February 9, 2022 by No Comments

If you’re looking for some of the best smart home products in South Africa to add to your home then we have you covered. While there’s a misconception that smart home products are hard to find in South Africa and overly priced, that isn’t the fact. I have spent the last few months obsessed with finding new devices to add to my life and these will come in handy no matter what you’re looking for.

We also cover where to start when looking for South African smart home products. What hub you’re using, how to find products for it and the most basic of items that slowly ease you into the world of the smart home. Here are some of my suggestions.

Best Smart Home Products Available in South Africa

Xiaomi Mi Essential Smart LED Bulb

  • Available from: Technomobi by clicking here
  • Price: R249

These LED bulbs allow you the option of choosing the perfect colour and brightness for any mood. The bulb barely generates heat, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally touching them if they’re exposed. Because each bulb has built-in Wi-Fi, it can be easily controlled from any smart device. The Xiaomi Home companion app also allows you to set up custom automation and schedules to control the lights on your behalf.

The bulbs also come with voice control features meaning your Apple HomePod, Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa can help you control your lighting using your voice. Each bulb also lasts for years, so you won’t have to worry about constantly having to change out your bulbs.

If you’ve ever wanted a way to change up the entire look and feel of a space, then ligh tstrips are for you. Place them behind the TV to make all your movie nights feel boogie, under the bed to create some floor illumination when you walk around the room at night or use them under the counters in your kitchen for an ethereal glow.

The Xiaomi Yeelight Lightstip Plus is flexible enough to easily mould to any object allowing you to create ambient light in the exact direction you want. It also comes with a controller if you want to control the lights with a press of a button. However, the real magic lies in its Mi Home App integration. Program the lights to switch on or off at specific times, change the brightness and the colour and set up voice commands that allow you to control them using just your voice.

Another added perk is the “extension” system. Let’s say you need 5 meters of lighting, but by default, the Xiaomi Yeelight Lightstip Plus only comes in 2-meter rolls. Well, you can purchase the extension lights (which are considerably cheaper than the initial lights), allowing you to extend the lights up to 10 meters.
