, which was quite fast. High -power, fast -boiling help to save power, and can also bring a better water -burning experience.
In summary, even as an ordinary electric kettle, “Xiaozhi” is also very competent. The basic requirements of completing the electric kettle are excellent. As an ordinary electric kettle, it is very competitive. What we have to watch next is the “small wisdom” intelligence side.
Intelligence is for better drinking water
“Xiaozhi” uses Shanghai Qingke Mixchip’s Easy-Link technology and Broadcom’s WiFi chip to achieve WIFI networking. And “Xiaozhi” also has its clear positioning in terms of intelligence -to solve some pain points in the use of electric kettle through the Internet. Next, Xiaobian came slowly for everyone:
, WIFI connection is convenient but not perfect.
The WiFi configuration of “Xiaozhi” is actually very simple. After opening the APP, there will be guidance to gradually guide users to complete the configuration. In fact, you only need to enter the password of the WIFI on the app side, and then press the [WIFI] button on “Little Zhi” until the button flickered, the app clicks [OK], the system will automatically match and let “Xiaozhi” connect to WiFi. Then enter a 6 -bit management password to complete the network.
But a little bit here. Because Xiaobian’s home uses 2.4G/5G smart routing, and the long -term home is connected to the frequency band of 5G. It was only discovered that it did not support 5G during the pairing of “Xiaozhi”. This did not prompt in the system, only prompting “no kettle”. Although this is certainly not defective, because the AC dual -frequency route is not yet popular, but as the shipments of smart AC dual -frequency routing such as Xiaomi and 360 are getting larger and larger, the support for 5G is still a trend. Or consider more in the prompts of the app.
, Remote control is very convenient
After the pairing is successful and connected, you can enter the APP’s operating interface. The interface of the APP is very concise. In the middle is a large water temperature and state display, and the bottom is a fast -operated navigation button. The buttons in the lower left corner are automatically adapted to the user’s mode frequency, which means that the app has always provided users with the two most commonly used water -burning mode.
The operation is simpler. Select the mode you want, or click the [Boil] and [Insulation] button directly, and the kettle will immediately respond to start work. Users can see the changes in water temperature through the app and what model they are currently selected. When the water is boiled, the app will emit a ringtone like a text message and send a message in the notification bar to remind the user.
When the kettle leaves the base, the APP will also have relevant information reminders and prohibit users from operating. This is for security considerations, which is very intimate.
The true core of intelligence -the main mode of multi -mode, healthy water -burning mode
Some users may say that since I take the kettle with water to burn, just click the [Boil] button. Why do you need to control remote control? Isn’t this one fell swoop? In fact, “Xiaozhi” is not to solve the problem of operation, but to solve the problem of the public’s healthy drinking water.
In addition to the operation of the “Xiaozhi” APP, there are up to 18 kinds of water roasted mode, including baby milk powder, green tea, black tea, and morning drinking water.
In the baby milk powder mode, there are more than 32 milk powder brands, which meets the requirements of different tuning methods of different brands of milk powder. Green tea, black tea and other models are paired with different varieties of tea. Xiaobian is thinking that adding a tea advertisement here may not have a business model.
One of the characteristics of “Xiaozhi” is the “purification” function. Domestic tap water will basically remain chlorine, and “small wisdom” can set the purification duration through the APP, and then use a continuous boiling method to achieve chloride.
Accurate temperature control is also a major feature of “small wisdom”. The smart crystal silicon temperature control system can accurately read the water temperature in the kettle, so the insulation function of “Xiaozhi” can accurately control the water temperature.
The accurate water temperature can ensure that the nutritional content of milk powder is not destroyed, and the chlorine removal can ensure the health of the BB. The insulation function can make the parents from raising the milk powder at night. The purpose of “Xiaozhi” is to solve the daddy when the dad wants to charge the BB milk powder, the water is not burned or the water is boiled for a long time to reach the suitable water temperature and other pain points. of.
In the morning, the water mode can be preset. When the network is connected, the work will be automatically started after the system arrives, and it will ensure that you drink water at the right water temperature when you get up.
There is also some healthy drinking knowledge in the “Xiaozhi” app, which can be described as very intimate.
Disadvantages of beauty
In addition to the non -instructions mentioned above and do not support issues such as WIFI 5G bands, there are still many places to optimize the APP.
1. For example, milk powder is not supported at present, and it does not support the preset time. In fact, Xiaobian believes that BB’s parents often need to raise milk powder at night, and it is normal to forget to reinstate the water burn mode for a while. It is better if you can preset a complete, full -length water -burning mode at one time.
2. In addition, the current sharing function simply share the official website to the mainstream social platform. Wouldn’t it be better if you can let your dads share his experience?
3. As for the [Preference] button, due to the lack of relevant instructions, it is difficult for users to find their role or how to operate.
“Xiaozhi” is undoubtedly very competent as a electric kettle, and as a intelligent electric kettle, it has its own ideas and characteristics. The method of built -in water -roasted mode does solve the pain points often encountered in the process of taking care of BB. Functions such as water purification and precision temperature control have also greatly increased the added value of “small wisdom” to consumers. “Xiaozhi” will soon be officially released, and interested friends can pay attention to it.
