Hi, does it mean that the Xiaomi gateway will be able to support singapore server or they will release singapore/international version of gateway? Or we can have Yeelight to be registered under multiple server?
I am waiting to buy a new set of gateway but hesitate about the server issue.
One for automation: in my case for working with the Gateway, wireless switches and sensors to turn a couple yeelights on.
Use this account with the “Mi Home” app and set it for Mainland China (Settings - Language locale -> Mainland China)
Now you can’t use Mi Home linked to Alexa (Google?) because of the server
One for only Yeelights (no automation)
Use this account with the “Yeelight” app and set it for Singapore
(Settings - Server Locale -> Singapore)
Link the Yeelight account to Alexa (Google?)
Now you can use Alexa for a couple yeelights you want to change by speech or use the Yeelight app to change them.
Use automation for other yeelights or use the Mi Home app to change them.
Singapore server linked to Alexa and Yeelight app on my Phone
This is just a solution till Xiaomi automation products will accept Singapore server and can be linked with Alexa (Google?)
My Gateway hasn’t arrived yet but setup should work (tested two account with Yeelights and apps)
My only worry is how much distance the Gateway and other automation can have.
Next week i will reply my answer
