Yeelight ceiling light remote switch reprogramme


#1

Hi, not sure if this was asked previously, can the Yeelight ceiling light remote switch be reprogrammed to control other groups of bulbs? Currently the only way I can control my Yeelights is via voice control. Am also trying to link the yeelights to Hue Bridge so I can use the Hue Dimmer Switch. Would be great if there is a remote control that can turn on/off, dim, change colour of the Xiaomi/yeelight smart bulbs. Appreciate the assistance!

I am afraid not, remote is paired with ceiling light via bluetooth. But there’s no bluetooth module in bulbs.

Thank you for the quick response. What a pity that it doesn’t support the rest of the Yeelight setup. I think that the Yeelight brand has gotten most of the things right but the sore thumb sticking out is the lack of remote control support.

Any chance Yeelight is developing a wifi-remote control that is able to control the bulbs, Lightstrips, downlights etc.?

I don’t think the WiFi remote is plausible. WiFi consumes way too much power. Maybe a zigbee remote?


#5

Agree! Way too much!

Zigbee, like Philips Hue Dimmer? I thought the Yeelights are not compatible with Zigbee standard :frowning:

They are if you use Xiaomi Gateway (Hub)
