The Xiaomi Mi Home iHealth Thermometer was officially released during the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 Conference earlier this year and has proven to compare quite favorably to the current market offering. Mostly, thanks to its high-efficiency, accuracy, and advanced measurement techniques. But exactly what does this mean for your home? Let’s find out.

Super accurate fever detector

Fevers are no fun. And while us, adults, have already accepted the sad course of action when we get the fever, the story is quite different when it comes to kids.

If you have a child, you know how hard it can be to simply take his or her temperature — and it’s understandable. Who wants to feel a mercilessly cold thermometer under one’s arm or have one inserted into your ear canal? Brrr.

Yep, kids don’t like those thermometers. But can we really blame them?


But the horror does not have to continue.


The Xiaomi Mi Home iHealth Thermometer is a non-contact infrared thermometer that doesn’t need to go anywhere on or in your body to give an accurate measurement. More than that, it even looks friendly — unlike those monster thermometers from our childhood.


While some are reluctant to use non-contact thermometers in fear of compromising accuracy — this is not all the case with the Xiaomi Mi Home iHealth Thermometer​. Thanks to the advanced German Heimann Thermopile Sensor, the iHealth improves the measuring accuracy to 0.2 degrees Celsius.


Just as the iHealth’s ad proudly states — this thermometer was “born” for fever!


Faster! Only one second to take the temperature

When you have a fever, every second can feel like an hour. That’s why we often fall asleep when using the common mercury-in-glass thermometer. In contrast, the Xiaomi Mi Home iHealth thermometer takes only one second to make an accurate measurement — plus, you won’t have to squint to read your measurements — it will be conveniently displayed on the mini LED screen.


Healthier! Safe and hygienic use for the whole family

The non-contact design is one of the thermometer’s main selling points — and it is possible thanks to its advanced infrared sensor. There is absolutely no need for contact with the skin — you just need to place the thermometer within 3cm to the forehead and your measurement will be ready in seconds! Thus, the non-contact design can efficiently eliminate cross infection when used for multiple users (which is common for contact thermometers). So, all the family can safely use the Xiaomi Mi Home iHealth Thermometer without a shadow of worry.


Gentler! Noiseless vibration reminder

No parent will risk leaving a fevered child sleeping alone through the night and you will probably take regular temperature measurements as your child is sleeping. However, most digital thermometers announce that their measurement is ready with an annoyingly loud buzz that is sure to wake up your child. Thankfully, the Xiaomi Mi Home iHealth Thermometer features noiseless vibration reminder that will alert you that the measurement is ready discreetly.


What’s more, as we’ve mentioned earlier, the iHealth Thermometer is designed in the elegant shape of a handset and comes with a 15.5-degree comfortable handle — your kids may even take it for a toy phone.
