Yakui Diffuser Humidifier with Alexa and Google Home control


First published at 16:14 UTC on April 16th, 2018.

I have tried plenty of aromatherapy burners before, many that closely resemble this one, but this is the first I have tried that works with Amazon Echo (Alexa) and Google Home voice control. In fact, there is three way to control this device: using the front panel buttons, using the app, or by voice using Amazon Alexa or Google Home.

Yakuin’s latest aromatherapy oil diffuser/humidifier arrived packaged in an attractive but low key product box. Inside was the diffuser itself, a power supply with a UK plug, a measuring jug and a two well written and easy to read colour User Guides, one for the basic setup and the other for the phone app. I enclose a scan of these in my unboxing video.

The unit has a 400ml water capacity which should allow for longer operating times than many smaller rivals. I found it would work for several hours before turning itself off as it does when it detects the water reservoir is empty. It is made of pastel-toned plastic and which is a pleasant change from the usual rather garish designs.

Operating the unit could not be easier. Plug the power cord to the underside of the base, detach the Upper Cover and Water Tank Cover from the base, fill the unit with water to the indicated mark on the tank, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil, replace the covers, and switch on. There are just three buttons. The right-hand button controls the LED light mode and brightness. The middle button turns the wifi connection on or off. The right button controls the misting effect there are three modes of use: continuous misting, intermittent misting and Misting Off. The left-hand button controls the light, one press turns it on and begins a 15-second cycle through the seven colours, press again to set the light brightness, a third press will switch to the next colour, press again to turn the light off. It can be used with the light or diffuser running alone. It also has a timer which can be set to one, three, six hours and continuous.
