Xiaomi Mi Smart LED Bulb Essential - Yeelight/Alexa connection issues


I purchased 2 Xiaomi Mi Smart LED Bulb Essential (White and Color). When trying to add them to Yeelight app it discovers it, sets it and on Change name step returns “Name too long” for any input (on iPhone).
It can be added to Xiaomi Home app and renamed however then it doesn’t appear in Yeelight app.
Also Alexa is unable to discover lights.

It seems like a known issue, is there any workaround?
I would also like to enable LAN control for it.


I need the same, enabling the lan control is very important.
