Smart lighting has become a popular trend for homeowners looking to enhance their home’s ambiance and functionality. However, if you’re searching for a unique lighting solution, you might want to consider the Yeelight Cube. Created by Yeelight, a sub-brand of Xiaomi, this cube-shaped smart lamp offers a fun and customizable lighting experience that you can keep on your desk or table.
Debuting at CES and earning a spot on our list of the best products of CES 2023, the Yeelight Cube is available in three versions: Spot, Matrix, and Panel. To get started, connect one of the cubes to a powered dock and add up to five more cubes, creating a line or tower of lights using magnets. Each light is hot-swappable, so you can mix and match styles without any effort.
The spot features a light on top that bounces dynamic lighting around the room, while Matrix allows you to control various light dots on the cube’s front. Finally, the Panel has a simple front-facing panel that you can customize with different colors and brightness levels.
Using the Yeelight Station app, available for Android, IOS, and Windows, you can control everything, including preset scenes like a rainbow wave or mimicking fire. The app is easy to use, allowing you to create and edit custom scenes with ease. The Yeelight Cube is also Matter-capable right out of the box, meaning it works with all smart homes, regardless of your current platform.
Connecting the Yeelight Cube to Google Assistant-powered smart homes is simple by using the Google Home app, which involves scanning a Matter QR code printed on the dock. Once connected, you can use Google Assistant voice commands to turn the Yeelight Cube on or off and add it to a room.
At present, the Yeelight Cube is an Indiegogo product, with a Starter Kit available for a discounted “Super Early Bird” price of $114. The Starter Kit includes a dock and one of each of the three cube styles, saving you over 33% off future retail pricing. Yeelight Cube smart lamp is available for shipping worldwide, including to the United States, with shipments beginning in April 2023.
The Yeelight Cube offers a unique and customizable lighting solution that can enhance any workstation or home. Whether you’re looking for dynamic lighting effects or a simple, stylish lighting panel, the Yeelight Cube has something for everyone.
