Today, Xiaomi issued a statement through its Weibo channel, unleashing a new smart home product, namely the Xiaomi zero intelligent video doorbell. This product is currently open in the crowdfunding at a starting price of 199 yuan that is around $29 (the crowdfunding price of the doorbell set with the indoor receiver is 229 yuan ($33).
The Xiaomi zero intelligent video doorbell can automatically detect door abnormality. It is equipped with a custom PIR human body sensor. And there is also a Zero MotionClips detection shooting function. So when someone is within 3 meters outside the door, the doorbell immediately starts shooting a short video and sends a notification to your smartphone.
Based on Xiaomi AI face recognition technology, the Xiaomi zero intelligent video doorbell can accurately identify your family members and strangers. It will mention them in the notification. Thus, you can know who is at the door, without looking at the picture.
What we liked more, is the special kid’s mode. If the child is alone at home, you can not only take over the direct video conversation with the visitors outside the door but also command the Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Speaker to remind the baby not to open the door to strangers.
Moreover, the Xiaomi zero intelligent video doorbell also supports voice-changing intercom. When a girl is alone at home, she can enter the intercom mode through the smartphone app to change the voice to the male voice.
At last, the Xiaomi Zero Intelligent Video Doorbell uses a low-power design, and the 4-cell battery can achieve a long-term battery life of 6 months. The secret of power saving lies in the FastWake function. When the doorbell is triggered, it quickly starts shooting and completes the video upload. After, it quickly enters the low power mode.
