IFA 2018: Lenovo supply the basics with new Smart Essentials range

Lenovo are expanding their presence in the smart home space with a new Smart Home Essentials range and Lenovo Link app.

At present, the Smart Essential range consists of the following:

  • The Lenovo Smart Plug
  • The Lenovo Smart Camera
  • The Lenovo Smart Bulb

Lenovo say that their entire Smart Home Essentials range is compatible with both the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

However, Lenovo are also launching a new Lenovo Link App that promises to act as a "centralized control center" for automation and smart home users.

The Lenovo Link app allows users to set up and control all their smart home devices from a single interface, rather than juggle between different apps.

Lenovo Australia tell us that local pricing and availability will arrive at a later date.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
