Yeelight not working with Alexa any more


#1

I’ve been using a couple of Yeelights for a year or so now & they always worked fine with Alexa.
When I first signed up I used my mobile number for account name and used the Singapore server.

However for some reason they stopped working around 4 weeks ago, I reset them. 5 x power on / off.

Rediscovered the bulbs in the Yeelight app which worked fine but Alexa just will not discover them anymore.

I’ve tried various servers & am currently on the Singapore one, My MI ID: 1689951913 & I’ve logged out & back on for different servers but the ID stays the same, using my mobile number & a password to log on.
Enabled & disabled the skill repeatedly via Alexa app & tried Alexa discover devices numerous time.

I see on this forum that many people have had the same issues of late, hoping someone from Yeelight can help me out?

We will take a look.

Old Yeelight I see, new version I do not see anymore

Hi. Terribly sorry. What do you mean “Old Yeelight I see, new version I do not see anymore”. How many devices do you have and which ones can not be discovered anymore?


#5

Sorry I was in hurry
3 of YLDP02YL AC220 V RGBW E27 I see in:
MiHome App
Yeelight App
Amazon Alexa (Yeelight and MiHome skill activated)

2 of YLDP06YL 10W RGB E27 I see in:
MiHome App
Yeelight App

BUT I do not see in:
Amazon Alexa (Yeelight and MiHome skill activated, together or one than another)

All firmware updated.

PS Also I shared smart lights to my family, they can control it, but it is not permitted for them to schedule something.
Why???

Hi. I have tried and it worked fine. May I invite you to a beta testing skill? Please send your amazon identifier to luhaobo@yeelight.com with subject “apply for Yeelight dot testing skill”. Thanks.

Hi, if you can tell me where I find my Amazon identifier I will do so?


#11

Your amazon id is the user name you login your amazon account. It is more like an email address.


#12

Can also try?


#13

yes, please


#14

Hello i’m facing the same trouble for a couple of weeks now, i tried everything i could but Alexa is still not finding anything. Can you please help me ? I’m sending to you an email with thé details you requested. Thanks a lot for your help.


#15

Hi there, same problem, just got my Echo dot and I can’t get it to work with my yeelights. Tried all the servers.


#16

Then, what’s the problem for details? Yeelight lamps not detected? Or voice command not work?


#17

Yeelights appear on the yeelight app. Skill installed, all lights set to Singapore server, but Alexa app does not detect any of them.


#18

Please show me your xiaomi id. (Make sure you have login with same account in Yeelight app and Alexa app->Yeelight Skill)


#19

Any news about Alexa + Yeelights ? (detected, but appears disconnected)
Singapore, German servers are already tried …

This problem has been submitted for a too long time.
Where is the solution ? Somebody work on it ?

Or maybe we need to change all lights to a more serious product like Philips Hue ?

I’m really disappointed, like lot of people here …

And yes, I logged in using the same account on Yeelight and Alexa
