Apple HomePod mini smart speaker should be a good start if you want to built a smart home system based on Apple HomeKit. Let’s have a look if you like the idea.
The HomePod mini measures 3.9 inches diameter by 3.3 inches high and weighs 0.76 pounds. Compared with the cylindrical HomePod, the mini version delivers a sleek spherical design, and it’s wrapped in a mesh fabric with two classic optional colors: black and white, so it always fits anywhere in your house.
Apple HomePod mini comes equipped with an Apple-designed full-range driver with force-cancelling passive radiators, and it features an Apple S5 chip to give you balanced and fine-tuned 360-degree sound at any volume using complex algorithms. You can also pair two HomePod mini speakers for more immersive stereo audio.
With four microphones with noise cancellation, the smart home speaker always clearly receives your voice, and built-in Siri allows it to give you quick response such as playing music, read news, check traffic, interacting with compatible smart home devices and more.
Using voice recognition, the smart speaker home gives each family member a personalized experience, and its intercom feature allows you to communicate with your family members by using more than one HomePod units.
