I've been following this thread for a long time, waiting for the bulbs to work with Alexa without additional automation like home assistant.
Finally I see people getting the gateway working on Singapore server and that's amazing. I've tried to replicate stormdreamer (awesome man) steps on my setup but I was always get a timeout.
While reading this thread, I noticed malnabokor post (thanks a lot man) saying that there is the new "mi home" skill for Alexa that supports China server for yeelight bulbs and bam! It really works. Finally I can control the lights with Alexa
The point is, now that we have a skill that controls the lights in China server, what's the point of moving into Singapore server?
Keep the good work everybody! You guys rock!
