Basically i would wish for the Yeelight branded wall switches like what Aqara is offering, without the need of a hub (either Mijia or Aqara) or their apps. Having them connected directly via zigbee and integrated with the Yeelight ceiling lamps and LED bulbs directly would have been perfect.
Using a 3rd party switch would have been conflicting because your Alexa/Home/Mijia has to know which one to control (the switch, or the lamp?) since they are both intelligent in its own way and powered up separately (therefore the need for neutral in some houses for the safety measure). This is a confusing setup and not easy for new smart home starters.
The best and perfect solution in my wish list would be having universal switches (wired with/without neutral and wireless as a choice) with capabilities of:
- Whatever the current remote control can offer,
- Allows zigbee between switches and lamps/bulbs,
- Allows feedback to lamps/bulbs when controlled using switches (shares same on/off control and status)
- Allows update on switches on/off status when lamps/bulbs are controlled via app or Alexa/Home (basically same concept as a response on the above point)
I would raise both hands and feet to support this, being a proud buyer of many Yeelight ceiling lamps, bulbs and aurora light strips, while I can see that Yeelight is growing with more products. This would actually be a great necessity not to be missed!
