With different tasks requiring different light intensities, Philips EyeCare connected desk lamp allows light to be personalized to deliver different light levels. By collecting and processing light signals through a light sensor and the smartphone camera, Philips EyeCare connected desk lamp uses a patented light calibration algorithm to optimize the light when working or reading to maximize eye comfort. All you need to do is simply tap one button to connect the desk lamp to the Xiaomi smart home app.

“We have teamed up with Xiaomi, China’s largest and one of the world’s top five manufacturers of smartphones, to deliver this exciting innovation” says Olivia Qiu, Head of Innovation at Philips Lighting. “Philips recognizes the benefit of combining expertise and skills to deliver country specific innovations that really impact people’s lives. The Philips EyeCare connected desk lamp is a great example of this in China.”

Liu De, Co-Founder and Vice President of Xiaomi, said, “We’re glad to collaborate with Philips, the world’s leader in lighting, who launched this innovative connected desk lamp in the online store of Xiaomi. This lamp can seamlessly connect with Xiaomi’s smart home ecosystem, creating a superb experience for our users. We believe this collaboration between the two strong companies is sure to improve the attraction of Xiaomi’s smart home platform, as well as its user experience.”

By using Philips latest Advanced Optical Lens Technology, the Philips EyeCare connected desk lamp reduces glare; and by using the Xiaomi Smart Home app users can adjust to the correct level of illumination needed, preventing unnecessary eye strain. It also eliminates light shining directly into the eyes with even light distribution, providing a more comfortable reading experience. The result is less eye strain, less eye fatigue and more ease on the eyes without any compromise on light quality.

Furthermore, the Philips EyeCare connected desk lamp can connect with other Xiaomi smart home devices through the cloud, enabling interaction with other connected devices. For example, Philips EyeCare connected desk lamp can connect to Xiaomi door sensors and body sensors to deliver dynamic new lighting experiences at home. With lighting considered to be the foundation of the Internet of Things, collaborations such as Philips EyeCare connected desk lamp  illustrate how Philips is leading the shift to connected lighting for the home, delivering new experiences to enhance the way we live.

The Philips EyeCare connected desk lamp has completed crowdfunding through the Mi Store on the Xiaomi Smart Home App, and supports smartphones operating on Android 4.0 and IOS 7.0 and their upgraded versions. Philips EyeCare connected desk lamp will be available via Mi Store from January 2016, the online retailing platform of Xiaomi.
