Unlike previous product launches accompanied by fanfare and heavy hype, Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi today unveiled four smart home gadgets on its microblog, in a relatively low-profile rollout. The four products are the Ants smart camera, Xiaomi smart socket, Yeelight light and Xiaomi smart remote control center.

Ants is a smart camera featuring 720P HD live video stream, 110-degree wide angle and 4x zoom. With embedded microphone and speaker, Ants supports two-way remote dialogue, while Xiaomi smart socket enables users to power on and off remotely, and it has a USB port.

Yeelight is a Bluetooth 4.0-powered smart bulb which users can adjust for color and brightness via a dedicated smartphone app. Developed by appcessory solution provider Yeelink, Yeelight will be on sale at Xiaomi’s e-commerce platforms very soon.
