I have dozen of v2 bulbs (YLDP06YL), couple of Alexa devices and live in Europe.
My configuration was: lights added to Yeelight app (iOS) then to Alexa = everything is fine, I can manage, etc.
Now I took Xiaomi gateway, couple of sensors, bunch of switches and realized that I can’t manage my lights because Mi Home German server can’t detect bulbs, and Yeelight app can’t see switches and do any automation because it’s just not supposed to.
Okay, I thought and switched servers for Yeelight and Mi Home to China. Since that moment I can successfully add YLDP06YL to Mi Home, create automation rules, etc. But now I cannot detect anything in Alexa. I tried these Alexa skills: Mi Home, Mi Home (Asia) and Yeelight. Nothing works at all, Alexa just don’t see YLDP06YL no matter what I try.
So, options I wish I could have (any of it):
- Detect YLDP06YL bulbs in German server in Mi Home app, create automations and import these lights to Alexa, enjoy my life.
- Let Yeelight app detect lights connected to China server, import them to Alexa, enjoy my life.
- Any other solution when I still can make my automation rules with sensors, switches, YLDP06YL bulbs and Alexa.
Is there any? I know there is some Yeelight beta testing program which allows to import lights from Yeelight app connected to China server. This might be a temporary solution for me, but still will be great to know a solid one.
Thank you in advance.
