Xiaomi’s smart bells are one of the most interesting gadgets you can find for sale by the Asian company. In addition to having a price well below the average, it offers features that only the bells with an absurd price offer.
Apparently the brand is preparing to reveal a new smart doorbell and in addition to a new design, improvements are also expected compared to the predecessor models. The “Xiaomi MIJIA Smart Video Doorbell 2” was crowdfunded on the Youpin website at a generous price!

Xiaomi’s new smart doorbell price
Crowdfunding will start at $ 28 (around 22 €)however, don’t expect this to be the launch value on the online market. Looking at the previous versions, I would say that the new doorbell will arrive with values around 40 €. We still don’t know if it will arrive in UK officially, however, we already have conditions for that with the new official stores of Xiaomi.

What’s missing from these Xiaomi smart bells
Although it is a formidable gadget, looking at previous versions, I really want Xiaomi to solve some details in its smart bells.
One of them is resistance to water and dust. As much as it can withstand some rain, the bells are not suitable for constantly putting in the rain. That is, it is perfect to have inside a porch, however, little advantage to have it on the wall that connects the house to the street.
Then I also feel like having the possibility to contact with wires. For those who do not want to take the time to change batteries every 6 months. I believe that with these two features we would have an even more complete gadget.
