Let there be light

Smart bulbs that can change colour and dim on the fly are often the centrepiece of a smart home, but most big-name brands don't come cheap. Chinese tech giant Xiaomi, which has a bit of a reputation for combining quality with affordability, wants to change that by introducing its Mi LED Smart Bulb to India. The  bulb features 16 million colour variations and supports customised lighting scenes and music sync functionality. It's also Wi-Fi enabled and compatible with both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, and crucially doesn't need syncing up to a central hub. That means you can just plug it in and enjoy some sumptuous mood lighting right off the bat. Perfect. Xiaomi says it'll unveil its pricing and availability post April 26.
