The new mijia bedside lamp gen 2 didn´t show deep red colours like my old yeelight lamp 1. The red colour is not red, is like white with a little orange. What happen? i´m very dissapointed as i sold my old lamp and this seems to be worse.
Note: When I plug the lamp into the wall during one second the colour is deep red, then it changes to the colour I say before. It seems that white leds turns on after that second and ruins the colour. It´s very strange.
the deep color light has lesser lumen, so it looks darker, when you used it in night, you had to try more to see other things.
on the contrary, with a little soft color, first it is brighter, then it has bigger CRI, so it help people easier to see other thing around.
I don´t want the red colour to “look better at things”, I want it also for creating ambiance or to decorate. This new bedside directly lacks from a red colour because it´s orange. For me you ruined the lamp. At least give options to select what I want. Why I can´t select a pure colour? The old bedside lamp can, my old philips living colours can, but this new lamp? If I want to look better at things I have the white mode.
For example red light is used by astronomers to preserve night vision and pupil dilatation, it´s nothing new. Read this:
Definitely there is a problem with the lamp. Today I plugged the lamp into the wall, turned it on and…surprise! it´s red!!! like my old gen bedside lamp.
Then I opened the yeelight app and it appears as offline.
After turning on, off several times, the lamp appears again as online and when i changed the color, and i selected red again in the app…the red dissapears and the white-orange red came back again.
I´m not sure yet, but as i have seen in another thread there is a problem with the wifi SSID. I have created a guest SSID “MiWifi” without hyphens or dots (my other SSID is NAME_2.4Ghz)and now it seems that the lamp doesn´t disconect. Can you try this?
