Alexa won't discover my Yeelight bulbs


#21

Good luck!

Hi there,
Now that I moved my yeelight bulbs to Singapore Server I want to try all digital assistants to see how they work. Google Assistant and IFTT work great with my bulbs, but Amazon doesn’t.
I am total newbee on Amazon Alexa and I don’t have any Alexa enabled smart speaker. I only tried it with the App on my smartphone.
I have successfully connected my Yeelight-Xiaomi account to Amazon Alexa, but when I tried to add my bulbs I get the “Discovery failed” message.
@sheldon or anyone else from Yeelight could you please log my account? I will send you my xiaomi ID with a PM.

Thanks

Send me your XIAOMI ID please, i will check it.


#24

Sorry, it’s not about your account,the reason is you must have an Alexa smart speaker.


#25

Ok, thank you very much. As a Google fanboy I’ll definitely stay with Google Assistant :wink:

Hello , I’ve ordered an Alexa assistant I will get it in a few days. I tried the Alexa apps with the Yeelight skills but my bulbs are not recognized. I’m using the Singapore server , it’s working with ifttt.

I read some other article where also mentioned the same thing related to Alexa. I read this Windows Defender customer service and that means it’s a common issue of Alexa? I want to know more about this please refer me to any page related to this topic.

Device connected to Mainland China server won’t work with Alexa. Try to reset your device and connect to any other server.
