Google Nest Hub Max

I always wanted the Google Nest Hub Max but it is expensive, retailing at US$229 (S$309) and excluding shipping charges to Singapore.

I chanced upon the Google Nest Hub Max on Project KR on Lazada having a flash sale, and after collecting all the Lazada vouchers for their 2/2 sales, I paid S$255.60, which I think is a reasonable price.

Sonoff NSPanel Smart Scene Wall Switch Review

I backed the Sonoff NSPanel Smart Scene Wall Switch when it was a Kickstarter project back in October 2021.

My pledge level is the “Flash Sale – NSPanel,” where I paid HK$389 (S$68) for the Sonoff NSPanel, and shipping to Singapore cost me HK$94 (S$17). So in total, I paid HK$483 (S$85).

Sonoff RM 433 Multipurpose Custom Remote Controller

My MCO light switch in my Kitchen and Games Room decided to give up connecting to Z-Wave, so I replaced it with Sonoff T2UK Wi-Fi Smart Wall Switches.

I still find Wi-Fi is more reliable for me than Z-Wave thanks to my eero Wi-Fi System.

Eufy Video Doorbell 2K (Wired) Review

After bricking my Nest Hello, I decided to get the Eufy Video Doorbell 2K (Wired) from Eufy US Website. I chose Eufy after reading Domotics review on Eufy Doorbell 2K (Wired). The author, Mike, also encountered the same thing with his Nest Hello Doorbell (Wired). He eventually gave up and bought a Eufy Video Doorbell 2K (Wired). So I thought, it works for him, it should work for me.

I paid US$115.48 (S$156) for the Eufy Video Doorbell 2K (Wired). That is after a US$40 discount from their retail price of US$155.48. Shipping from my freight forwarder, HopShopGo, to Singapore is an additional US$19.96 (S$27) via DHL.

Google Nest Hub (2nd Generation)

Bought the Google Nest Hub (2nd Generation) from a Lazada store named Project KR for S$99.99 during their flash sale on 9th September 2021. Shipping is free since I have collected the free shipping voucher. If not, it will be S$1.49.

For S$99.99, it is an excellent deal since, in the US, it is already selling for US$99.99, and you have not factored in shipping to Singapore yet.

Xiaomi Mi Multifunctional Digital Clock

Bought the Xiaomi Mi Multifunctional Digital Clock during a random flash sale on Lazada where it was selling for S$16.99 with free delivery to Singapore. Its usual retail price is S$19.80.

The digital clock comes with a 3.7″ e-ink display and you can connect it to the Mi Home App (available for both iOS and Android) using Bluetooth. However, your Mi Home app region must be set to China. I am using Singapore, and hence I am not able to detect the digital clock. I can’t be bothered to switch the region just because I intend to use it as a display.

These are the international version, so that they will come with the correct adapter plug. Also, note that some Alexa Skills may not be available for all countries.
