Smart Light Strip and Smart Outlet, Smart Home Solutions from Koogeek

On some occasion we have already seen some of the products that the Koogeek firm has available for us and that help us make our home smarter, and few offer so much connectivity and compatibility for less money. For this reason, and especially because in Actualidad Gadget we are putting a lot of emphasis on the demotic thanks to the arrival of Google Home, Alexa and Siri, discover our new analysis.

We have in our hands the Smart Light Strip and the Smart Outlet, a smart LED strip and a smart power strip that can solve many problems for you. So stick around because we're going to take a pretty thorough look at both devices.

Smart Light Strip - An LED strip that can do anything

We start with the Smart Light Strip, a Koogeek LED strip that comes as a direct alternative to those offered by brands such as Xiaomi or Philips, being cheaper than the alternatives and above all more compatible. We are going to analyze some of the main characteristics one by one without too much complication, and we take the opportunity to leave you a video of the iPhone News colleagues in which we can see the Koogeek Smart Light Strip in operation to get a slight idea of ​​what its capabilities. No products found.

Technical and material characteristics

In the box we get a 2 meter strip with the classic instruction booklet, little more. The reality is that Koogeek does not throw much fanfare for its packaging, and the truth is that we appreciate it, it is simple, resistant and careful, without more. For its part, as we have said, it has a total length of two meters and to power it it has a standard USBC cable of 5V to 2A, remember that the package does not include any type of adapter to the network, this is perhaps the most negative, although it also has the benefit of not having a proprietary connection, and who does not have a USB adapter these days around the house?

The total power is 10W, consumption is definitely not going to be a concern, A +++ energy efficiency according to the house, but hey, they are LEDs, we shouldn't expect anything else. Lighting capacity reaches 500lm Which is not bad at all, especially since Xiaomi's Yeelight, for example, offers only 200lm. As it could not be different in a product like this, we can alternate a combination of up to 16 million different colors. The materials are what you would expect from Koogeek, we have first quality and an adhesive strip on the back that will allow us to stick the LED strip wherever we want without any complications.

Compatibility and user experience

This device can work autonomously without the need for any type of WiFi or Smartphone connection because it has its own controller with a button on one end, this is appreciated when we have connectivity problems. However, its qualities improve thanks to its absolute compatibility with HomeKit, Alexa and Google Home, where you will hardly have limits. Setting it up is quite easy through the Koogeek application and then you just have to let yourself be carried away by the possibility of its color wheel and brightness power. Personally, after having tried many similar products from different brands, I opted for the Koogeek strip as the best on the market in terms of compatibility, quality and above all price. No products found.

Koogeek Smart Outlet - One Power Strip with Integrated Charger

What if we want to manage multiple product connections that are not "smart"? Well, nothing better than a smart power strip. Koogeek knows that there are many of these already available on the market, perhaps that is why it has preferred to add an accessory not present in other products, we have two standard chargers for the iPhone and another for the iPad with high amperage. Let's take a look though if you want,No products found.

Technical and material characteristics

As always an austere packaging with the strip and the instruction book, we will not need anything else. It should be noted, as we have said a few lines above that We have three USB ports, two of 5V and 1A and a third with an extra charge of 5V and 2.1A recommended to charge products such as the iPad, that need more charging power. The cable to plug in and power the power strip has a total length of 1,5 meters, although the length of the power strip is also 275mm and 70mm, the reality is that despite all the technology that "hides" it is no more larger than any other standard strip that only serves to plug devices without more. The height of the strip has a total height of 48mm and ends up offering a total weight of just over half a kilogram, exactly 693 grams.

It is made of a plastic soft white in color, while the cabling inevitably reminds us of Apple's for the quality of the rubber and its grayish color. Without a doubt, Koogeek never compromises on the quality of the materials. Another point to highlight is that the connections to the network (3 AC ports up to 3000W) have the classic protection system for children and at the same time prevent dirt from entering. It is fully compatible with any of the usual plugs in Spain. Koogeek materials have a very clear approval.

Compatibility and user experience

At the device load level, we remember that it has MFi certificationThis means that its ports are certified by Apple which guarantees a minimum of quality and security. For its part, at the level of compatibility, it is possible to have management through HomeKit, Alexa and Google Home, despite the fact that each connection to the network has its own button that allows you to activate and deactivate it, in case we simply want a quality strip.
