#61

Hi there!
New Alexa & Yeelight user here.
Singapore Server in Yeelight app. Fully activated MI Account.
Tried removing aws and activating skill in alexa app.
Everytime I grant permissions on my way to activate skill, once I hit the ‘submit’ button the skill page reappeares and the skill remains inactivated.
Afterwards aws is activated, the skill is not.
Tried the usual stuff (Turning apps/devices on/off etc.)
Any suggestions?
Cheers

Hello. I am a US user and I have the yeelight white bulb. It is connected to the MiHome app via the Mainland China server. Bulb works fine in MiHome app, but I cannot connect to Alexa. When I hit “discover” within the Alexa app, nothing happens. I tried changing the locale within MiHome to Singapore. When I scan for the device, the bulb is not recognized. I tried adding it manually, but the white bulb is not even in the list for the Singapore server. When I go back to Mainland China server, it works fine in MiHome app, but no Alexa. Please help - how do I get this bulb to talk to Alexa?


#64

To better work with Alexa, please choose Yeelight app instead of MiHome app. Then you need to reset your bulbs (by turn on/off five times in a row), choose Singapore server in App and then re-configure the bulb through app. After that, enable Yeelight skill in Alexa app and run device discovery.

Hi guys,
I have the problem that my yeelight skill can not be activated. I’m a German user and my yeelight app works fine. I’m using the singapore.server. If I try to activate my yeelight skill in the alexa app, I log in to my mi account but the skill remains unactivated. I tried deleting the AWS permissions but tthis doent help either. Setting everything up from the beginning also didn’t work. Help please!


#66

Thank you. That was helpful.


#67

Could you post some screen capture here? I don’t quite understand “skill remains unactivated”…


#68

Hey weiwei,

thanks for your fast answer.
I found a solution myself. When I tried to activate the Yeelight skill in my Alexa Smartphone app, it didn’t work.
Now I activated the skill on my computer and everything works fine!

Will I be able to use Yeelight Bedside Lamp (bluetooth) with Alexa?


#70

The answer is NO, only Yeelight WiFi based devices are supported. Yeelight bedside Lamp is based on bluetooth.

Hello @weiwei any news regarding simultaneous function of alexa voice commands & control via xiaomi smart gateway?

If not, any other workaround for that guyz?


#72

Sorry, no update regarding this issue.


#73

Thanks for your information. I test it out. Thats s good idea. Greetings from Germany


#74

dear Wei2,

does alexa can check the status of lights (which room are on and which room are off)?
thank you in advance…


#75

Alexa is developing the new generation API, which internally called vNext, it has the capability. We are working on this new API recently.

Hello,

I am unable to discover yeelight strip at all under Alexa echo dot. It is working with app and Singapore server.
Tried to re-enable skill, reinstall app, reset strip, situation is still same.

Any ideas?

Thank you,

Lukas

Resolved by enabling upnp on the router, but I am not happy with the security risk


#78

It has nothing to do with your router. If you disable upnp, it will also work.


#79

Alright, well today i was able to turn up the strip with Alexa. After that strip was unavailable on wifi even under mobile app.Is IFFTT still more viable for yeelight products? I dont want to reset the device and reinstall apps every day.
