Yeelight lightstrip +Xiaomi Aqara body movement sensor +Gateway


#1

Hi,
I have a Xiaomi gateway and Aqara body movement sensor. I would like to create automation rules on Xiaomi gateway if body motion on Aqara sensors is detected -> then turn the Yeelight lightstrip on. In Mihome app there is no option to add the Yeelight lightstrip as a device, so it seems that there is no way to automate the lightstrip?

There definitely is a way to add the strip. Try adding it in Yeelight app if you can’t in MiHome.


#3

I can add it in the Yeelight app, but in that app there is no options to control it with automation rules on the Xiaomi gateway/Aqara body sensor. For those automation rules to implement, lightstrip would have to be added in Mihome app.

I know… I thought they may be added to MiHome if you add them to Yeelight since they use same server


#5

There is an option to add the Yeelight strip - look carefully or search Yeelight Lightstrip
What server is your Mi Gateway on?


#6

If you mean the region in Mihome app, it is set to Mainland China. In the gateway device itself, I didn’t find any additional region settings.

I’ve updated the app to the latest version, and now it shows the Yeelight lightstrip. Thank you!
