Everytime I try to use my bulbs I have to manually turn them on and off (even 2 or 3 times) so the yeelight app/googlehome/Apple HomeKit app detecta them! It’s so annoying since now the bulbs are way more complicated than regular bulbs!! I read somewhere that I needed to log off and then log in once more that dos not do the trick. The bulbs are on the latest firmware. Any help!??
I believe I have the same problem. Reported it on Home Assistant’s github issues.
Do you have the light bulbs on Home Assistant?
There will be a firmware update for bulb 1S recently, you can update your bulb to see whether still have this problem.
Do you know when? I see the same issue - namely:
The bulb stops responding to commands after 5-15 minutes.
Commands sent via TCP, CLI (using YeeCLI), and Home Assistant are all ignored; the bulb shows “closed connection”.
The bulb still stays on the WiFi network and can be pinged though.
Powering off and on resolves the issue for 5-15 minutes. LAN mode is enabled, and newest firmware (2.0.6_0030) from China mainland.
I will be happy to beta test if there is a newer version, my ID is: 6359663147
I have the same problem.
The light stop work about few hours
Firmware : 2.0.6_0041
Same problem since ever!
I have several Yeelight products and most of them randomly disconnect. For example I have a room with 4 lightstripe and 4 builb. For 2/3 weeks everything works fine. At some point I must restart some light stripe or some bulb.
I tried to isolate the product on a new WiFi I didn’t got any benefit.
Packet loss is 8% even if the router is 1.5meter away from the light stripe.
In my opinion the WiFi received component is too much cheaper…or maybe after 1/2 years it just stop working because it’s old.
Not a good point if you did buy 400 euro of Yeelight products and now discover this issues.
Hope to see some workaround…
