2 x YEELIGHT Lightstrip + Room + Flow = Colors out of sync... :-(


#1

Greetings,

In the Android app I created a Room and added my 2 YEELIGHT Lightstrips. I then set it to use the Flow scene with max (100) brightness and the slower (1) speed.
Everything works great at the beginning, both lightstrips show and change colors at the same pace…

…but after some minutes (20 more or less) the lightstrips start to drift apart… the lightstrips slowly start to show slightly different tones of color… and after another 20 minutes one lightstrip is showing red and the other is showing blue… they get completely out of sync… it is as if one lightstrip is faster than the other…

Can one lightstrip be faster than the other ? It doesn’t make any sense…
Please remember that both lightstrips are “paired” in a Room using the same Flow (speed) settings…

The whole purpose of Rooms isn’t to sync different lightstrips (and lamps) together so they have the same behavior all the time ?

Am I making something wrong ?
What could be making one lightstrip flow “faster” than the other ?

Well I would appreciate your thoughts and help about this…

Thank you and best regards.

They will start to drift apart after longer time, shorter scenes should be ok… Yo can’t realistically expect to run scene for an hour and that everything will be in sync. You can, but you’d have to send the commands manually by yourself from the API, and even then you’d have the latency of your router and wifi… who knows how scenes work, probably they send the whole scene to the bulb and from then on, the bulb does everything itself… and the CPUs probably react a bit slowly etc. SO yes, the only way is to run your own app and send API commands…

…so I guess devs/staff have nothing to add to this… it’s a shame.

I guess I will wait for the Yeelight Plus (if that even exists) or try different solutions from other manufactures.

Thanx anyway.
