Same here

Why is not working. Please help!!!


I have the same issue today.
After jumping from yeelight app to home app, the Home app request the HomeKit code.
It shouldn’t request the code, because no code on lightstrip plus.
Everything is the last update. Firmware, iOS, Yeelight app.
MiHome app also doesn’t allow to add.
Please help.


Thank you

I wonder if somebody from yeelight is reading this topics…

I managed to get it working.
I bought 4 Yeelight light strip plus. 2 worked ok and integrated with HomeKit immediately from Mi Home App and Yeelight app.
2 of them would not connect from either Mi home or Yeelight.
So this is what I did:

  1. On Mi Home app changed my server location from Chinese mainland to one in Europe.
  2. Added the strips to this new empty home.
  3. Removed the recently added strips
  4. Changed back to Chinese mainland server
  5. Added the light strips
  6. And then followed the usual process: from Mi Home or Yeelight app
  7. It worked.

Let me know if it works for you.
