[Review] Mi Motion Activated Night Light 2 | Unboxing Ergonomic Sustainability

A boring light? Nah!
Worried about the safety of your home or just need a device that is easy to use or the one that allows you to illuminate as per your liking? With Mi Motion Activated Night Light 2, you get it all! Not only this, the motion-activated light offers a range of features that will make you fall in love with it. Wondering how? Let's deep dive as I unbox and have a quick look at the features.

Introducing - Mi Motion Activated Night Light 2

The Mi Motion Activated Night Light is ergonomically and functionally one of the best night lights available out there. The biggest offering is, however, the price point at which this device arrives on your doorstep.

The packaging follows a quite similar signature color and design language Xiaomi India has for its accessories products. The orange shades complement well on the Xiaomi branding at the left followed by the product name in all its glory upfront. A representative image of the product appears to be on the lower half which is pretty reasonable and self-explanatory. As far as the packaging goes, anybody will identify the brand easily because of the brilliant design language.

Packaging at the rear and side is where you can see a lot of contrast. The side follows a big trendy text running down screaming the product's name while the rear might cause you some visibility issues. Not because the rear holds up an immense amount of information, but for the lacking negative space. I felt it all right because transparency for consumers should be the priority and Xiaomi always does an incredible job.

Before digging in, let's throw on some light at the device. The ivory white finish throughout is sure to trigger the enthusiast in you. The plastic material is surprisingly sturdy definitely living up to your expectations. I accidentally dropped it from my hand once from a height of about 4 feet and found no discrepancies. On a serious note, this is built like a tank!

Inside the package, you get a User Manual and the device itself along with a magnetic placeholder. Exploring them all together doesn't seem to a good idea so we'll cover them one by one.

  • The User Manual, often ignored by Indians is well prepared and users might find it useful.
  • The domination of Li-ion batteries has not affected this device in particular as you require 3X AA batteries to power it up. However, the package doesn't include any batteries and you have to get them from a store separately.
  • Mobility is often overlooked in the case of such devices leading to a titbit of lack in user experience. The provided magnetic placeholder plays a vital role in this aspect of mobility. In addition, it also comes with adhesive tape for a better grip on any surface you can imagine. These little things genuinely add up to your experience.
  • The device is constructed pretty substantially with astonishing aesthetics but we are missing out on the specifications sheet and oh! here it is.

If you've kept on wondering where the metal sticks to, you've then come to the right place. The rear portion can be separated if you twist and turn a little. The complete housing is plastic build but despite the fact that the rear panel has a metal plate on the inside, the weight is very well maintained.

The most exciting another half, because it's oval, is where the batteries go. I see a very tried and tested clip technique taking over which doubles up as a door for the batteries. Following up on that, a slider switch placed at the right functions similar to an upper dimmer switch at two brightness levels.

Even though the light screams simplicity but the technology behind is right the contrary. The capability of detecting humans in motion depicts how competent it can be. What's even more intriguing is the cost-effective rotate mechanism. I mean would have thought of a 360-degree rotation without a ball and socket. Apart from the rotational advantages, the two levels of brightness give you the best of both worlds.

Speaking of worlds, Sir Isaac Newton is here to talk about Luminosity. Sir Newton says it is a photometric measure of the luminous intensity per unit area of light traveling in a given direction. It describes the amount of light that passes through, is emitted from, or is reflected from a particular area, and falls within a given solid angle. (Please refer to the above image for reference)

The initial impressions have been absolutely fascinating. The device has kept my expectations up throughout and I'm clearly looking forward to an in-depth review of the same.
