Chinese company Xiaomi, more known for its smartphones, produces many gadgets for the concept of a smart home. Among them, for example, floor scales, lamps, air fresheners, speakers, etc. Recently it became known that the company will release a new gadget from the field of the Internet of things – an intelligent trash can. Townew T1 Touchless Automatic Motion Sensor Trash Can from Xiaomi Youpin recognize the approach of a person to a distance of 35 cm and open the lid, and then tightly close it, so as not to spread the unpleasant odor from household waste.
The Townew Smart Trash Can have a reduced size of 24 x 31 x 40 cm and a limited capacity of 15.5 L, intended rather for the bathroom than the kitchen. Its simple design presents the usual finish in white ABS plastic. it has a proximity sensor and an actuator responsible for the automatic opening and closing of the damper. When we approach the distance from 0 to 35 cm, the damper will open automatically, but this is not the only “smart” function.
A much more interesting option is automatic garbage packaging. The trash can notify by means of LED diodes when the garbage bag is full and automatically closes it so that we do not have to get our hands dirty. It will even handle things that will stick out of the basket, then automatically replace the bag. Loads a new one, and we’ll have to pull the old one out. The battery is powered by a 12v battery, 2.2Ah which can be recharged for 10 hours. Charged to the full enough on the 35 days of waking. The used flap effectively blocks the unpleasant odor.
