so i’ve bought RGB Light Bulbs and the Ceiling Light. I’m pretty happy with it. Expect that i cant add the ceiling light to the Mi Home App.
I’ve added the light bulbs without any problems. Only the ceiling light is a problem. I’ve connected the remote control to it.
In the app itself there i no option for the ceiling light. If i click on add Device, there are only these devices : Mi Air Purifier2, Mi Air Purifier Pro, Mi Air Purifier, Yeelight Color Bulb, Mi LED Desk Lamp, Some Fan with chinese description, Zhimi Humidifer, Mi Robot Vacuum & Mi WiFi Repeater 2.
Cause Ceiling light has not been sold abroad officially. There’s no Ceiling light option if you don’t select “Mainland China” locale. So if you want connect Ceiling Light via MiHome, please change your locale to “Mainland China”.
However, You can connect to Singapore server by Yeelight application.
BTW, could you see red cross after it stoped at like 20% or so?
I have Mi Home and Yeelight app installed. In Yeelight app I added the ceiling light. If I want to add to Mi Home app too, it ask me to factory reset the device. It is possible to add ceiling light to both app in the same time?
I want to control my ceiling light with Xiaomi wireless wall switches. In Yeelight app alone I can’t use the Xiaomi switches, I think.
MiHome and Yeelight share the same cloud server, and Mihome support Ceiling light only in Mainland china server. So please select Mainland china server, the lamp will appear in both apps if you connect it successfully.
Yeah, probably this is the problem. Mi Home = Mainland China, Yeelight = USA server. I reseted the light, changed the server location (I tried all) and when I want to setup again I see the light, but I am unable to connect to it.
More info: I tried to set up from my iPad, at this time while connecting blinked around 10-20%, so I think it was registered successfully on the server (mainland china), but it doesn’t show up in my devices. Very weird.
First light: added without problem
Second light: added, around 10-20% it blinked multiple times, but counter in the app still counted to 100% then Connection Failed. I quit the pairing process and the light showed up normally in my devices after few seconds. Weird.
Third light: same as second light
Fourth light: added without problem
Fifth light: added without problem
Sixth light: same as second light
All my lights are on FW 1.5.9_0184
You guys definitely need to improve registering process.
