Packaging and equipment
Supplied in a white box in the manner of a Xiaomi product. The product itself is drawn on the front side, and the dispenser parameters and assembly data on the back. Includes plastic wall mount. It has tape for easy installation, which I did right away. Tore off the barely old mount from the dispenser, which had not lived for a long time, by the way, here is a review on it
The dispenser is made and attracted attention with just this round body made of white plastic. Front round black display and nothing else
In general, this gold strip serves not only for decoration – it is also a button for turning on / off and viewing data on the display. The strip has a motion sensor and a rubber foam nozzle.

Then the thought came to disassemble it and look what was inside.
A good idea to assess the possibilities for renovation. I decided to share with you. It is easy to understand, 4 screws, and then everything is on scotch tape. Screw-on boards
