Sometimes this light works fine with Homekit, but it generally disconnects at least once a day. There seem to be two ways to get it to connect:
Cycle the power. Wait a while. Maybe it will reconnect and maybe not.
“Play” with the light for a while in the Yeelight app. It will initially say “disconnected” but after turning it on and then off several times it will eventually reconnect to the Yeelight app. Some time later it might reconnect with HomeKit.
I’m away from home a lot, so these “solutions” aren’t really much of a solution.
I have communicated with Yeelight support on this, but they seem to have given up and have stopped responding.
Please don’t suggest that I reset the light. I have done that dozens of times. It works briefly but then the light starts disconnecting again.
Should I just dump it in the trash and try another brand?
