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

Credit: Lenovo

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.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
