As I wrote in one of previous topics, I have installed recently a flex switch which basically keep one of my lamp always connected and I can turn it on and off from my phone, remote controll and wall switch.
I love the idea. However as I mentioned here, most of my lamps do not support such switch.
I’m looking for a closest solution for a rest of my lamps (YLXD16YL and YLXD12YL). What Yeelight or third party options do I have? (basically I want to be able to turn on my lamp with phone, wall switch, automation rules)
For automations I’m using Xiaomi Gateway v2
- Xiaomi or Aqara wireless switch. Set up automations in the app and you are good to go. May require internet to work.
- Yeelight bluetooth dimmer switch. Wired or wireless. One switch can control multiple lights ( although they won’t sync up). Multiple switches can control the same light.
- yeelight remote
1 . may require internet but you can assign buttons to other automations. 2 and 3 is more reliable, doesn’t require internet but cannot be used for anything else
- Stick them on wall next to the old switch or on top of the old wall switch (after removing the toggle so that it’s flat)
1 . You probably have the aqara switch (upgraded version) which requires the aqara hub. What’s the website for sourcing these for you? I can find it for you. But here it is on Aliexpress
