Yeelight app doesn't see YLDP25YL

I just received 4 YLDP25YL lamps.

The Yeelight app doesn’t recognize the lamps…
Using a BLE scan app I can see the lamps, as “Mesh Mi Light” but Yeelight app sees nothing.

What do I do?

Hello, this bulb needs to be used with Bluetooth mesh gateway. The mesh gateway needs to be connected before the lamp is connected.

I already have the mesh gateway installed and connected.

I switched my Yeelight app to “Mainland China” region and suddenly it discovers the lamps…

Why is it region locked to china?
I don’t want my private data on Chinese servers…
