Xiaomi kettle setting up, phone connection
The modern world is gradually moving to a situation where each household device will be part of one large ecosystem, which is called “Internet of things”.
In this article I will show how to set up an electric kettle of Xiaomi and connect it to the Bluetooth phone in order to make the necessary changes in the configuration of its work and remotely control the boiling water.
The Xiaomi Mi Kettle kettle does not just boil water, as all the others do, it can track the temperature of the water and has several operating modes that are suitable for different situations.
For example, if you poured raw water, even filtered, it must be brought to 100 degrees to guarantee to kill the entire probable pathogenic microflora and not get sick.
But if you use previously boiled water, it is not necessary to boil, you can heat it to 80 or 90 degrees.
By the way, you noticed that many recipes for brewing tea specifically indicate that boiling water cannot be used, it spoils tea, makes it tart, bitter and changes the chemical composition of the released essential oils.
It is in order to correctly brew rare or love tea, you need to connect the Xiaomi kettle to the smartphone and get the opportunity to indicate the desired water temperature to achieve the best result.
Kettle control through the Mi Home application
After connecting the electric kettle to the smartphone, the same, early non.affordable functionality will open before you, thanks to which the device wears the proud console “Smart”. It is worth noting that the intensity of the kettle management application is intuitive and easy to use.
At the top of the main page in large numbers, the current water temperature in the kettle was noted. Depending on the temperature level, the upper panel can change its color from blue (if the water is cold) to red (when the water is heated).
Directly under the panel with temperature indicators, there is a slider of time with which you can activate the function of “maintaining heat” (Keep Warm Time) from 1 to 12 hours. The menu below contains the same temperature parameters that will be maintained due to this option. The icon of each option illustrates the drink for which the presented temperature is characteristic. By default, the values of 90, 80 and 50 degrees are available, but independent adjustment is also possible, which is tuned through the slider under the icons or through the “more” tab.
At the bottom of the working screen, the user will open a choice for installing one of two modes: “cool to a given temperature” and “heat to a given temperature”. The first regime involves heating water before boiling and subsequent cooling to the selected level with maintaining this temperature. The second regime heats water without boiling to a pre.set temperature and supports it.

Electrician operation advice
These devices are used daily, so if they are abandoned, they quickly fail. The following recommendations will help to prevent a breakdown of dummies:
- Check the case for leaks: fill it with water, wipe it dry and put on a paper towel. If after 15-20 minutes there are no wet spots on it, the kettle is whole. Otherwise, you need to contact the service center in order to prevent a short circuit.
- Do not remove the kettle from the stand to the automatic or manual shutdown of the button. With non.compliance with this rule, electrical contacts are damaged, which are difficult to restore.
- Do not cook food in the device. Particles of food stick to the heater and provoke its breakdown.
- Pour water so that the heating element inside the body is completely covered with water.
- Follow the appearance of a layer of scale on an electric heater, which at the same time begins to heat itself, which leads to a breakdown of the device. The plaque is formed due to the crystallization of calcium and magnesium salts located in water, especially stiff, when it is heated. The more sediment, the more difficult it is to eliminate it. For the prevention of plaque, it is recommended to use purified water. There are ways to combat a scope at home.
It is time to teach Chinese
An anecdote that the pessimist teaches Chinese is already so bearded that the author cannot be found. Only now he began to understand that the study of Chinese is more likely a harsh necessity than the whim of teachers and popularizers of Chinese culture.
This is all to the fact that the kettle came in beautiful packaging, with detailed instructions, many inscriptions on the case without a single English symbol! Everything is only hieroglyphs. There are no mnemonic icons. By the method of scientific poke, it was possible to establish that the button closer to the case (sensory, by the way) is responsible for turning on and heated before a boil. What’s next? Unknown. At the time of receipt of the device of information in Russian and English, no.
From memory of the work of other devices, Xiaomi launched an official application for a smart home Mihome and tried to click the second button. The kettle made a pleasant, quiet squeak, blinked with an LED, and effect 0.
There is not a word of English on the page of adding a new device. There is no MIKETTLE device. (I know about the methods of Russification, the installation of the right region did not help. The first batch. torment to fans.) What to do?

Smart kettle and Alice
Smart House from Yandex supports synchronization with many devices of Xiaomi. All compatible devices can be connected to Alice’s voice assistant and control. But, with regard to smart teapots, at the moment the support of these devices is under development. The official list of compatible devices is available on Yandex.Markete and constantly expanding.
