NOW THAT THE Mi Robot Vacuum has got rid of all that dust and cat hair from your room, it’s time to freshen the air with its companion device, the Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier 2S.
Also part of Xiaomi’s Mi Ecosystem series, the 2S is quite large – all the better to clear the air – with a footprint of 240x240x520mm and a weight of 4.5 kg.
The air in a 21sqm to 37sqm room takes just 10 minutes to purify at the rate of 310 cubic metres of air per hour.
To present an accurate air quality reading, the Mi Air Purifier 2S uses a high-precision laser particle sensor that can quickly determine PM2.5 levels and 0.3-micron particles.
A combination of a Nidec brushless DC motor, axial fans, mixed flow blades and tapered airducts provide the aerodynamic pressure system behind the Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) and the 360-degree circulation for strong air flow.
Air is drawn inward at the base and clean air is expelled upward.
The 2S uses triple-layer filtration consisting of a primary filter, a high-density EPA filter and an activated carbon filter.
The primary filter can remove larger particles such as dust, hair and pollen, while the EPA takes out respirable particles like PM2.5, PM0.3-0.5 and smaller pollen, and the activated carbon filter blocks odours.
The purifier comes with an oled screen that display real-time air quality data, Wi-Fi connection status, as well as room temperature and humidity.
The room’s air quality status is shown in three colours, and a light sensor enables the 2S to adjust its screen brightness for daylight viewing or night mode.
The Air Purifier also has built-in Wi-Fi that can be connected to your home Wi-Fi router so that you can remotely control it with Xiaomi’s Mi Home app.
You can use the app to turn the air purifier on or off and view real-time air quality data. You can also use the app to switch modes from Auto, Sleep, and High Speed and monitor the filters’ usage.
To connect it to the app, you need to press and hold the Mode and Light buttons for five seconds. The Wi-Fi icon on the display of the device will blink and the app will find it and add it as your Mi device.
Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier 2S has a suggested retail price of Bt5,990.
