There are multiple ambient lighting presets, something Xiaomi calls mood settings. The Mi Smart Bedside Lamp 2 also lets users set schedules and enable the transient Flow mode.
The Mi Smart Bedside Lamp 2 is priced at Rs. 2,299 and will start shipping starting December 3. Xiaomi has set a goal of 2,000 units for crowdfunding, and once there are enough backers, it might be available via open sale model in the future. At the time of writing this story, Xiaomi has achieved 3 percent of its crowdfunding goal for the Mi Smart Bedside Lamp 2. However, keep in mind that there are only 7 days left for potential buyers to pledge their backing.
