yeelight 1SE(color) cannot connet Alexa

I recently bought 2 smart led bulb 1SE (color) and I’m able to control them through Yeelight App.
I successfully control them using IFTTT app.
I tried to link both lamps to Alexa using Yeelight skill but Alexa is unable to find the devices (the 45 seconds timeout expires).

My Xiaomi/Yeelight account ID is the following: 6272271545.

I also tried with Yeelight Frankfurt and Singapore servers too with no success.

Please, could you help me?

some tip for me?

Same here

I wrote their support addressing this issue and they confirmed this bulb cannot be linked with Alexa ensuring their engineers are working to fix it ASAP (this is the response).

Can you please ask if this is also same for Google Home app? I can’t seem to add 1se to Google Home and I’m not sure if there is something wrong on my end or just not compatible.

@haven787 I tried with google home mini too and I had same issue: it’s impossible to link 1SE to google home, IMHO, for the same reason. you can write to and they will answer within 24h.
I’m a little bit disappointed with yeelight: the bulb works very well with their app but they declared it’s compliant with Alexa and Google too and only once I received the item I discovered this issue…
I hope they will fix asap!

Yes same here. I thought it would work with Google Home or even Smartthings but it does not. Thanks, will drop them an email maybe they will hopefully fix it soon.

I hope Yeelight doesn’t forget this issue!

Hi All, with new bulb firmware update Alexa has detected my lamps!
Now it works, great!
Working FW version is: 2.0.8_0007
