All About Xiaomi: Smart Homes and Cool Tech

Chinese culture and society have long been one of my interests, and it’s been fascinating to observe how the country has developed over the past 20 plus years. I’ve also been working in the Chinese high-tech sector for several years, and it’s been extremely enlightening to be on the ground in China, and watch how continued technological innovations have impacted the Chinese people and their society.

When it comes to the important technologies that Chinese companies are working on right now, we can see a number of industries that Westerners may have assumed were being solely led by their own countries. But things like solar power, artificial intelligence, electric cars, and phones have all seen impressive developments from Chinese firms. Which leads me to the subject of today’s post, a Chinese company called Xiaomi, which has been making exciting advances in the smart home and Internet of Things spaces.

I previously started using Xiaomi products a few years ago following a recommendation by a friend. Since then, I have become both a fan of their affordable products as well as their connected ecosystem, which in my experience far surpasses in scope that of their closest overseas competitors. In the below video I share the founding story of Xiaomi, the type of products they offer, and how they are doing more to bring their company to overseas markets.

I hope you’ll take the time to watch for a few minutes and learn about this exciting Chinese company and everything they are doing to further connect consumers’ lives.

Thanks for watching!
