I received my yeelight 1S Bulb yesterday and so far I’m very dissapointed. I bought it because it is claimed to be homekit supported and because I already own a aurora lightstrip which works fine with homekit. However the bulb does not, it doesn’t use actual whites in the white mode of Homekit, which makes them very dim compared to the yeelight app. This ruins the experience for me since it makes them basically unusable with the Homekit app. Shortcuts aren’t a solution either, as it makes it very complicated to adjust the scenes and make it look good.
In my opinion Yeelight should not be advertising their Bulbs as Homekit compatible as long as they don’t work properly in the Homekit app. This has been a Issue for years now and no fixes. There’s no excuse for it. If the Yeelight staff is aware of the problem with HSV/CT mixing then don’t advertise it as Homekit compatible period. I updated my firmware yesterday and there still isn’t a fix. Either fix your coding, as complicated as it is or contact apple but this is not fair for customers who buy it for Homekit systems and it ruins your reputation Yeelight.
I have seen @weiwei respond to this issue a few times and I think as difficult as it is to fix, you had enough time to fix it. This problem has been present since 2018 and were in 2021 now, that is 3 years without a fix or even an apology. Come on yeelight you can do much better.
I was very pleased with my lightstrip because of the very easy integration but this makes me doubt to buy any more yeelight products and I’m sure others felt the same and already switched to your competition.
