Recently, I begin to design my new house, and I have focused on the smart home design. As there are lots of manufactures which have produced the remote controller, smart home switches and so on, I have been dazzled by those amazing smart home products. However, I have aimed at the Broadlink smart home products, and I got the Broadlink black bean controller to test if the smart home products from Broadlink work well.
As I opened the package, I got that so-called black bean controller. To be honest, I can’t tell why they named it “black bean” from the exterior of the Broadlink black bean controller. However, the product in solid black is much smaller than I had thought it would be. In my opinion, this device is adorable with its tiny size, but I don’t think it’s the most fashionable design or eye-catching design I have ever seen.
Aside from the appearance of the Broadlink black bean, what we concern the most will be its functionality. I just skip the installation, since the installations from different remote controllers wouldn’t quite different. However, the installation is quite easy with the English version in the app. Through the app, we could connect all the devices that could be turn on by infrared ray, like the television, air-conditioner, and other electric devices.
As everything would have its drawbacks and advantages, this one does too. I bet its workmanship could be improved in not only the exterior but also the details like the interface of the power cable, which has cost me lots of time to plug in. And there is a great big problem that I couldn’t back up all the set up I made through the app. However, the price of such a smart device is quite attractive, and it’s easy to install and use as well. And the reason why I would recommend this one to you is that it works quite well wherever I put it. So, now it’s time for you to make your decision.
