Yeelight LightStrip Mi Home issue


I recently purchased a led strip plus from yeelight. I am a Romanian resident and have purchased it in Romania. I have encountered the following problem:

I can connect the led strip with no problem via the yeelight app from google store but I cant manage to connect the light strip to the mi home app, it doesn’t show up when I try to search it and I can’t also add it manually (when I connect to the WIFI from the led strip).

I have set up the region for Yeelight app for eastern Europe (Frankfurt server) and for the mi home app I have set the location to Romania, my home country. I tried changing the location to Germany from the mi home app and still not showing. Also, if I change to mainland china in the mi home app I can pair it with no problem.

Normally I wouldn’t have a problem with this but I have some motion detection sensors already set up on the mi home app that I would like to pair with the lightstrip.

Can you please give me an idea of what to do?
Thank you in advance.
