Bedside lamp 2.0 (WIFI+Bluetooth) - no connection via bluetooth


#1

Hi,

yesterday I received the new bedside lamp (WIFI + Bluetooth) and i can’t connect the device via bluetooth.

Connection via WiFi is working!

But your yeelight-app on my smartphone Samsung Galaxy S7 can’t connect via bluetooth. Manualy I see a bluetooth device called “mi_mtk” on my local bluetooth device settings and I can also pair it manualy.

But your yeelight app can’t find and see this bedside light :frowning: I tryed it with the normal bedside lamp (silver) and the new bedside lamp (gold) in your app.

The lamp can’t connect via bluetooth.

the bluetooth function is for bluetooth gateway.


#4

then your advertisement is wrong!

“Communication mode: Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11 b/g/n 2.4GHz,蓝牙 4.2 BLE”

but it must be:
“Communication mode: Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11 b/g/n 2.4GHz”
Gateway: 蓝牙 4.2 BLE"

Really unhappy about this downgrade of this feature!!!

Personally I was happy that I was able to control the lamp via bluetooth. I don’t care that they removed the bluetooth feature, because wifi is better.

Wifi is not better if you want to use the lamp offline at a place without internet/wifi!!!

And I bought the lamp because I thought I could use WiFi and bluetooth.
Wifi at an online place, bluetooth at an offline place.

Is not actually advertised otherwise! I find it disappointing that this feature has been removed!

You can return the lamp and purchase the old version.


#8

yes i can do it, but i must pay the return shipping costs and they are expensive! That’s why I’m very angry about Xiaomi!


#9

Did you pay via paypal?


#10

Actually, I could use the free Paypal return shipping :slight_smile:


#11

That’s what I was going to say! PayPal offers free return shipping to £15 in my country. Paypal also has great support.
