Can you add a way for using static IP Adresses with Yeelights? I really love the Yeelights and not having to use a Gateway is really good. But the Dhcp of the light strip is causing problems. Every few days the Strip or bulbs will begin to lose Connection to Amazon Alexa. I checked the IP and that always changed by then. I tried to set up static IP from Router site, but does not work well.
Happens to Bulbs as well as Yeelight Strips.
It would be great, when it would be possible to set the IP Address as static from the Yeelight App.
Also I would really love to see a Wifi Version for the Bedside Lamp. The Lamp itself is great and I love it. But the Bluetooth Connection is failing almost daily, and every Time must completly unplug, before it will connect again with Yeelight App.
I also got some problem time by time; the Light need 4-5 seconds to turn On but after a couple of time the speed became stable (less then 1second). I will try this solution also - maybe can fix my issue.
I am having a similar issue. I’ve setup static ips from the router. But I’ve soon found out that one of the rgbw lights changes into a new mac address and then the router assigns a different ip address to the same light. I am using the lights with home assistant and having issues there. Because home assistany setup requires static ips. The yeelight app has no problem as it also discovers the new ip address after a time. The best fix will be the ability of the lights taking a static ip. Or fixing so that the lights don’t change mac address.
Also the mac change might be a problem with the router.
I tried to recreate the issue with no luck.
I’ve assigned a fixed ip to the invalid mac address and it seems that the bulb does not change to that anymore. With your information, it might have been a issue with the router itself.
