I’ve been using one Yeelight RGB Bulb for a couple of months now and was very satisfied.
I tried to connect it to Alexa yesterday and it didn’t worked.
Then I did 2 things which have maybe led to my problem.
I read a comment at the Alexa Skill that you should rename your bulb and change the server to Singapore.
1.) I changed the name of the Yeelight in the Yeelight App from the standard name to “Wohnzimmer” (means “Living Room”).
2.) I changed my server from “China Mainland” to “Singapore” (I’m from Germany).
Now I have the problem that I cannot add the bulb in the Yeelight App anymore.
I have resetted the bulb 10 times now.
- Turn it off and on 5 times
- Light is flashing in different colors
- Light stays white
- I can see the yeelight wifi in my smartphone and connect to it
- I cannot see the bulb in the Yeelight App or Mihome App
I have tried everything now but I cannot connect it anymore even if I switch back to “China Mainland”.
One thing I have recognized is that if I turn my WiFi Router off, a second wifi network is opened by the bulb.
One is called “yeelight …” and the second is called “Wohnzimmer.b” like the name I switched the bulb to.
If I switch ma WiFi Router on again the second WiFi Network “Wohnzimmer.b” disappears after a few seconds.
So the reset of the bulb maybe didn’t reset ALL of the settings?
I hope someone can help me.
