The future of the connected home accessible will it be on the side of Xiaomi and IKEA ? Based on this new partnership, it would seem that yes ! Two firms who share the same philosophy.
Xiaomi and IKEA, same fight ! It is in any case announced the director of the branch French market of the firm, Yan Liu, at a conference. It must be said that the companies are positioned on the same sector in terms of quality/price ratio – and this is not the great promotion on the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro with fingerprint reader below the screen, which we will say to the contrary. Yan Liu has even explained , “This partnership is no surprise, we share the same values and we are positioned on a grid similar pricing”. Suffice to say that with this work hand in hand, Xiaomi and IKEA intend to deliver the connected home of tomorrow.
But then what exactly is this partnership between the giants ? It’s simple : the bulbs connected to IKEA (Xiaomi manufactures also) can be used via the im application Home. An application allowing the control of the connected devices from the chinese company Xiaomi and that those from IKEA are to join. A good new which strengthens the links between companies who share the same philosophy. For the moment, only China will benefit from this partnership. But with the success of Xiaomi in Europe, we imagine that the IKEA operating via Mi Home will not take long to get to us !
