How to connect MiJia light to iPhone?


#1

I have a new MiJia light. I was trying to connect the desk lamp to my iPhone but somehow it just would not connect.

I have iPhone 6s with latest Yeelight app.

I still can connect to my Yeelight Lamp (bed side lamp) without issues.

Am I missing something?

Mijia desk lamp is a WiFi product. You need a router and connect the lamp to the router firstly.

Hi Weiwei

Thanks for the comment.

router here refers to my internet router? I have wifi at home but how do I connect to my wifi since there’s nowhere for me to enter the Wifi name and password?

Thanks

Please open Yeelight app and then find “add new device” in up right corner. Then follow the guide of the app and you will be able to connect it.

HIi Weiwei

That’s exactly the steps that I am unable to connect. I tried “add new device” and selecting the desk lamp. All it shows is a greyed out “Next” button and the lamp never connects.

No, I mean you should not do this. Keep your phone connected to your home network.
